    Healtech has been in the motorcycle electronics game for years. Mostly known for their "Speedo-Healer" back in the day.

    A few years ago they introduced the Quickshifter Easy, a self-contained, Bluetooth connected, app controlled ignition interrupt device to allow full power clutch-less upshifts on modern motorbikes. It's a great unit, and completely independent of any other devices. I have used this device on my Yamaha V-Max for a couple years now and couldn't be happier. Over the last few months since I got my Breakout I have been helping to develop the Quickshifter to suit the majority of Harleys. This unit was previously offered for the V-Rod, but primarily because it had Coil on Plugs, and a 6mm shift linkage. The Sensor for the Quickshifter Easy is a tiny little thing that fits over a 6mm shift rod. The majority of Harleys however have a 5/16" shift linkage. I developed a CNC machined, Stainless Steel capsule that allows fitment of this sensor to most Harley Dyna and Softail models. Then Healtech helped me develop special plug and play wiring harnesses in a variety of lengths to suit the different Harley models.

    I sold the first unit to a mate the other day, and we fitted it to her 883 Sporty at the track on the weekend(Benaraby Raceway, QLD). She loved it, and it worked so well she ripped right through the eliminations to take first place in the V-Twin class! Hers was a different fitment due to the lack of a shift linkage, but we made it work, and work well it did!

    Feel free to contact me if you are interested in going a little faster, or more consistent at the track. I also like mine for just powering through the gears on the street at part throttle.

    I love quickshifters on streetbikes, however, with how agricultural Harley boxes are, surely this isn't a good idea on a stock box? Especially at high rpm.

    Have you done any testing re: reliability etc?

    I had the same thoughts John, but have had mine on for a couple months now and it shifts quite smooth.

    Like any quickshifter, the key is in the setup.

    Hard core racers try to minimise the kill time (ms), and in a factory race cut sprotbike tranny this is a little less risky.

    However, getting greedy with kill times can be risky in any bike.

    The HealTech Quickshifter Easy is adjustable up to 140ms, which is huge.

    The default settings are 75-85ms and actually work quite well in the stock Harley gearbox.

    At higher rpms the shift actually gets smoother.

    I have mine set at 70ms and it works a treat.

    The factory belt drive on a Harley is also quite forgiving of any stress through the gearbox.

    My V-Max is shaft drive, and has no slack in the driveline other than the cush drive in the rear wheel and it too is quite smooth.

    Keep in mind, Pingel make an electric UP and DOWN shifter for Harleys (with their own ignition killbox) and it is rated for the stock tranny as well.

    Hey Pauly
    $450. will get you the Quickshifter module with sensor, the dedicated Harley Wiring harness of your choice (3 lengths available), and the two-piece stainless steel capsule with jamb nut. The capsule is threaded 5/16" x 24tpi male on one end and Female on the other, so it can be used with either type of shift linkage commonly available.(male shaft with female ball joints, or female shaft with male tie rod ends)
    If your bike has a fixed length (non-adjustable) shift linkage like the new Lowrider S, I can provide a custom length, stainless adjustable shift linkage with either factory type ball joints or Stainless female threaded tie rod ends. (cost will vary) Mounting to the Sporty takes a special dual-threaded bolt. i will have some of these made up shortly - also out of stainless.
    I have developed three different length wiring harnesses to suit the coil behind the rear cylinder, coil between the cylinders, and coil at the steering stem (Sporty).
    My current wiring harnesses suit approximately all of the Dynas and Softails between 2006-2017, and most of the Sporties since 2013 I believe.
    I have heaps of HD wiring harnesses on file. Before placing an order, please confirm the year and model of your bike and I will make sure it is compatible.
    Below are some pictures of what your coil plug should look like (similar) in order to utilise the wiring harnesses I have in stock.
    If you have any queries about your shift linkage, post up a pic and I'll help you work it out.
    Until then, download the iQSE-1 App and have a play with it. You'll be able to see all of the available parameters and get a feel for how to set it up. The app even gives a good explanation of each feature as well as links to FAQs.

    For Forum members I will even Express post for FREE Australia wide.

    Hooked up a bloke in Bundaberg with the New Quickshifter Easy!

    Works a treat on his 2011 CVO Softail convertible.

    See ya at the drag strip mate!
