    I want one
    Then bloody well buy one!  Seriously this thing is like an engine hop-up for speed and awesome for normal riding (I'm now officially a lazy barstool as very rarely use the clutch)

    Nothing bets a takeoff at the lights where you just nail the throttle wide open and LEAVE it nailed why you gently run through the gears just before the rev limiter kicks in.  brings a grin to my face every time.  

    If your pondering dropping several grand on a 'hot stage 23' build it would be well worth buying first.  For a few hundred you will not regret the investment.

    Thanks for the props Steve and Tussuck!  Grease Monkey's got his now as well :)

    Customers like these above get it. It's not 100% about drag racing. It just adds some real kick to the riding experience.

    These are headed to HealTech in volume now, and soon you will be able to get them from distributors worldwide.
    You will always be able to get them directly from me as well though, and if you're nearby, I'll happily install it for you while we down a couple coldies :)

    Cheers again to the forum for letting me spread the word here :)
    Ride hard guys and gals, and keep the shiny side up!

    Thanks Mike, she's a big thumbs up from me, both for the product and Mike, top bloke and service, now I need a shift light that don't look like shit that is rev programmable for each gear, any ideas?

    i reckon i'll be getting one of these soonish for my '13 fat bob.

    question though - i've ridden a few bikes with factory quick shifters and most of them made this wicked pop sound when shifting up, presumably something to do with the quick off/on throttle. do these do that too because i really enjoyed that haha.

    Feel like I should give this unit a proper plug, this shifter works exactly like Mike says, the app is simple to use and there are heaps of settings to fine tune with and if you need any help Mike is but a call or text away and gets back to you asap.
    You can ride it easy and just run up through the gears or go like the be-jusus and slam through them, as long as the engine is pulling you can utilise a no clutch upshift.
    I asked the question on here about a shift light, Mike got back to me and you can also get an updated module that has an output that is adjustable for both rpm and time on, so you can run a shift light or an air/electric type shifter as well if you wish.
    In fact I just got off the phone with Mike after he walked me through the set up for this feature, when you have the updated module the app knows and opens up the options to set it up.
    I don't have a light as yet but will sort something asap and report back.
    If you are in the wings on this don't be scared, once it's up and running the grin factor is there, to put it into perspective price wise, people spend more on a genuine Harley led headlight and never ride at night, you use this every ride and it's a hoot.
    Get on it.

    Yes....There are several out there (I have one out in the shed somewhere in my airshifter box).  Have you looked at the Healtech one...ugly little bugger BUT looks to be very feature rich.

    In pop do you mean like a backfire pop sound or just a slight 'something'?  I get the slight something from time to time and its pretty much dependent upon rpm at shift  x load so is pretty hard to judge when it happens.  90% of the time the shift is like riding an automatic bike with barely a change in bike sound between gears (more like a car running a paddle shift)

    Good on yah for getting one!  Bloody magic little units, did the bike feel like it had been hopped up?

    keep updating on the shift light etc as I would be keen to see how that pans out.  I'm not a racer or dragger, but have had to program the bike RPM limiter downwards as I kept hitting it all the time ... lol ... (I must have the only sporty around @ 5,000rpm ceiling)

    Flat wide open shifts are ok for stock bikes, but get a bike that has some savage torque & see what happens on a drag strip with full track prep with a stock wheelbase street bike!! you normally get a lot of air under your front wheel, ok at low speed but when it happens up the fast end of a quarter mile that gets hairy!
    I like to do a quick back off as I clutchless shift.

    Thanks for the props Grease Monkey!
    Glad I could hook you up with the custom module.
    Looking forward to seeing your shift light setup.

    As others said, HealTech do make the Shift Light Pro, and it has lots of features. But it requires Android, and a different app, and it is a little blocky looking.
    If you needed all the features it would be worth it, but for a simple shift light the iQSE Custom module is definitely the go.

    notcm - you queried about the pop. This is the result of unspent gasses in the exhaust igniting when the ignition comes back on.
    Not uncommon to hear this POP at the drag strip on some of the really hot jap bikes.
    This is not often heard on the Harley because the exhaust pulses are so significant already, however, setting your kill time really long would likely result in an audible pop.
    By the time you achieve a POP though, you may also feel the front end dive.
    As you set the kill time shorter, you will find the sweet spot where it feels nearly seamless, and then you will unlikely hear any pop.

    Baloffski - sounds good mate.
    99% chance your shift linkage is threaded 5/16" x 24tpi, but if you can verify that it would be much appreciated.
    Some folks have CVO shift linkages, or genuine Harley aftermarket that are threaded 5/16" x 18tpi.
    I keep stock for both styles so I got you covered.

    Thanks again HD FORUM AUSTRALIA for helping me share the word!
    Cheers

    Sounds like a fun item. 
    Pity it won’t work with my ‘05 Sporty (last of the carbies).

    I recon it would work as it cuts out the Coil not Injector....Drop a line to Mike and see what he has.

    The guy who makes them, told me it can be made to work on carb Harleys. think the switch built into shift linkage, would just need a ignition cut out timmer, to keep cut out time as short as possible.

    Correct....its a sensor with a unit the size of a box of matches with Bluetooth to an app on your phone where you program all the settings.  Just the bees knees!

    Krash it's adjustable for any scenario you can come up with, delay times, cut out time, RPMs, can even do different cut out times for various RPMs, you set it how you want it, magic little box.
