That's my recommendation also! I've rebuilt enough transmissions in my day to worry about the 1-2 shift going through neutral to not use the QS at that time. Especially on a road bike. Dricked and his racing experience says otherwise, and that's cool. Racing is a different animal than using the QS on some trackdays and the road. Gears 2 thru 6 only and no preloading it either!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
