Shifting up, i dont use it till going to 4th
down i dont use it 3rd to 1st
seems to work fine this way.
Although i have experienced it not wanting to go up at times.
I think the angle of the shift lever can improve this,, Perhaps lower it abit

OEM pegs, there is substantial play in the shiftrod as others have mentioned. I?ve tried moving the position around. Issue still there. Seems really only predominant in 1st gear under heavy acceleration.

Is it possibly the sensor or ecu has freaked out and for some reason the QS thinks you're in 6th gear, so it's not compressing, stopping you from shifting up?
Hey Siwa, did you manage to work out the kill times to stop this from happening? Im getting the same issue around 6 - 8k 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th on WOT...I'm getting BC to check it out Wednesday.

have you been able to sort out your qs issue? I just had R&G rear sets installed today, thinking it was the factory items were worn and causing this, unfortunately its still there.

Had a play with it again today. Time and time again 1st gear at 6-9k won’t shift. Tried turning of TC thinking that may have been impacting something, exact same issue. Turned off the QS and went old school shifting and it was butter. Must be QS module or ECU...I guess.

okay, so when you turned off QS on the dash, did you then shift with the clutch lever? or with out?

To be honest I don't think its the QS module, if the QS is working in other gears I'd say it was fine, what I have found is that even with a Woolich QS, R&G rearsets and woolich flash, I still get this at around 5000rpm - 6000rpm 3/4 hard acceleration....

I actually think its a factory fault with the ECU, I also believe it can be tuned out with a modification to kill times and other parameters within the QS settings in the woolich system, I just think its going to take some trial and error.

I'll keep this group abreast of my testing.
