No my ECU is not flashed. I think you are correct in that it is the cut times - very slow. I'm considering disabling my KQS until I flash the ECU, and can control it. In terms of the experience I have, the KQS is inconsistent in the cut time, which unsettles the suspension (same as if you cut the throttle, and then cracked it). Maybe I'm not using KQS correctly. After a little experience with it, I now just apply firm and constant pressure when upshifting until it has shifted into the next gear. This is opposed to my original technique where I would just "bang" it hard once and not keep pressure on the shifter. Problem is though, my original technique would sometimes not engage the KQS entirely and it wouldn't shift up.

Interestingly when my bike was on the dyno being remapped the downshifter worked but didn't on the road. The guy that did the remap (Geoff at Hilltop Motorcycles) reckons he can activate the auto blipper with a resistor and a bit of wiring, total cost of a few pence. He didn't have any resistors when I was there but I intend to go back and get that activated soon. If he's correct then it means people paying $400 are being robbed blind!!!

I have to say initially I was rapt in the OEM quickshifter but the more I experience the bike at fast speeds/higher RPMs the less I am impressed.

I'll be getting the ECU Flashed (probably Woolich) when I can afford it so hopefully that'll help.

Yea I hated the OEM one too! Too much travel in the sensor. I like the Woolich sensor, much more positive feedback!

I would be working with a local tuner that has the hardware then so they can tweak the settings of the QS for you there locally. Otherwise you could be looking at doing a lot of sending back and forth custom tuning the QS settings.

The other option is to have the kit yourself and be able to set the QS times yourself to what works the best for you.

And I agree with Nick, the upgraded QS sensor is definitely an upgrade over the POS OEM sensor. I upgraded last year before it was released to the masses and my issues (undetected upshifts in high RPM/high gear, not detecting all my downshifts) went away. Two weekends ago I had enough free time and nice enough weather to actually use it with the adjustable kill times and man, it's spot on. How the bike should've come from Kawi.

Those were the same issues I was having. In addition, just the slack feel from it sucked. There are a couple corners we have at a local track here where we short shift while leaned over, the lack of a solid switch often left me wondering "did it catch?" In the middle of races, I don't want to have to think about how hard I need to press down.

With the WR switch, there's no question at all! Love it!

Although, I am yet to really mess with the kill times enough, I have a little bit and haven't found what I like. You mind sharing a range that you seem happy with for comparison purposes?

OEM Quick Shifter is Terrible!

We've got guys running 3s off Rea's best race lap at Chang International with stock quickshifter so can't be too bad. That's with race Ecu setting, so I think u need to get the settings better not replace the sensor.
