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!!!
