I want to preface this by admitting it was not my idea, but I found it on another forum while searching. Here is the Idea- If you have a power commander, use a generic pull switch and 9v battery adapter to make your own quickshifter instead of dropping $260.
Here is the thing- I want to make sure the connections are correct, so if you have a quickshifter, take a look and confirm for me the position of the pins on the expansion port plug. Also, does this item come with software?
1. get a PC 9v adapter
2. cut off the 9v plug and de-pin the red plug and move it to the top row corner opposite the black plug. (this location is what i want to confirm) in photo one the old location is shown with the black arrow and the location of the wires on a real DJ Quickshifter should be those shown by the black arrows.
3. use a switch to activate the quick-shift- the second photo shows my proof-of-concept experiment using the brake light switch from a 1000RR. Due to space constraints I chose to try it backwards with the switch on the shift rod- it works great... and YES I am going to secure it better than with 3 zip-ties
In the photo arrows point to the brake light switch and wires which go to the PC
4. connect the proper length of wire to reach your PC from the switch- it doesn't matter which color wire is which because all you need is continuity to activate the quick-shift.
5. find yourself the software to activate the quickshift function of the PC if it is needed...
Guys with a Quickshifter- chime in and help me finish this project!
