HELP with DJ QS not working

the unit is only 4 months old, and unless its a fluke, I have dicked something up.
I adjusted my rearsets up and back to the highest point of adjustment for a upcoming track day. since I moved it, the qs wont engage. its gp style, and that's the correct unit for my shift pattern. (been on since april with no problems)
I NEVER NEVER had a problem until I moved the rearsets back and up. now if I mess with the adjustment, then ride it, it will shift/engage like its supposed to. I let it sit for 5 days, hopped on it 10min ago and it doesn't work again.

1- do I have it adusted wrong
2- kill time is at 60ms, used to be at 45 until this problem started
3- connection problem?

can you guys think of anything else, and do you want a picure.

thanks in advance.

ps--track day is Saturday, I GOTTA sort this out lol

I would pull the connector and check it with a multimeter.

Check the switch with a meter to see if it's working. If the switch is working properly that's one thing eliminated. Make sure your linkage is 90deg on the shift shaft as well. I don't know much about the stand alone units.

Wow I just can't type fast enough.

x3 for checking the switch function.

Take a multimeter and put it in resistance.

You should be able to go to the screw terminals on the PCV and leave everything connected. Orientation isn't important as you're only measuring the function of the switch.

You should get an open and no reading (infinite resistance) with no pressure on the linkage; when you put pressure to the linkage, it should close giving you a resistance reading of less than 1 ohm.

the sensor is reading on the ohm meter

Then either its a positioning problem with the shift rod, knuckle, rear sets... or a configuration problem with the DJ software.

Try playing with the positioning of the linkage by loosening/tightening the shift rods to make sure the knuckle and the shift rod/sensor is at a 90* angle.

If that doesn't work, then try double checking your settings within the DJ software.

ok

before I posted, ive switched rods twice, moved the knuckle everywhere possible for engagement.
the washers are behind the heim joint because when the shifter is depressed it will hit the side of the qs

so this is the only configuration ive been able to come up with where it will shift without resistance, and not hit the qs sensor


UGH

lmk
and thanks for the fast responses

The bike isn't hard to shift like that? Your knuckle should be 90deg off the shift shaft for the smoothest shifting.

I'd double check the software.

Hrm... I know I had a hell of a time initially getting mine configured but once I did it was solid. Also had to play with the kill time. Just odd how it would stop working.

One thing I noticed is your linkage. Shouldn't it be pointed the opposite direction (up) if you're in a GP shift pattern?

Here is how I had my DJ setup before I sold it and switched out for a standalone ignition kill QS.

Two things.

That is a bad angle for your shift knuckle. I would get a shorter rod. I would also try to flip the sensor so it's not hitting the shifter

I'm assuming your sensor is a pull sensor. I wonder if your shifter is putting pressure on your sensor when shifting and not allowing it to activate at the right time.
