I ordered the push type Quick Shifter with a F-M6xF-M6 tie rod. To mate up at the engine end I used a short M6 threaded rod (clockwise on one end and anti-clockwise on the other). I cut one section off each end of the tie rod to bring the whole assembly down to the length of the stock Gilles tie rod. For clearance I moved the rear attachment point of the spherical rod end down to the lower hole. The shifter is a tight fit but with some effort it came apart so I could access the adjuster holes. This move also makes for quicker shifting too (less movement). I’m also using two very thin (.030”) washers to space the shifter assembly out from the bike. This angles the rod in toward the bike a little more to add clearance. The short threaded rod is part# TR6-50, available here: https://www.midwestcontrol.com/catdisplay_short.php?pg=186
The picture also shows the stock Gilles rod for comparison.

thats for the great write up.

I just ordered those parts for my Giles Setup.

Shipping was rough for that 1 bolt but I guess it was worth it.

Are you very happy with this setup?

I have never had or known anyone whit a quickshifter setup.

Seems like it would be a great help.

Do you keep it on all the time or just for racing?

The way my Sato's are, I'm gonna have to get the pull type for GP shift. Regular shift is too close the the frame with my choosen rearset position. I'm also gonna have to put the trigger on the opposite side of the rod. I think it will hit my lever the way you have it.

OH FUCK!, you paid $9 just to ship a screw, are you crazy???

FYI, I red Locktited the threaded stud into the shift rod. It's been cold around here so I'm not going to install till this weekend. The mock-up worked and fit fine. I did go for a ride with the pivot point changed on the shifter and I love the quick action of the shifter now. I can't wait to try it, just lean over and slam gears. I think I read that a good setting for the Quickshifter is 55ms.

Hey Mike which Dynojet F-M6xF-M6 rod is it on this page. I only noticed one Female to female but I wanted to make sure because of the thread pitches and all.

Just got done with the first ride, no problems, flawless shifting. I set the PRM's at 9000 and the interrupt at 60ms. I'll probably reset to 55ms and drop the PRM's down to 8000 just so I can enjoy the shifting more often. I didn't even lay into it, just 10,000 RPM shifts and it just KICKS ASS!

mike - is that the adjustable lowering link setup on your bike?
Yes it is.
BTW the shifting is so positive and easy with the Q-shifter that I'm forgetting all about a GP style set-up.
I had some real fun yesterday, this is very addictave.
