Quick Shifter

Anyone fitted an aftermarket quick shifter on a 1200 ie like the Healtech.

Re: Quick Shifter

Yep, Healtech to a K12S. They work well and have the bonus of being able to adjust with an app on your phone.
If there is a disadvantage, there's no popping on the gear changes, as the electrical link is to the fuel injectors.
Healtech say to remove the airbox to connect the wiring to the injector's, my bike needed a valve clearance check, so did it while the radiator was out.
I also changed the bottom ball joint on the shift rod, for a rose joint that could take a through bolt, then loctite'd the nut on, as its easy to crush the sensor on the shift linkage (by over tightening) Read instructions carefully.

Pretty sure your only other alternative is fitting a power commander & their shift kit that goes with it. Something I wasn't interested in.

Re: Quick Shifter

Thanks for that particularly the rose joint,i’ve A mate who recently fitted one to the latest Tiger Sport(HT)and he’s really pleased with it and i’ve Been spoiled with my X/R,the reason I asked think the Healtech is bargain basement compared to the HM QS but so long as it works on the K that’ll do for me.

Re: Quick Shifter

Hi I had a K1200R and fitted a Cordona PQ8 bundle to it, it worked really well and allowed you to adjust the timing on the shifts etc Most aftermarket shifters only work on a fuel cut but the PQ8 works on fuel and ignition giving a smoother cut.


It's worth a look.

Finally got around to fitting it!! Thanks for the heads up with the rose joint might need a little fine tuning but way too cold for that
