Con - expensive

As Rob said, fun factor and cost are the major points here. What I also like is that it works straight from the box, with other makes you have to mess around with setting it all up and other nonsense, this is plug and play.

Since I had it, it worked great and it seem to work smoother with time, its got this "adaptive-shift-technology" which I think may help it learn to shift smoother? maybe, anyway never missed a shift with it. Some people complained on FB that Z900 gearbox gets loads of neutrals and the gears drop out, I had few miss shifts prior installing QS, but since I had it, none. I think these must have been rider errors due to lack of firm shifts.

Bottom line if you can afford it go for it, you wont regret it.

Thanks for the replies .. my concern are if it is bad for the gearboks in the long term, can I still use  the clutch if I ride in the city (slow riding) ... I will  not install it myself .. I will let a kawasaki mechanic do the install (peace of mind, so I know  I did not ### anything up myself)

Frontline has one since a long time and he didnt report any problem. You still need to check your adjustment even with a qs.

You can use your clutch like you normally do right now if you wish

I've had a QS since almost new (now have 31k) and its never been a cause for concern. I will further add that I feel it makes my clutch pack last longer because they are always engaged (except for 1st gear). Besides, QS'ers are used in many bikes today from factory and its not like they are using any special transmission components for QS use. Except for the top of the line machines, its all the same parts.

While 1st to 2nd gear feels more like a jolt at lower RPM's, the rest of the gear changing with a QS is so smooth it can seem like voodoo.

For the record, I'm using the HealTech QS and would not hesitate to use again. Unless its an old classic, a QS is always going to be the 1st mod on any bike I have.

If I'm honest, I'm guilty of this too. Sometimes you aren't focused enough in the foot action and I've ghost neutral mine a few times. A nice firm foot lift...and maybe even hold a little upper pressure for a half second  :305:

Thanks for the response! ... My choise are between healtech and translogic .. translogic are a bit more  expensice but it may also be worth the extra cash to spend, who knows :) both brands seem to do the job

As of now I can see that the healtech qs seems to be more friendly when it comes to fiddle with the device.. setting up from a app on your phone vs needing to check green/yellow and red lights on translogic if you want or need to mess with the settings (even though translogic says that it should not be needed) I got a custom tune on my  ecu so it COULD be needed since Translogic qs is set up for a standard bike so as of now I am leaning towards Healtechs qs..

I've read only good things about Translogic. I've also heard you don't need to configure anything. I still prefer the HealTech because of the flexibility and invisible once installed.

The HealTech, Translogic, DynoJet and Annitori are 100% stand alone units. The ECU doesn't care or know if you have one installed.
