So do you need the fueling module as well as the qs/auto blipper kit? I'm trying to wrap my head around the install and all the connections required).

Yes you’ll need both, either EVO or RACING module and the Shift Assist kit. Shift Assist kit will not work on it’s own as it needs to plug into the EVO/RACING ECU.

This one is an interesting option:

https://www.ukracesupport.com/collections/triumph-street-triple-r-765-engine-parts/products/triumph-street-triple-765r-s-rs-2017-hm-auto-blipper?fbclid=IwAR2IVl_QRvHg-vBZGktBk2nvw9ijD_a9Jw7JvX2wDqGy5fdF1sQA9HGNcH4

Fitting guide.

First, remove the fuel tank.

This exposes the air box. Remove this completely.

Now you will see the throttle bodies and the throttle servo motor. Unplug the large connector connected to the servo motor. Plug our unit in to the servo motor and then plug the OEM connector back in to our unit.

You now have 4 other wires with connectors on our unit. One connects the Quickshifter sensor. One is for the COM port. One is for the *BUTTON and the last is for the *CAN connection

If you have the Lite version you only need to connect the Quickshifter sensor to the unit and you will need to have the COM port in an easily accessible location so you can connect to the unit for programming and for any future firmware updates.

If you have the Pro version you will also need to connect your button to the BUTTON plug and the CAN plug to the diagnostic port on your bike. Route the BUTTON wire to a convenient place and fix this to the location of choice. We recommend the handlebar.

Route the wires so they are not in danger of being trapped by any components when you put the bike back together.

Now connect the sensor to your shift rod. When routing this wire please make sure if you use cable ties that you do not over tighten them and damage the sensor wire.

Now re assemble the bike.

Open the PC software which is available for download on our website under downloads.

Connect the supplied USB lead to the COM plug and turn the ignition on to the bike.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CALIBRATE THE THROTTLE BEFORE YOU PROCEED. This only needs to be done once after install.
On the GENERAL tab click on “Start Throttle Calibration” A pop up window will open and say “Move throttle from min to max a few times AFTER clicking Okay”, open and close the throttle a few times all the way to the stop and back, 3 times should be enough.

Once you have done this, click on “End throttle calibration”

If you click on DASH in the top right of the program you will now see your throttle position displayed under TPS%. If you do not, repeat the Throttle Calibration Process again.

Sensor set up.

Shift direction. Firstly, we need to set the direction for up shifting.
Set this to C (compression) if when you are upshifting you are compressing (pushing) the sensor.
Set this to E if you are extending (pulling) the sensor when you are up shifting.

Sensitivity. You want this number to be as low as possible to give a nice positive shift. If you set this number too high (too sensitive) then the sensor will trigger the shifter/blip time before the gear physically begins to change. This could result in false neutrals. If this is set too low (not sensitive enough) then the gearbox will not be unloaded and therefore you will not be able to change gear.

We recommend starting at 65% and proceeding from here. The amount of mechanical force on different bikes and even different aftermarket rear sets will determine this so you may or may not need to alter this.

Lite Setup.

Shift Kill Time. Set this for the amount of time in ms you want to unload the gearbox for to allow the next gear to engage. We recommend starting with 62ms.

Blip Throttle %. Set this for the amount of throttle blip/opening you want for when you change down a gear. We recommend 40%

Blip time. Set this for the duration you want the throttle blip to last. We recommend starting at 60ms.

But it`s quite expensive £ 500 ex VAT + shipping...

Has anyone put a quickshifter on a Thruxton R?
Would you like to? I'm a new vendor-member on the site specialising in quickshifters, and this sounds like an excellent market opportunity. If you're interested in working with me as a research and test subject, I would supply all parts for free and you'd get to keep the final model.

Thoughts? :AUP

I’m interested, but I guess I’m on the wrong side of the world. Definitely interested in the product. I have one on a Street Triple and have had in the past. Would love one on the Thruxton (mainly upshift) and perhaps even more so on my Tiger 800 (up and down).

It is cheaper than the Rapid Bike version but remember the rapid bike option gives you a power commander type piece as well as the shifter so it really depends what you want. The HM looks good but I still think I will end up going the Rapid Bike route to have the tuning capability as well as the auto blipper.

Just ordered a Rapidbike EVO and the shift assist module last night. The auto blip downshift just sounds to good to not have in my life.
How did it go with the Rapid Bike EVO and Shift Assist? I am about to order one. In preparation I downloaded the install instructions for the Shift Assist and they say you need to change the shift rod. Is that true or can you reuse the OEM one? IFf you have to change it can you tell me which one you got and where from? Also do you think there is any value in ordering the Racing rather the the EVO fueling module (this is not a track only bike but I do track days a few times a year)

Has anyone tried this HM Quickshifter?
Buy HM Stand Alone Blipper Shift Online - Blipper Range | Plug and Play System | HM Quickshifter
Supposedly it comes with auto-blip for a much lower price than the Rapid Bike system.
I have, and it´s working good. Needed to do some tweaking in the software because the downloaded config file was not perfect. I got it to 98% to perfect just by playing around for 30 minutes or so. I have started a thread were I hope we who have the HM blipper can share our settings. But it seems to be a solid bit of kit.

I just got the HM blipper/shifter - Lite version. There is a cable on the loom labeled ECU. Where did you connect that?

There is a connector, in the rear under the pillion seat. It´s supposed to be on the left side under the seat "fairing". Mine was comming from the left side but for some reason it was tucked away under the middle section where the lock for the pillion seat is (does that make sense?) If you have trouble finding it, remove the plastic under seat fairing and also the "middle section" (the one that goes from left to right) and you will find it. It´s the only connector that will fit the HM ECU cable anyway... Don´t drop any screws, I did, and so the installation took me 4 times longer :-(.
Cheers!
