You can have a look at the fitting instructions downloadable from their site, but only if you've bought one first, as they require the serial number :

http://www.translogicuk.com/manuals.php

The only thing I (personally) am not happy with, is that top anchorage to one of the case screws. They're only meant to be done up to 10Nm (7.38 Ft/lbs) and the force needed to operate the gear lever must be considerable, especially as the operating rod pulls/pushes so close to the lever pivot point.

Hi Forchetto, as you mentioned about the area and placement of the QS, i totally agreed, every thing needs to be taken into account when we put something new on, especially when the stuff doesnt made for the machine in the first place.

Would you reckon that he use one of those Speed triple QS in this modification? I would like to know which one he use.

Perhaps i should email Translogic to get some info

happy riding

Another "why bother' product for me.

A QS on my R?

I prefer to just briefly close the throttle as usual.

But I woud like to see it in action on a WOT 1/4 run.

I agree with Why Bother reply, no offense to product. I had the QS on my BMW K13S and it was nice. I love my TTR but with 75 less horses not necessary. Iíve found that with proper preloading and just a slightly less throttle the TTR up shift is smooth and precise. Especially in the upper rpm range.

I have to say (type), that when I had the Triumph Quick-Shifter on my Daytona 675, it did make just regular rides even that much more fun... I really liked it. There are a comical amount of traffic lights where I live, so this made it more fun & enjoyable when having to re-climb up the gears every 300 yards, 30 times a day. It was nice that when actually using the clutch lever, the Quickshifter is automatically disengaged as if it weren't even installed. Also that one could use the QS at any rpm, rather than only wide open, as some other companies claim for theirs.

I planned on that being one of the first items to buy when I initially left the deposit down on my Thruxton R... The Triumph accessory part # is/was A9778024 Quickshifter Kit.

Triumph really hurt my feelings when they dangled it in front of me, and then took it away like that. What a bunch of big jerks... I get their reasoning for never releasing the "Race Parts". But this isn't one of those, so it was always a kick to the twig & berries to me.

Dukes of Hazzard Big-Wheel -> Redline PL-20 -> Ninja ZX-6R -> CBR F4i -> R6 Raven -> Monster S2R Dark -> Daytona 675 -> Speed Triple -> Street Triple R -> Thruxton R

I ask Translogic about mounting Intellishift on Thruxton 1200 R:

Quote:
[...]Although not listed we would be able to supply QuickShifters for this bike. The Thruxton would be plug and play,[...]
I think wiring will be plug and play, but mouting the shifter required this modification (see enclosed)

Also, HealTech Easy (iQSE-1 + QSH-P2T) can be mounted on Thruxton 1200R, but havent seen anyone with it.

I always welcome a new gadget, I expect it would help me at the drag strip, but the biggest area you can improve on at the strip in timing the light, launching and making sure you don't hit the Rev limiter or miss a gear. This piece would probably especially helpful on the Thruxton R where there is little time between first and second before hitting the Rev limiter. I have link of a quarter mile run on my R without a quick shifter, but I did have the bike geared high (37T) on rear in my defense.

I may be wrong but isn't that Q'S mechanism "out of the loop" from the gear changing forces?

I d say it's another "don't knock it 'til you've tried it product. I have one on my bike and wouldn't want to be without now, sounds like an F1 car up through the gears. If only I'd waited a year I'd have got Q'S up and down.
OK that's an IL4, may not be the same on twin. One thing which worries me is that I thought Triumph were going to supply a Q'S for the Thruxton? Makes you wonder, if they ditched it can someone else really do better? With long term reliability?
