For leg amputations – We have an extremely effective reliable button operated electric gear shifting system, just press the green button to change up through the gears press the red button to shift down, alternatively the Dualever can be set up to operate the clutch & front or rear brake or the front & rear brakes .
For arm amputations – Again our Dualever can be mounted on the left or right hand side of the handlebars, set up to operate the clutch and a brake or front & rear brakes. We also offer a unique system that enables you to change up and down the gears once on the move without using the clutch (see Club , & Expert systems). Very useful motorcycle adaptation developed over the last 12 years
Stiff or heavy clutch operation ? or virtually unable to use the clutch ??
A stiff or heavy clutch is a problem that Some bikers have this gives problems to disabled, elderly/ arthritic riders, but a quickshifter can help enormously by alleviating the majority of clutch use required. Once you are moving there’s no need to use the clutch for upshifts or downshifts; the Flatshifter Expert system allows smooth, consistent shifting without touching the clutch lever or even easing off the throttle. Much of the resistance is removed from the foot lever as well, allowing for shifts with a gentle nudge rather than a forceful kick. please call us to discuss further.
We also offer a hydraulic clutch with variable length /angled levers to make clutch operation lighter.
Would Clutch-less gear changes be Helpful to you ??
The Basic mechanics of a quickshifter system are really very simple: a small device installed in the gear linkage senses pressure on the shift pedal (or gear lever), the sensor sends a signal to the ECU to cut the power to the ignition coils, allowing the bike to be essentially “Turned off” for an instant while the next gear slides into place.
Quickshifters as they are more commonly known are also very usefull for motorcycle and trike riders who have problems operating a clutch lever, althoughthe Pro or Expert systems do not totally eliminate 100% of clutch use it does greatly reduce it, you will still need to operate the clutch as normal when selecting 1st gear and pulling away from stationary, and probably slow speed manoevering.
The Flatshifter Pro & Expert systems will enable you to change up & down through the gears once you are moving without using the clutch.
We are very happy to offer any help or advice we can, please contact us even if you have no intention of purchasing any products from us, that is not an issue, Flatshifter started out successfully producing top quality race winning quick-shifters / performance and ride-ability riders aids for motorcycle engined cars & motor sport teams, kit car manufacturers, motorcycle riders & racers for many years, and we were frequently being asked if our products would or could be adapted for Disabled Motorcycle Riders, Trike, & Kit Car owners at affordable price`s, so we have developed & modified our products were necessary to suit.
Having a disability need not be the end of your motorcycle riding.
Motor sport demands top quality reliable cost effective products, These requirements are even more essential for Disabled riders & drivers or who are physically impaired in some way.
All of our products include a full 12 months parts & labour warranty for your peace of mind.
Electric button operated gear changing
We also supply electric gear shifter/selector systems using handlebar mounted buttons, 3 different clutch-less up shift and clutch-less down gearshift systems (only available from us). The “Dualever” twin clutch / brake lever, and now a world 1st auto-clutch system this is not a centrifugal clutch that only works on low power motorcycles, fancy riding say a 300 bhp turbo Hayabusa no problem with our new auto-clutch system as our system actually operates the standard unmodified clutch fitted to your bike, see the separate Auto – clutch page for more information.

The objective in racing or performance driving applications is that it allows the rider or driver to hold the throttle wide open without ever easing off to shift, saving a lot of time and effort thus enabling the maximum, uninterrupted forward drive
