We have an extremely effective reliable button-operated electric gear-shift system, (‘Flatshifter Max’) just press the green button to change up through the gears press the red button to shift down, alternatively, the ‘Dual-Lever’ twin lever system, can be set up to operate with 1 hand the clutch & front brakes or the front and rear brakes.
Again our ‘Dual-Lever’ system 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/Heavy clutch operation, or virtually unable to use the clutch?
A stiff or heavy clutch, is a problem that some motorcycle riders, especially disabled/elderly/ arthritic riders. A ‘quick-shifter’ can help enormously, by alleviating the majority of clutch use required. Once you are moving, there’s no need to use the clutch for up or down-shifts. 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 too, allowing for shifts with a gentle nudge, rather than a forceful kick. Please call us for more info.
We also offer a hydraulic clutch with variable length/angled levers to make clutch operation much lighter to operate, this clutch lever matches the Dual-Lever in design.
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.
‘Quick-shifters’, as they are more commonly known, are very useful for motorcycle and trike riders who have problems operating a clutch lever, as well as for motorsport use. Although the Expert system does not totally eliminate 100% of clutch use, it does greatly reduce it. You would still need to operate the clutch as normal when selecting 1st gear and pulling away from stationary, and probably slow speed manoeuvring, other than that enjoy the freedom of the road again with virtually no clutch use.
The Flatshifter Expert system 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 & motorsport 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 prices, so we have developed & modified our products were necessary to suit.
Having a disability need not mean the end of your motorcycle riding
Motorsport 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.
This kit is designed to accommodate riders with a disability preventing changing gear with the foot, the Flatshifter Max kit has push-button gear change, and is the ideal solution for everyone.
It’s suitable for virtually any kind of riding, whether you are looking for a fast change for racing or track days, or comfort and convenience when cruising country lanes.
Its simple to use, you just press the red button placed on the handlebars for up and the green button for down, clutch use is still required.
It is that simple. If you also fit the Expert system, when you press the button to change gear, it will also operate the clutch-less system via button-operated gear-shifts, without using the clutch.

A stiff or heavy clutch is a problem that Some bikes have this gives problems to many riders disabled or elderly motorcycle riders, but a quick shifter can help enormously by alleviating the majority of clutch use required. Once you are moving there’s no need to use the clutch for up-shifts or downshifts; the Flatshifter system allows smooth, consistent shifting without touching the clutch lever or even easing off the throttle. Much of the resistance is also removed from the foot lever, allowing for shifts with a gentle nudge, rather than a forceful kick.
The Basic mechanics of a quick shifter 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. 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
