Q:  I have seen other quick shifters for sale but none with your downshift auto throttle blip system. How does it work?
A:  By operating the gear lever in the downshifting direction, the patented throttle blip system allows a smooth downshift to be made at all speeds without the need for a slipper clutch. The downshift actuator spindle replaces the original engine idle adjuster screw and provides a precise throttle-blip of the correct level to ensure a smooth downshift. (unloading the pressure on the meshing gears allowing a gear shift) The system has a built-in inhibitor which helps prevent rear wheel locking or engine damage caused by shifting down at too high engine speed.
