2wheelpros.com has them for 156.00 free shipping, Yamaha OEM.

northsouth I just installed one on my bike. It works, but it seems to be a little clunky to operate. It is installed correctly as per the instructions so maybe I just need to get used to how it works. Needs more pressure to shift than I expected. Never had a bike with a quick shifter before, it is fun!

DaveInWoodland I decided to wait on the QS, they are out of stock pretty everywhere until June 5th anyway. I'm sure eventually I'll do one I just don't want to commit to it at the moment for some reason.

I have seen many people that buy new FZ's and the dealer has added a quick shift to it. Normally they will let you in on it since for many of us have never owned a bike with one.

But I haven't personally done it so I cannot say for certain.

If 'QS' is illuminated on the dash does that mean the QuickShifter is installed on the bike?
