Check it out if you want a little step by step video :)

I ordered one yesterday on ebay. They had three GYTR shifters in stock. Guess since they are now standard on the FZ10 I might as well jump on the band wagon. Should get it by friday.

Great install video.

Often people are surprised to find out how easy modifications like this are to do. Or at least easier than many other things you can be doing.

yeah installed mine a while back and love it.
getting it to activate was a bitch but once you get past that you are good to go.

Mine took the stated 10 seconds to activate, and now it's bitch-in! It feels smoother shifting even when not using the quick shift feature.

I ordered a OEM Yamaha one from 2wheelpros for 156.00 shipped. Is there any advantage to going with a different brand? I know some may have options down the road to add a downshift blip but I thought those were relatively pricey.

I installed my QS today after work. Funny thing though, my QS read out is already showing on my dash. I think it's been like that since the 2wheeldynoworks reflash. So I did the ten second activation any way but it didn't do any thing. Of course it started to rain out after I was done so I'll try it out tomorrow.

Question for all of you that have the quick shifter on your FZ-10 or a previous bike. Many bikes now come with the QS standard but yet I read articles of people that swear they damaged their transmission because of them. This doesn't make sense to me if many OEM options exist for this.

Many new bikes now come standard with them.

I have one on order, backordered until 7-14. I do as well have the Yamaha extended warranty on my FZ so I am wondering if any potential problem down the road would be in jeopardy if I install one even though the bike is definitely set up from the factory for one to be added. I'm probably just being paranoid but that's a result of being so old. :)

Well all I can say about my QS is,COOL. Headed to the gym this morning. Best part of the QS is shifting fast off the line. Lovin it.

How do you find the tires to be off the line? See yourself upgrading down the road? Noticed there's an increasing amount of riders swapping tires in this segment, especially when they've gone your direction.

I got 1,100 miles on the S21's. Love them. But might try something else when there wear out that might last a bit longer since I don't use the last 3/8" on the rear sides,lol.

I decided to cancel my order. There has just been too many instances of articles I've read that changed my mind. Many R-1 people and many others (Kawasaki, Suzuki) stating that the QS was responsible for issues even though it is supported by the factory. I guess your MMV but I just don't want to take a warranty chance that anything gets denied because of it.

I am disappointed in one way since I thought it would be nice to try but truthfully I'm not a track or strip rider anymore so I guess the benefits really don't apply to me anyway. Time to buy a nice bottle of Champagne for the Wife.

Since I installed mine this past weekend I can honestly say I still use the clutch lever at least 75% of the time. But do use the QS feature when rapidly going up into the gears above 6,000 rpm. It's pretty smooth shifting and flawless . I figure its there when I want to use it.But I can understand your concern. I just won't abuse mine.

I decided to go ahead and get one. This has really been a back and forth decision for me but I talked to some other people and they made a good argument for one and I also was told from the dealer that the only time a warranty claim would be denied would be if they could prove that a modification caused the problem/failure.

I also think I will be more like you and just use it under specific circumstances so I as well will not be abusive to it. I just don't believe it would be that harmful if so many bikes come standard with them now.

By the way if anyone is in the market for one Cucamonga Yamaha sells them for 133.00 free shipping. The link for them is:

I just picked mine up yesterday, but haven't had a chance to install it yet. Darn responsibilities always get in the way of all the fun...

I don't plan on using it every time I ride, more for the spirited rides or when the itch of madness comes.

It's amazing you all have been able to pick one up fairly quick. They always have been on back order every place I've checked. I have to hold out now until the first week of August so far. The install is going to be a breeze though as long as they send the right part.

I ordered mine when I purchased the bike about 6 weeks ago. They quoted a 4 week back order... and underestimated it by 2 weeks.

A few thoughts:

1. any RPM over about 3k, it will work well
2. any RPM you shift, DO NOT back off throttle one bit(not as smooth)
3. if using clutch, occasional stutter will occur if your timing of clutch/shifting is not perfect
4. absolutely intoxicating to exit a corner, front end lifting, and just click, click, :surprise:
