    Alternative Quick shifter

    I'm looking at getting an aftermarket one. The standard one seems to get difficult to engage after lunch on a track day. Mainly dowwnshifts in particular.
    I have to make two or three attemps and its hurting the top of my foot now.
    I know the obvious alpha one, but I don't want to shell out if it just does the same.

    I have the alpha Racing one fitted and it’s extremely good and much better than the OEM unit. You may also want to consider HM.

    Did you ever use the standard to compare. Or do they really do a better job ?
    Surprised the alpha is slightly cheaper.

    Btw, the stock shifter connection (the splined connector at the top) needs to be horizontal for easiest actuation. Riding bananamans with it set out of horizontal it made the shifts much harder.

    Ill look into that, though is set as it left the factory.
    Don't think its a set up issue as it works fine at first. Just seems to not work as slick as the day goes on. on

    Hmmm so the HM has strain gauge tech and the Alpha reads to be a spring like the standard one. Also HM is adjustable for sensitivity whereas no mention of that with the Alpha.

    I’m really happy with my alpha Racing one. Whilst you can’t adjust the sensitivity like the HM unit it’s still very good and a significant improvement over OEM. Both are commonly seen on Superbike and Superstock specification race bikes so you can’t really go wrong with either.
