Q Is fit­ting a quick­shifter a pain in the Rs ?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Can the quick­shifter/au­to­blip­per that fea­tures on the new GSX-R1000R be fit­ted to the stock bike or does it only fit the R-model? I think the stock bike would be good enough for me but I would re­ally like to have the quick­shifter for track­days. Nigel Lort, email An­swered by Mark Hale, A Street­bike If you want to fit the R quick­shifter on a stan­dard GSX-R1000AL7, you need to buy a new wiring loom and ECU as well as the gear shift as­sem­bly. Pro­hibitively ex­pen­sive un­less you’ve got a spare £1320 for the parts and you’re will­ing to pay a Suzuki deal­er­ship about £700 to swap the loom etc and re­pro­gramme the ECU to the bike.
