  1. Was chatting to the guy with underseat termis on his 1199 and he reckoned, with baffles, passed out ok easy. Without 106 so not miles off.

  2. I did notice that he wasn't popping massive wheelies on the run down to agostini and just assumed it was because the photographer moved :joy:

    Well if they're cracked then no better justification for the temis :D

  7. Is the HM shifter the oem replacement? Can you let me know how it is? I'm sick of the garbage stock one that tries to kill me on a regular basis on the V2. Already contacted HM and as long as the connector is 3 pin I can order one, but it'd be good to get some feedback from users.

  8. Yes it is. Plug and play. Absolutely fine.

    I must be honest my OE quick shifter was one of the few that behaved itself. But due to all the negative feedback I changed it anyway. I didn’t want to risk the OE going tits up on day one on a European gig. I carry the OE as a spare. I did have bother with the gear position sensor failure.

  9. exactly as ‘Mary’ described :) direct replacement, plug and play.

    My OEM shifter worked ok, struggled now and then but nothing major. I’ll let you know how they compare once I’ve been out. :upyeah:

  10. Had a little run out at Cadwell yesterday on the V4 with track panels and a titanium Spark.it force 3/4 system. the exhaust makes a beautiful pop on upshifts and unbaffled is suppose to be 102db…. The noise tester said it was 104db so might need to get a baffle sourced.

    Had a couple of issues with clearance with the exhaust rubbing on the tyre and fortunately Dave ‘Mupo’ Croft was riding around on his V4R so managed to pick his brains about the bike set up.

    @JamieW the HM shifter is noticeably smoother both up and down that the stock switch. I wasn’t expecting to feel / notice any difference but I can honestly say the HM part is super smooth and a noticeable improvement over stock in my opinion.

    I’ve popped a session on YouTube for anyone wanting to know what it’s like trying to wrestle a V4 around Cadwell Park :)

     
  11. Not too shabby at all that! Love a bit of Cadwell, although I can't quite reach the times you do yet. Thanks for the update on the HM shifter although I was impatient and got a translogic one (arrived today) so hoping to see how if goes at Croft in a few weeks.

  12. I’m sure the translogic will be very similar to the HM. I think any aftermarket shifter will be smoother than the mechanical switch in the OEM shifter.
     
  13. Flying mate!!! :bomb::bomb::bomb::splat:

  14. I just took it up and down the road to try it and seems good so far. Less clunky for sure. Track will be the real test.
