Well, I know what I am having my wife buy me for my birthday in September... One of these looks like just the ticket...

Anyone have a PDF copy of the TL QS manual they can share?
You need a serial number to download from their website...

Well - install on this was a piece of cake. Electrically - plug and play as advertised. Mechanically - Not quite a drop in with my CNC rearsets as it was about 3-4mm longer as supplied. I simply removed one of the red spacers and lopped off the same amount of the underlying male shaft - 5 minutes to do. Pic attached of the final installed assembly and spacer removed. This would probably be drop in with OEM rearsets as advertised by TL.

Very quick ride - 2 miles. Works as you would expect. It's a bit quicker on the engine cut as you'd expect from a strain gauge vs a micro-switch. Crisper is the best word to describe my thoughts. This WILL require you to be quicker on the shift itself as well! If you are at all lazy with the gear change this will show it. I got a couple false neatrals in the 4-5 up shift which I have never gotten before - but that's me and not the sensor. I'll end up lowering my shift lever a bit more and get the lion's share of that I believe - it's about 1/8" higher than it used to be. It's a big deal to me with short(ish) feet. I don't have the leverage all you normal sized people do :-)

On another note - all this fiddling with the sensor, the linkage, shift action in general has allowed me to put my finger on what I believe is why I am struggling to shift this bike as quickly/smoothly as my RC51 with HM quickshifter. It's the strength of the springs on the shift shaft. The other bike has Factory Pro hardware inside. The effort required to move the lever up is, by my calibrated hand, roughly twice what the other is - which is as seamless as a mechanical shifter gets. So now off to order that to compliment the better shift sensor I now have installed.

Just as an aside to this thread, I had been having more trouble shifting, rougher, clunkier shifts, etc. I had my dealership look at the problem and they replaced the switch (which is a piece of cr@.p) and then the mechanic took out a tiny bit of preload and BINGO!!! Back to completely perfect shifting again on both upshift and downshift.

I'm still going to replace the stock with the Translogic, due to the POS OEM switch, but anyone who is having shifter issues should make sure their mechanic is aware of these issues.

The dealership adjusted the preload on the shifter. What does that mean? Sounds like something I may want to do..

The mechanic told me there's a spring in part of the quickshifter assembly and he took some preload out of that, i.e. lessened the spring tension...

80 - any idea what it means to "remove some preload? Is this internal to the shift shaft and associated spring or external on the sensor and assembly?

I just looked at the parts diagram on the Ducati of Omaha site and there seems to be a couple of springs that he could be talking about. See below

Maybe 16, or 20?

Hmmm. There is also the gearbox drum flange assembly which is where the Factory Pro mod is. I believe the spring rate on the mod is different. There does not seem to be anything here that is "load adjustable" is there any adjustability in the micro switch assembly itself?
