Try to contact Translogic.
I used their quickshifter on my Speed Triple R with good results. With a triple engine, back then it was very hard to find a good quality shifter and the Translogic was about the only one I could find.
I’m not sure I would put one on my Bobber and so far haven’t felt the need. But it would be nice to hear your feedback if you do go ahead and install one.

You may also want to ask HealTech. I used this on my GSXR600 and my 1000 also. Worked Great!!

FYI, The Translogic TLS-QS3-TRI-LSPUSH model cost me 330GBP plus VAT back in 2014. I´m sure they have better (i.e less crude) systems now.

Feel free to PM me if you want the PDF install pages and i´ll email them to you (luckily i still have them in my inbox :nerd:).
Translogic install was not hard on the S3R, as far as i can remember.

You are superstar. Thank you for the rapid response! I like the look of iOS one and have just sent them an email.

Yes, I confess a Quickshifter may seem a bit odd on a Bobber, but with my clip on bars etc. I have set up more sporty rather than cruising. I simply love doing full throttle short shifting without the clutch (but don’t always get it right! Lol)

If I pull the trigger, I’ll keep you posted.

Much appreciated, Steve.

I certainly don’t think it’s “wrong” on the Bobber. A lot of people think quickshifters are for track only bikes. But nothing could be further from the truth.
I have found that Shifters make road riding ALOT more fun and can totally understand why you want one on the Bobber. I use mine day in day out on my GSA at all loads and all RPM. Works a treat both up and down the gears.

Good luck with your search and I look forward to hearing your updates. Your review may yet convince me that my Bobber needs a quickshifter too...>:)

The non technical version (just the way I like :)) : The ability to change gear without the need to use the clutch.
Usually upshifts, but sometimes downshifts too, depending on the make/model of the shifter.

Hi. It’s a sensor that one fits to your gear change linkage that senses when you are changing gear and then automatically kills the engine for a split second so that you can change gear without having to use the clutch (much quickly)

Thank you for the explanation. What is the fun in that? Might as well have an automatic transmission.

I think the Thruxton has a quickshifter, and that might fit the Bobber. Many Bonneville accessories are interchangeable.

Your bike is beautiful, I'd puta QS on it for sure. Chico, you can still use the clutch in the normal way, but if you're doing spirited riding, the QS cuts the ignition while the gearchange is in progress so you make the fastest possible switch. They are totally cool.

Great idea Pasta.
The Thruxton (AFAIK) doesn’t come with an OEM quickshifter. But the aftermarket one is made by HealTech. So a quick message to them will reveal if it’s interchangeable. I can’t see why it wouldn’t be.

Looking forward to more posts about this subject :)

Chico - shifters are great fun and go totally unnoticed if you choose not to use it (all functions remain the same). But when you do decide to use it, nothing is more fun than BANGING through the gears clutchlessy...

Gotta say, I love this idea on a Bobber. I have had some fun with sport bike challengers. I tend to get almost up the rev limiter and do WOT shifts when I am playing, but even that is slow compared to a 20 ms shift, and with a ramped power re-application after each shift, it would certainly save on tires.

But, where do you hide all that hardware?? :wink2:

Looks like Triumph dropped the own-brand QS for the Thruxton. The Triumph accessory part # is/was A9778024 Quickshifter Kit. I don't think it is actually available though
