    If it’s anything like the 2017 factory fitted option it will be lovely. Both my XR and 1250 quick shifts are nothing like!

    My Adv has it, hence asking. I thought it was a gimmick when I first got the GSA thinking I’d never use it, love the blip down the box and the effortless upshifts

    Found this also, so I reckon it is worth asking BMW, as at least you know the price of parts.

    You can fit an aftermarket ‘quickshifter’ to just about any motorcycle, they being only a method to kill the ignition momentarily when they ‘sense’ that a new gear is engaged. Some are easier to fit and use than others and their method of ‘sensing’ the gear change can vary but, in general, they are all pretty similar, not least as they all do the same job.

    I had it fitted to my base model 19 plate - £395.

    Not sure, but I think it is only for 2017 onwards

    This sounds like a reasonable price, I'm not sure if I'd part with £500/600 on a bike though, I don't think you would ever see the money back, so unless it's going to do a quite a few thousand miles and be kept for a few years I'd think hard about it?

    It works really well on the K16, especially the down change when you are going down through the gearbox entering roundabouts etc.

    It’s one of my favourite gadgets, along with Hill Hold, which I argued was pointless until I first had it.
