I run mps..never missed a shift..I didn't buy the one with auto shift but use the horn button...but with a relay you can go auto off the shift light


What do you mean a R1 is only for the curves?

Ignore the filthy bike.


Shifter runs off nitrous, blue thing is the low pressure adapter.












The split loom is because the bracket almost touches the frame and I didn't want it to scratch.

Black box is the solenoid that allows the pressure to run through the ram.

I have a 2.5lb nitrous bottle on the bike already and I didnt want to run co2 or air.. just use the same nitrous bottle since it's regulated down to 150psi at the blue pressure adapter.

It's uses almost no nitrous to shift, and keeps the setup simple.
