I highly doubt you'll find anything for the 51. Since our throttles are mechanically coupled to the throttle cables an auto blip system would move the throttle tube in your hand.

So far as I know these can only be applied to ride by wire systems.

Indeed. I'm pretty sure the Upshift Only situation is because only momentary ignition kill can be used with our old piggies.

I have a Starlane on one my Beemers (R1150S) and it cuts the injection or the ignition, depending on how you wire it, for up and down shifts. Works like a champ.

Is this used alongside a slipper clutch? I can't imagine a quick downshift with a sudden jarring of the revs picking up like that.

It also can't be good for the transmission as both the engine and output shaft are mechanically coupled so the engagement dogs are tasked with instantaneously accelerating the engine to suit the new ratio.

Imo without an auto blip a Qs for downshift is a death sentence for the gearbox

Just installed a HealTech quickshifter on my Hyperstrada and it works up and down. I does have a slipper clutch and I think it works better on this bike than the Beemer on downshifts. You don't have to blip but it certainly helps.

As for the gear box life, too early for me to say. I can tell you that Ducati upgraded their gear boxes for their new sport 821 Pani's to deal better with expected quickshifter installation, so there's probably something to your concern. So we'll see. If I break it, I'll fix it...
