Are you cutting the ignition or the fuel with the quickshifter?

the problem is 3rd gear. and really only on track flogged setups.

make sure the hm is compatible with CDI ignitions before purchasing.

Eek! Is this more of a problem under track conditions, or merely confined to the gears 'meshing' under QS conditions? My knowledge isn't high of these bikes having only recently purchased my SP-2.

I'm thinking of using a Starlane quickshifter which can be tuned for interrupt time, wondering it that would help with the shifting....

Unfortunatelly i read about it at various RC51-VTR pages...They all say that the problem is in 2nd and 3rd gear.
I think 300€ wasn't money well spent after all.
