Since fitting the Flatshifter blip it has made downshifts so much easier to the extent now that you just take it for granted .once we set it up we have not had to touch it again.
hopefully we can carry on from last year & get some more really good results again

This is my first drive with Flatshifter expert, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0kic2NnaQwJust did my first full track day with a functional Flatshifter installed. It worked absolutely flawlessly! Up shifts under full throttle felt like a really positive automatic with no lift required at all. The downshifts were the real surprise as they were effortless and smooth. The shifts are so quick that there is little worry about unsettling the car, even in turns. All in all, I was really impressed. It was fun to use, easy to install, and not all that expensive compared to other modifications.
The team at Flatshifter are passionate about designing and building quickshifter systems for over 12 years, we have between us competed in motorcycle racing, drag racing, F750 race cars, karting, as well as bike engined single seat racing.
In Y2K we had been distributing quickshifters for only motorcycle engines (The usual up shift only type) for about two years and had started receiving customer inquiries about the possibility of clutchless down gear shift system
As the only down-shifters available then were either crude fixed blip systems or high end systems used in F1, touring cars and world rally cars, we set out to develop our own unique system.
Our aim was to produce a system that was reliable, affordable, simple to adjust, versatile, low maintenance and worked at all engine and road speeds. It also needed to have an over-rev inhibitor to prevent engine damage caused by the vehicle pushing the engine through the rev limiter by making too many downshifts too quickly.
We tried many different methods which included electric solenoids and motors which all proved to be slow, bulky, unreliable or difficult to control.
Eventually we came up with the idea of using engine manifold vacuum pressure to power and automatically regulate the engine throttle blip required for reliable downshifting.
A patent was applied for and subsequently granted.
We then started manufacturing our own up and down clutchless gear shifting system which proved extremely popular with bike-engined kit-car and sequentially equipped race car owners who were unfamiliar with sequential gearboxes and many owners found them easy to break through bad downshifting.
The system has been continuously refined over the years with the use of our own vacuum actuator, and control valves and has proved to be extremely reliable with several thousand units in regular daily use on motorcycles race cars and just about everything fitted with a sequential gearbox..
We have consistently carried out further developments to produce an electric solenoid button or paddle operated gear selector system that would seamlessly integrate with our clutchless gear shift kits that would enable effortless reliable gear shifting up and down the gearbox any sequential gearbox that is not just motorcycle engines but Quaife, Elite, Sadev etc sequentials bolted to V12 V10 V8 engines etc.
Flatshifter has yet another 2 new products introduced in 2013 designed to improve the somewhat clunky standard gear selection on most motorcycle gearbox’s this product also greatly reduces missed shifts /false neutrals take a look at the Flatshifter Slik-shift kit.
We are testing a totally new product on our Suzuki Fireblade, which will be very useful for racers and disabled motorcycle riders we believe a world 1st a total no input clutch operation system imagine a twist and go scooter ie start your Hayabusa or blackbird etc engine put into gear accelerate away change gear, nothing to press switch on etc. will work on all motorcycle engines and possibly anything else with a sequential gearbox after further development.
