Been surfing this forum for a few months since a link to RORZ's build was sent from a work mate.
So after wasting an enormous amount of my employers time I thought I would introduce myself via a thread.
I have always been into cars and bikes, Jap,Euro,Aussie whatever with the exception of Harley's. Just don't get them. Now I'm also into Hakosuka's thanks to you know who.
My own car history is uninspiring bordering on embarrassing so we will go straight to the bikes.
Started with one of these
Then the MV in the same pic
Then one of these
Then the Gsxr which I have done about 12 trackdays on. Its standard except for the pipe and shorty levers.
Since I have been doing more trackdays I thought a quickshifter would be a handy mod. So I ordered one of these.
I looked at a few including dynojet, bazzaz and some dodgy no-name ones. The selling features of the Annitori were the strain guage type switch with no moving parts, ability to use in race pattern or street, the plug and play with no loom splicing and the fact it is stand alone as I don't need mixture control or TC or any of that other stuff.
So started with removing the tank and seat
Removed the air box and located the coils which are individual for each cylinder on these things.
The above pic shows the coil loom already connected. They come with a male and female plug that go in line with the plug you remove to the coil.Easy.
Next, ran the sensitivity indicator and ground lead to the under seat area. Also ran the strain guage to the shift position.
I measured the shift rod position as I like it just where it is.
Connect coil loom to strain guage and indicator loom via plugs.
Get some help if you need to
Connect ground to battery
Tidy up and cable tie all cables securely as the loom runs past throttle actuator, and leave some slack on the strain guage for shifting.
Set up is pretty simple. You turn the ignition on and off three times and the fourth time you leave the key on.
The three leds on the indicator now under my seat scroll through from the green one to the amber to the red. When the desired led/sensitivity is illuminated you turn the key off and it is maintained in that setting until you go through the set up procedure again.
This adjustment is for strain guage sensitivity only the ignition cut time stays the same. Annitori won't tell you what the cut time is but the magic number seems to be around the 60 millisecond mark.
Air box, tank and seat back on and we are good to go.
I havn't had a chance to test ride yet but a quick check shifting gears at idle showed a definite ignition cut.
So hope to test in the next couple of days.
Then some more of this.
