I own an 08 versy with 32k on it. When im upshifting, the RPM's like to jump 1k for a split second before coming down. This happens when i change a gear when the engine is running at say 7500+RPM. Anything below 6000 rpm, the bike shifts fine. Is the clutch slipping or am I doing something wrong?
The clutch cable and chain are fine as far as adjustments are concerned.
What if you only ride flat out..lets say 50% of the time? still need a quickshift? I like the slipper clutch option if you're going to ride flat out all of the time w/ the quickshifter of course...I believe there's a thread on the slipper around here somewhere...
A quickshift allows for clutchless shifting at full throttle acceleration.
Healtech Quickshift allows for full and also partial throttle acceleration.
check out the videos on the page I linked above. there is a video of Versys 1000 on a dyno demonstrating it.
If you are riding like in you initial video, then you need to learn your clutch lever action and shift with partial clutch pulls while loading up the gear lever by lifting your toes, a quick partial pull of the clutch and the gear will slip in.
It is all in the timing of unloading the engine from the gearbox... just like what a quickshift does by electronically detecting a shift and momentarily interrupting the ignition.
