good video on how to do the technique. not sure how healthy it is for the transmission, but might be worth trying once .

Been upshifting like that for about 8 years now, ever since i heard of it. Same works for manual transmission cars. On a car your engine needs to dropdown to a specific rpm , for the gears to slip in position, but it just feels clunky and awkward.

A bunch people i know have a QS and try to convince me i should get one too. Like the guy in the video, i also think its useless (from a cost perspective) , unless you are riding on a track.

From now on, I'll refer people to this video instead of having a discusion about it, now thats a timesaver

i would like a quick shift only for the reason to be able to keep my left hand solidly on the handle bar during hard acceleration and shifting. just feels safer when i don’t have to let go of the handle bar to work the clutch lever at fast speeds. although with this technique that wouldn’t be an issue anymore. think the mt-10 quick shift system momentarily cuts ignition. automates the manual clutchless shift technique. do you think clutchless shifts are hard on the transmission? possibly the reason behind the fourth gear failures??

As the guy in the video says, i dont think it causes extra stress or wear on the geargbox.
But at slower speeds i still use the lever from 1st to 2nd. It tends to jolt forwards.
