Prices vary with different Makes, Models, Bar Size.
We are working on several other install kits and may have some drawings that we can supply to help your installer to fabricate fittings to go from the actuator shaft to connect it to the present shifter arm.
Orders can be combined to save some shipping costs.
There is a one year warranty on the electrical parts for the Kliktronic Electric Shifter. Now that is out of the way, let’s talk about the shifter.
Our shifter will fit just about any motorcycle and has the power to shift even heavy transmissions like Harley-Davidson and Moto Guzzi.
I have had my first Kliktronic since 9-2006. I love the reliability and it has allowed me the freedom to feel the wind in my face. There are no words to express how I feel when I’m riding. But, you know that, don’t you?
I was very impressed when I met Tim that May of 2007. He was involved in a bike accident that resulted in the loss of his left leg above the knee. This is his story. “I have had one on my ‘98 Harley=Davidson FLHTC since May of 2001 and have put over 44,000 miles on it with a few minor adjustments or maintenance.
I also have an 1800 Gold Wing Trike and that shifter has 26000 miles on it. These two shifters have never failed me or stranded me. You can see that it is very durable and trouble free. The shifter is also very fast and consistent.” Tim has continued to ride and is still riding both of his trikes, with safety, comfort and ease. He plans to add as many miles as he can until he can’t ride anymore.
The Kliktronic Universal kit consists of a handlebar switch, control box, a mounting bracket and the actuator. Installation usually takes about 4 to 6 hours and is quite easy to do. Most bikers that do some work on their own motorcycles will be able to install it themselves. The install is not difficult, BUT it must be exact. The electrical connections are very easy—-+ battery, -battery and a hot ignition on wire connection.
Our newest model comes prewired to accept an ignition interrupt switch, which would allow full throttle upshifts without using the clutch. If this would be the fourth connection, an ignition interrupt switch would also be required, which we also have in stock.
On most bikes there is usually a convenient spot to mount the actuator, either to the frame or to the primary drive area. On Harley-Davidson open V-twin motorcycles the front frame down tube works well in most cases. The control box is slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes and is easy to fit under the seat or in the faring.
The switch assembly goes down on the left handlebar between the grip and the clutch lever housing and needs ¼” of space. The weight of the unit is about 5 pounds which has little or no effect on the power to weight ratios.. It lends itself to race applications extremely well, be it drag, road or street racing. In the case of drag racing this unit allows you to lay down on a a street bike and still shift.
And as far as road racing or street racing, be it closed circuit or on back country roads, this will give you faster and more consistent shifts without having to take your feet off the pegs. All this gives you some of the fastest times you ever had and moves you up to the front of the pack.
For those of us with a disability, this shifter means new found freedom. It gets us back out on the road and riding in a safe way and allows us to have both hands on the handlebars instead of using a hand shifter.
These are a few points about our shifter. I hope this answers some of the common questions you may have about the Kliktronic Electric Shifter. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance to you.
