All 650Rs 650r quickshifter

I was lucky enough to get one of these online, genuine Honda. Installed easy no problems!

Although, I could swear this bike had a 'neutral finder' where it would always go to neutral from first at 0mph no matter how hard you kicked up? Or am I completely making that up?

I seemed to find neutral when upshifting from time to time, however the shifter seems to be improving. Havent had a false neutral for quite a while, could be I am getting used to the bike though.

I'd sometimes get stuck in neutral when accelerating hard from 1st to 2nd, doing a bit of general research is seems that some racers attribute that to play in the linkages and the extra 'throw' required to move from 1st, past neutral into 2nd. The solution was to limit play in the linkages and one product that popped up was this:


Apparently TSD have been making this part for ages. I had a look on my 2020 CB650R and yeah the shift barrel rod has maybe 1~2mm of vertical play in it, which translates quite a bit of play at the end of the leaver. That convinced me to buy one of the TSD parts and see how it goes: in summary it's pretty awesome. I'd say the shift feel went from a smoothish clunk on gear change down to a 'snick' into gear. It was a bit harder to find neutral though as there was no play to absorb any overshoot when trying to stop in neutral, but I haven't been stuck going from 1st to 2nd anymore. My only complaint of the TSD unit was the price, but before the part had arrived from Japan I'd already used the idea to 3D print my own which is actually a better design in some ways and cost very little to make!

Would that work with a cb650F from 2014? I also often get stuck on neutral going from 1st to second. It's very annoying...

Thanks inf4cti0n @inf4cti0n, I will take a look. Have you had any experience with this particular mod?

I recently had a weird situation where while cruising at about 80mph in 5th gear the bike suddenly downshifted straight to 2nd gear. No interaction from my side.
I know not fully engaged gears may pop out but they will usually pop one down, not from 5th to 2nd...

I am still a bit baffled by that.

I have been using that on my '14 650F for half a year. Gave me a bit stiff feel and I haven’t annoyed with sticking on neutral in shift up. But does NOT give me drastic changes, so it might be placebo effect. The cost was 83USD approx.
