Well, the standard one is gone, but the GP pattern quickshifter is included. Frankly, I think the bike works better without either one.

Is the reverse shift pattern (MotoGP) illegal in some states? The price is a little high for a non-ABS. I think he solld the original quick shifter. Folks don't just "misplace" parts they take off a bike like the HP2Sport.

...your posts should be illegal...

He's the second owner, it is easily possible that the quick shifter was lost in the transfer. You seem to have misplaced your brain a long time ago, why don't you think that it is possible that someone misplaced a quick shifter?

the quickshifter is the coolest feature you never knew you needed until you try it!

So what are your points?

Lots of aftermarket parts are technically illegal for public roads, but what does that have to do with a part that was designed to allow the rider to upshift in the middle of a left hand turn on the track?

We will see about the price.

Why would you say you think "he solld" (sic) the original quickshifter? After the first owner bought the $600+ GP pattern shifter, he put the stock item in one of several boxes that were later taken to offsite storage where he either couldn't find it, or more likely just did not want to go look. If the new owner wants the standard quickshifter, I'm sure there are still HP2 Sport owners out there that will swap theirs out to get the GP shifter and avoid paying the very high price for a new one.

Hey Scott, obviously this is your bike that you are selling. Even if the others above could not figure that out. You have the same picture in the "One Best" thread...

Anyway, you may also want to post it over on the buy and sell board. Just another avenue for a sale.

As far as price, that's your business, and your negotiation between a serious interested party. Don't pay attention to casual blather from the peanut gallery.

It's a question and a thought, having been the owner of a HP2Sport. Ralf, your normal response is duely noted. ScottA, you are certainly welcomed to suppose what you like. Sometimes folks sell the "take-off's" to offset the cost of the new acquisition. I'm sure you,ve seen that on the pelican sale forum.

Nail, that photo reminds me of the old days there in the Malone area of Jackson county where I was born just as the WWII started. Very near, 3 miles or so, from the Alabama line. The folks around there were close knit, and did not take much to strangers. There was very little graffiti on the streets and break-in's of private homes were rare or under-reported. No one, was unarmed, and my Granny Roche, like most of the house women around there, kept a single shot 12 gauge Winchester with it's 38" full choke barrel in the kitchen, telling me once that she "figured I can stop um afore they ever get near the yard if'in I use a double ought (00) shell in it." Grand daddy Mozley carried a nickel plated 32 with him were ever he went, leaving it in his car only once a week when he went in to Church.

Jim, this is a rare photo of the Hatfield Clan in West Virginia. I'm going to try to end the feud between Signit98, Gotroads? and Nail 24. But, it won't end by my leaving the forum. I'll even spell Signit98's name correctly if I ever use in again in a future post.

I wondered where the rappers got their pose. Nothing new under the sun as Solomon said.

I know the photo Nail. The man standing on the far left rear is William Sidney "Sid" Hatfield, who later went on to become the Sheriff in the Matewan section of W.V.. He is one of the few law men who supported the rights of coal mine workers in the area and was there when the coal company sent "Pinkerton Men" (Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency) to enforce their will on the somewhat helpless workers. "Sid" met them when they came toward town from their private railroad car and what took place was not what they had in mine. The gunfight that ensued cost the lives of four of the coal mine company's hired hoods and made Sid a hero that is still remembered in Matewan till this very day.

Great photo and shows clearly the resolve of a close knit mountain family. He, Sid, was later murdered in broad daylight from a surprise attack on him by the hired Felts forces who shot him to death on the courthouse steps in 1921.

Jim, I believe Matewan, WV was the scene of some extreme violence between the coal miners union organiziers and the company union busters that were brought in to keep the miners from organizing.

I missed the post where we went from a missing quickshifter to Bubba's ancestors. Can someone point me to it?

As for the missing quickshifter, as has been said before, the quickshifter on the HP2S is one of those things that you didn't want until you had it. I'm sure someone who's never ridden an HP2S without one wouldn't mind but if you have, you really wouldn't want to buy a bike that didn't have it.

And, I'm not mistaken, then GP shifter basically reverses the shift operation. I'd kill myself, I mean, the transmission, if I had one of those since my brain is already wired a certain way. Maybe a club racer (few of them here) would want that, but not us coffee shop pelican racers.

I'm curious about what a BMW engineer would say about the effect that medium-throttle, lower gear upshifts using the quickshifter have on long-term transmission, drive shaft and final drive reliability. Third to fourth, fourth to fifth and fifth to sixth shifts, even at part-throttle, are relatively smooth. Lower gear upshifts at full or near full-throttle don't seem too bad, but medium throttle lower gear upshifts make me cringe.

The HP2 is not the only bike I have with a quickshifter. I'm almost always smoother with the clutch, but admittedly give up that fraction of a second that I'm off the gas. For racers, that fraction is important. And, because they want to be able to easily shift in tight left handers, almost all of them use the GP shift pattern.

Are quickshifters fun for a street rider? For me, sometimes, but I'm getting to the point that I rarely use the one that's on my K1300S, and I obviously don't use one on the HP2. The $600 cost and the perceived added stress on the driveline just aren't worth it to me.

My experience is exactly opposite now. Even on my GS I'm now I've been 'quickshifting' by letting off the throttle then upshifting sans clutch. It's markedly faster obviously and given the quickness etc there's probably no more clutch wear if done right than with the use of the clutch lever. As for driveline/trans shock, going off throttle and reducing driveline stress makes it probably insignificant IMO>
