PUSH BUTTON GEAR CHANGE SYSTEM FOR DISABLED MOTORCYCLE RIDERS
Kliktronic system prices from £599
VAT exempt for disabled riders
The Kliktronic gear change system (electric shifter or quick shifter) is best described as an 'electronic foot'. It’s operated by two discreet buttons - usually mounted on the left handlebar which sit conveniently beneath the thumb.
Designed to accommodate riders with a disability preventing changing gear with the foot, the Kliktronic push-button gear change is the ideal solution for everyone.
It’s suitable for virtually any kind of riding, whether you are looking for a fast change for racing or track days, or comfort and convenience when cruising.
More recently, we have seen an increase in bike-engined cars. Again, the Kliktronic gear change system is perfect for this application, giving you a true F1 type feel, using either steering wheel buttons or paddles for a slick gear change.

We can also supply an optional ignition interrupt module which is compatible with our system, this is available as an add-on if not required immediately. The cost of this module is £199 + VAT - there is no additional carriage charge if ordered at the same time as the Kliktronic unit.
FAQS ABOUT THE KLIKTRONIC SYSTEM
Yes, for pulling away and for town work - once underway though you can change up without the clutch and often down without the clutch too- depending on the gearbox and your skill at matching the revs.
The Kliktronic system is designed to have a 'feel factor' emulating the way you would use your foot. In this way it responds to the way you press the buttons. A positive push on the 'up' button will take you from 1st to 2nd gear. Whereas a quick stab at the button will lift you out of 1st into neutral - it is a knack which you soon acquire and will be able to get neutral at will.
Yes, usually you can retain the existing pedal - since the Kliktronic is completely free-floating until energised you can make a normal manual shift if you wish.
Yes, the unit is compatible with all popular interrupt systems, in particular we recommend the Techtronics system which can be triggered directly from our buttons using an additional module.
It is significantly faster and more consistent, see our Dyno page where we have compared figures for manual change, Kliktronic assist and Kliktronic plus ignition interrupt - we have managed to get the interrupt time down to about 35 milliseconds using this system.
In most cases the unit simply clamps to the frame or some convenient mounting point and is attached to an existing pedal arrangement, however sometimes the lever may need to be modified to achieve the best results. Other than this you may have to remove a small piece of handlebar grip to accommodate the switch assembly, in some cases this is not necessary, simply by moving the clutch and switch assembly. (See our gallery page for examples). It is a straightforward matter to remove the system if you change your machine leaving it in original condition - we have many owners who have used the same system on several machines in succession.
We have an in house fitting service, plus a network of approved centres who can carry out the work. The price will vary for each machine, an average figure would be around £2-300.
We have supplied numerous units for car applications, they are even capable of working the box in tandem with a conventional stick shift giving you both options. Switching can be made by virtually any means including rev-limiters etc.
