Yes you do. Get the Driven D-Axis rearsets that just came out for the 2012 model. They are badass but a lil expensive too.

I know a little about Air shifters and Electric shifters but how does the quick shifter work in comparison to foot shifting?

You still foot shift but in line with the shifter is a "strain gauge" that senses the pressure and kills the ignition for a specified period of time which allows you to WOT and shift any gear... More info can be found here http://www.hmquickshifter.com/

Thank You, Seno! What are the advantages or disadvantages of the Quickshifter -vs- an Air Shifter, what are rearsets that was mentioned earlier and which brand shifer is best...HM, MPS or Dynojet?

Well most drag racers will use an air shifter with auto shift for consistency. Street riders use quickshifters more than air due to the simplicity (no air tanks or onboard compressor needed). There are quite a few differences between the dynojet quickshifter and HM Plus (I have owned both). First Dynojet is a mechanical switch, HM is a Strain Gauge (same unit that many teams use in Moto GP). HM is a standalone unit and is adjustable for sensitivity & kill time, Dynojet needs a PC and is a mechanical switch that you have to "align" at the proper shift point, and can vary the kill time also. Regarding rearsets, they are the aftermarket foot pegs which allow you to vary the position of your feet . Which is best depends on how deep your pockets are and what you are doing with your bike.... I have to say that I am 100% satisfied with the HM but for the same money you can get a "complete" auto air shifter with compressor http://www.tobefast.com/mps-sportbike-auto-air-shifter-c-63428-p-2-pr-2703-f-64137.html. It's all preference & application, hope this helps....

BTW, if you have a PC, you can add a quick shifter for $250ish..... I went through 3 of them on my 07 but many people have had good luck with them (Dynojet really did not stand behind their product as well as they should IMHO). There is also a $250 option strain gauge shifter (made by HM) but it has a little less features then the HM Plus unit ( imported from the same company that brings in the HM). http://www.annitorirl.com/product_detail_1.php

Can a quickshifter be programmed to kill the fuel between shifts instead of jus the ignition, like the digikill does on an Airshifter?

HM is ignition kill, not fuel....

So that means if you're running nitrous, you will still hear the poppin sounds between shifts since it's not killing the fuel between shifts?
