Orient Express Press Release - Nextup Quick Shifter Kits

2015-12-14 06:54
Orient Express is excited to present the new line of Nextup stand-alone quick shifter kits! The Nextup Quick Shifter Kits include the most popular fuel injection/ignition kill box on the market, a bike specific plug and play harness, and a compact shift sensor with adapters -- providing a complete stand-alone solution for most late model sportbikes. Nextup is also offering the Nextup Quick Shifter Sensor developed to work with a quick shift activated re-flashed ECU (custom wiring required). Working closely with our partners at Nextup allowed Orient Express to develop these new kits which offer unparalleled shift speed and precision for an incredible price, without the need for other components.

Since its release the Orient Express Nextup kill box has gained enormous popularity due to its super smooth shifts, compact size and amazing programmability. Easily programmable for kill and delay time in each gear position with onboard buttons and display, this sophisticated unit allows 0-140ms kill time. This Zero Kill feature eliminates the need for additional modules on semi-auto shift applications, allowing quicker, simpler more reliable installations. Combined with the Nextup plug and play bike specific harnesses, the Nextup kill box can control four or eight injector machines with ease. The Nextup Quick Shifter Kits utilize the same successful control box as supplied for air shifter applications. Universal (non-plug and play) kits are also available for custom installations or carbureted applications. Kits are priced from $379 to $499 ready to install.

Benefits of the Nextup Quick Shifter Kits include:
• Factory-style connectors for trouble-free plug-and-play installation
• Easy pushbutton programming for optimum speed and smoothness
• Fuel cut (as opposed to ignition cut) improves precision and eliminates backfires
• Available with pull or push switch for standard-shift or reverse-shift patterns
• Versatile switch mounting accommodates stock or aftermarket rear sets

The stand-alone Nextup Quick Shifter Sensor Kit offers re-flashed ECU owners a cost effective quick shift upgrade. Specific ECU programming and custom wiring are required for installation. Great also for two wire OEM or aftermarket connections. Nextup Quick Shifter Sensor Kits include an assortment of M6 x 1.0mm threaded rods in male and female versions, as well as standard and left hand thread. This assortment allows easy installation on nearly any machine. The Nextup Quick Shifter Sensor kit for OEM and aftermarket quick shifter applications is competitively priced at $159.95.
