electric or air shifter?

Looking to get an auto shifter and would like to get everyone who has personal experience with the 2. Pros and cons, i am aware in the price difference. I do like that the Pingel electric shifter can down shift as well as up.

It's really a mixed bad...What will you be doing with the bike? If your riding on the street electric is a lot more "user friendly", no need for on board compressor or having to deal with making sure you have enough air for a day or riding around. If your drag racing it, air is the way to go. I know the Pingel can downshift, but will you really take advantage of it? Just my 2 cents. I had a holeshot electric shifter and it was descent, but the cable/linkage had to be adjusted occasionally.

It will be used for the strip with occasional street use

I run air shifter but using my nitrous. Takes almost nothing to use. Friend uses a setup he made for air shifter and works great. Both are used for drag, land speed and street.

I have not used an electric setup so I can't compare.

I have had my Pingle on two different bikes over a period of 7 years.Works great.It is bulky and their electronics suck.I ended up with an MPS auto-shift box and it works great

There's also a Dale Walker Power Shifter. It uses a large solenoid with cable attached to the shifter. Works good. I used one on an '03 Yamaha R1. Just gotta remember to turn it on. I went with air on the ZX14 because the solenoid is big and couldn't find a spot to install it.

I had the pingle electric on my 07 but didnt have the auto shift with it. I looked into it, but you needed the pingle auto shift box plus a dyna shift minder put all that together thats a heafty price to pay for the auto shift. I now have a MPS autoshift on my 2012. I have a Macintosh arm with the air tank, got a slime compressor from schnitz and the MPS auto shift box and both those units fit inside the battery compartment...I like my air shifter better than the Pingle fyi
