is it compatible with auto tune and pcv?


Yes. I have a PC5 and AT-200.

Like Seno said, the HM PLUS hokks inline between stick coils and grey top engine wire connectors. What ever electronics you might have should have no impact on the shifter.

There is an HM PC shifter that hooks up to the PCV or PC3.. That is NOT the best choice for the ZX-14 if you are going with this shifter. Seems like it would be nice to have everything all interlinked but not if there is a problem with running the bike. Then you don't know oif it is shifter or PC.


Get the HM PLUS.

Thanks Samin. Hope to make more before long.

Front tire? ahh-- I get it! That front lockup was last summer. Yeah, i remembered that well and also took heed of everyone's advice to go kinda easy on the fresh cold track we have in Spring. So, you were able to view that vid? I thought Youtube was blocking it cuz it has third party content (music). Well, if they eased up, great. Nothin offensive and obviously I ain't making any money off my bike vids.

Gotcha. Yes that vid is accessible to anyone. I have that footage and more from that day that was edited and set to music. That one is blocked in the US and most other countries because of unauthorized use of the music track. : / Well, thanks for watchin' samin. Some of these vids can get to be a lot of work.

So if I wanna install the HM Quickshift Plus on my 08 ZX14, I need to have aftermarket rearsets? Or will they work with stock?

Okay. I've always ran basically stock bikes and never purchased rearsets. Which ones do you recommend for a decent price?

That's a hard question to answer. I purchased the rearsets on my bike (Vortex) off eBay brand new in a sealed package for only $150, which is half of wholesale cost from a dude with 0 feedback.... There are many different brands out there which range from $250-$$550, personally I would not buy "no name" rearsets and would only buy a "name" brand in case you ever need replacement parts. It really depends how deep your pockets are and what style catches your eye, with that being said personally I would recommend the Vortex brand (my first pair), good quality, flawless operation and sharp looking.

Right on thanks, I am going to go with the Vortex rear sets. Talked to the guy from HM on the phone today and he recommends the HM over the Annitori since im mainly drag racing. What do you think Seno? I just wanted to get the Annitori since it does the job and costs less.

You dumb fuckin idiot you already have a air shifter. You run a shitty tire and it doesn't shift when the fuckin bike is spinning. Get a tire worth a fuck and you won't have a problem.

Just received mine in the mail. I ordered it on Wednesday and it arrived priority mail on Saturday. These guys are serious about customer satisfaction. I received tracking info and PDF's regarding installation, set-up and trouble shooting the day I ordered it. My new rear sets are scheduled to arrive in two days so I will get pics up after the install...Can't Wait!!!

Air shifter with auto shift for drag racing would be my personal choice.... HM unit is great, I honestly can't tell you how much I love this product, the best upgrade on my bike for sure. I am not a drag racer, but rather a street racer, casual rider (if I had a local track closer than 2.5 hours away without traffic, I would be posting track videos left and right).

HM is imported by Annitori. Their shifter is $275ish if I remember correctly and has fewer adjustment settings. When I asked the same question to the guys at Annitori I was told it's like comparing a turbo Porsche to an Enzo Ferrari... No one would be upset pulling up next to the Enzo in a turbo. I know a few people who have purchased the HM unit and love it, you my friend will be the first so please share your feedback. Everyone loves to save money when they find an equal product for half the price. I have the HM unit which was about $500, and have it dialed in PERFECTLY.... WOT any gear it shifts perfectly, with or without nitrous.

Finally got the Annitori quick shifter installed. Not too difficult to install although barely enough room for my hands around the coils. Highly recommended!!! It is a blast to use!!!

Hmm, well here it goes. The 8 plugs go between your coils... So basically you unplug a coil, plug the female end into the wiring harness and the male end into the coil (repeat 4 times). Take care to make sure that you plug everything back in properly. Next run the wire down towards the shift lever, obviously you have to check the initial amount of slack to see what your options are. The HM kit has a control box that just barely fit under the seat..... Unfortunately I do not know what your kit comes with. You need to fit your shifter linkage onto your existing shift hardware (assuming it is all there). That's it in a nutshell, hope that helped!

Thank you very much Seno. I figured it out and installed today. It isworking in both upshifting and downshifting(not sure if it is safe). I just made a short ride and I must say that it was a wonderful one Thanks for your rewiev and advice. Here is a short video of testing shifter after install,

It looks great! I do however have a question, which model are you running? Personally I have mine set to Compression (it only blips the ignition on up shift). I would not want mine to be active on downshifts unless my bike was on the track. I hope you enjoy it, that flame looks cool coming out of your exhaust!
