Installation was about as involved as making an omelette, accomplished in under 15 minutes thanks to the simplicity of the QSE and the fact that I already had the bodywork off the bike. (If I’d had to remove the bodywork and tank, the project would likely have taken another hour or so.) First you bolt up the shift sensor (see caption at right), mount the matchbox-size QSE module in a convenient location with the provided Velcro, and then hook up the wiring. That means plugging the shift sensor into the module, securing the ground wire, and plugging two OE-style connectors into the bike’s wiring harness at the fuel injector. Even if you’re intimidated by the thought of lubing your own chain, installing the QSE is definitely something you can handle.
