How to: Homemade Power Commander III Quick Shifter

Found a DIY for this on a zx10r forum, so I decided to make my own variation. Please ask any questions you may have

Disclaimer! If you blow your shit up, thats on you, not me. I personally havent had any problems with it


Switch (picked mine up at radio shack)
bolts (I used 4-40 (I know its not metric ))
Some sort of female pin for the PC plug


Wire cutters/strippers
allen for bolts
Thread tap (that matches your bolts)

Step 1: Figure out your mounting point. At first I was going to make a bracket but soon realized that the shift rod moves enough down that it has the potential to activate the switch. Notice, I'm running GP shift, so if you are not this placement wont work, but the concept is the same

Step 2: drill 2 holes for the bolts that hold the switch in place, and tap them

Step 3: Check your mounting points and make sure it all lines up

Step 4: solder wires onto the switch and run them to the tail

Step 5: Figure out how to get the wires to stay into the correct pins on the PC. You need to connect the 2 wires to the top far most right and top far most left pins. I had some female pins laying around that fit perfectly onto the PCIII's pins, then wrapped tape around it to hold them on (sorry I didnt take a before tape picture )

Step 6: Go to this link and download the QS add on, and activate it with your PCIII plugged in

Step 7: Open the PCIII software and change the delay to 85ms (seems to work well, but again, you will have to adjust it to what you like)

Step 8: You are going to have to adjust the metal lever that hits the switch, the goal is to get it to activate as you push the lever down, it will take some fine tuning to get it correct

Step 9: Go ride it!

Honda has 1 or 2 good points. Everything does. Including Herpes. Herpes has it's own herpes infected only dating site. Is this a reason to catch herpes? FUCK no.
