Imagine you are out cruisin’ your favorite stretch of black top and shifting gears with the simple press of a button. Sounds too good to be true huh? For so many of us, the constant need to shift up or down when you just want to enjoy the roads can really become a drag. Here at K and G Cycles we understand your pain and are happily offer you an alternative no longer requiring the use of the clutch and foot shifter to select the desired gear while enjoying the road. Pingel Electric Easy Shifter simplifies the whole process of shifting gears with the push of a button allowing you to up-shift or downshift and providing you smooth transitions to the required gear. Some of the top rides are California’s Pacific Coast Highway, Deals Gap or The Dragon as it has been affectionately named (318 curves in 11 miles) The Blue Ridge Parkway and Spearfish Canyon Road out in the Black Hills. There is a ton of shifting and braking going on.
Now imagine how those rides would be without having to manually shift. If you have the Pingel Electric Speed Shift Kit installed – You can keep your feet up, your hands gripped firmly on the bars, and all you have to do to shift is push a button on your handlebar control. It’s easy, just like the name says. This unit puts so much more fun into your riding experience. You don’t lose the ability to shift manually, but you’ll never want to because you’ll be having too much fun! Just picture it: You pull up to a red light, the light turns green, you grab a handful of throttle and rocket through the gears faster than even the best racer can shift manually! While they are pulling the clutch and finding 2nd gear, you have left them in your dust. While out on that relaxing ride through the countryside, you know the one through the hills and curves, while everyone else is exercising their left hand the entire time you will be relaxing and enjoy the scenery thanks to your Electric Easy Shift Kit from Pingel. You may never want to shift manually again.
We have had customers comment that they like clutching and shifting, that an automatic shifter seems somewhat lazy, or that it must just be for old folks. However, it isn’t about any of that. It is about adding another dimension to motorcycle riding, an altogether new form of fun to be had! Improve your everyday riding experience – install a Pingel Electric Easy Shift Kit on your motorcycle.
Pingel Enterprise, Inc. owners, Wayne & Donna are motorcycle enthusiasts that not only design and manufacture the products, but use them as well. Here are a few words from Donna, “Riding my V-Rod with the Electric Speed Shift is a blast. When I am at a stop sign and want to speed through the gears at full throttle, I can – just like that, no comparison to the manual shifting. And when I want to just ride nice and easy, I can do that too. My husband rides a 2005 H-D Classic with an S&S 124” and Barnett Scorpion clutch along with his Electric Speed Shifter and he has just as much fun. (Well, he likes speeding through the gears just a little more than I do). We enjoy riding through the Black Hills and Southwestern Wisconsin. Both are more enjoyable with the Electric Speed Shift by Pingel.”
These kits have been designed for full or partial throttle with clutchless up shifting with a single push of the button. Down shifting is achieved by a push of the downshift button. Keep in mind clutch use is required for starting and stopping purposes only. Suited for Sport Bikes, Drag Bikes, Customs, Cruisers, and Touring Bikes, these kits are the perfect match for male and female riders whose bikes require a considerable amount of hand strength to pull in the clutch lever (a situation found on many H-D models). OEM hand/foot shifting ability is retained even after installation.
Pingel Electric Speed Shifter kits come with everything you need to decrease the physical demands placed on you during gear changes. You’ll find in every kit a dual button handlebar control, a shift cylinder with a beautiful chrome plated finish, shift cylinder support bracket and a state of the art control module which sends a quick and reliable signal from the button control to the shift cylinder without delay. Also included is the ignition kill module which momentarily interrupts the ignition coils, and detailed, step-by-step instructions with photos for easy installation.
So you see, you can relax even more while out riding, thus allowing you to enjoy everything there is to see. Available at K and G Cycles the Pingel Electric Speed Shifter is one accessory designed to increase rider enjoyment while decreasing physical involvement on your ride.
