DCT foot shift kit
on: February 02, 2013, 12:43:40 PM
Hello

someone has installed the foot shift kit?



i have in mind!

in some case is difficult to find the exact button -

In my audi car, the position selector down - is where the + is on the bike and I'm a mess

and i think that will be more easy for me use the foot for change the speed!

Thanks

DCT with a foot shift? Nah, not for me - my left legs not at it's best anyway  :003:

Original Honda parts though - so at least it'll work  :002:

I'll have it installed next week. I guess it's the first case here at Finland. :001: They seem to think that I am stupid or something...

So how is it working? I have no problem using the + and - buttons.

Sounds like Finnish people are very observant, or something...  :015:

I never missed a foot shift really. Though i didn't count the times i "searched" for one  :016:

But what i sometimes miss - on certain situations - is a manual clutch lever to "soften" or fine tune the slow movements. But that probably would be too complicated to integrate in a DCT system.

I don't miss the clutch at all. I have found manual mode or sport mode best for very slow riding.

The DCT seems to know what I want to do - clever guy that Mr H.  :020:
