    DCT gear pedal?

    Anyone got the (very expensive) gear-change foot pedal?

    Is it worth having?

    Haven't got one, but also don't see the point. With DCT I let bike do gear changing vast majority of time. When I want to change down it's easy enough with the switchgear. After a short period of adjustment you soon get used to left foot being redundant while riding.  :002:

    :0461: Cant see the point and certainly wouldn't pay £100's for one.

    I have it. I want to change with foot in certain situations (trackdays, and when trying to go really fast in gravel..). For me it is best of both worlds. Oddly enough, when changing with foot it really feels like having a autosifter, with fingers it doesn't..
    Regards the price, asking price was ridiculous.. but it was part of buying process and negotiations of the whole package.. back in February 2013..

    I think I'd use it if I had one. Though price makes it a bit a prohibitive.

    Hello,

    Well just before this post was put up I bought one from Northwest Honda for £315 using their discount coupon which you sometimes see in the sidebar on this forum.

    Fitting is easy and I have found myself using it quite a bit. However that may be novelty value and could wear off. Also it completes all the possible options that were available from Honda in the accessories brochure....

    I don't smoke or do drugs (recreationally) so what else do I spend my pennies on except my motorcycles.... You can't take it with you and I am reliably informed that there are no pockets in a shroud :001:

    Best regards,

    David :028:

    Your money David, your decision what you spend it on.  :028:
