I have ordered a Healtech IQSE quickshifter for my 1200 R.
According to Healtech installation should be pretty straight forward.
Has anyone over here installed it already, and is it really that simple to install?
Tips and tricks are welcome! https://www.healtech-electronics.com/products/qse/
Yes and yes.
HealTech has the best installation instructions I have seen. They are model specific, not generic as with most others. Using your Android phone makes adjustments fast and easy.
Placing the box under the seat takes a bit of fiddling but doable.
Just be very sure you ordered the correct pieces for your bike. So many offerings it is easy to make an ordering mistake.
After riding with it a while you will notice your forearms bulking up a bit. That is from having to hold onto the bars tighter. ;-)
Curious to know how you're finding the QS? Does it work for both up and down shifts?
You might have missed this while reading the HealTech QS FAQs.
You may do clutchless downshifts with partial throttle from the higher (4-6) gears only if the shifts are smooth and effortless on your bike and the shift lever is not stiff. Otherwise, use the clutch for downshifts.
Yup missed that. thanks! Hoping the OEM 1200S will fit or Ducati will pull finger and make an optional accessory for us R owners. I really want both up/down shifting, works really well on my Pani
Absolutely. We've discuss this on another thread as well. I have also asked my parts manager about the new OEM QS on the 2017 1200S but have yet to get a response about 1200R compatibility. Can't wait to share that info with you guys when I get an answer...hopefully a positive one.

The QS of the new 1200S won't work because the 1200S uses a different motormanagement which is not compatible with the R's motormanagement.
I would have preferred to use the OEM part as well...
I am however not really interested in downshifting with the QS, that would only be nice to have for me.
