push button shifting

With that boot holder thing mounted above the peg it looks like that bike may have been built for someone with no or limited use of their legs.

They've had air and electronic shifters for drag race bikes for a long time but I'm pretty sure they can only upshift. They kill the ignition for a split second during the shift for smooth clutchless upshifts. That dirtbike probably has an auto-clutch in it.

Probably a solenoid that "fires" rather than an actuator that moves.

There is also the Dale Walker's Holeshot Performance electric shifter. It has an electric selenoid that operates a cable that will actuate the shift lever. From some of the research I've done users (all dragracers) say it's easier to set up than the Pingle. As I understand it it can be set up for street, dirt and ATV's. Expensive though...depending on how elaborate you want to get it could run close to $800.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
