Your instructions direct you to cut the cover? I don't recall that in my directions. I will have to re-read. That makes total sense actually based on my experience with the cover. Still haven't gotten the damn thing on right.....

Upon review of my instructions, it DID NOT advise to cut the cover. Interesting.

A few notes after about a dozen or so rides with the QS.

I am still getting used to it after so many years of using the clutch. I have to remind myself to NOT rolloff during upshifts. And I have caught a few false neutrals in the higher gears, mainly due to lower RPM and uncrisp shifting on my part.

And I found a more sensitive setting on the QS works best for me....meaning having any unintended contact with the shifter will cause the motor to cutout. This would be bad at high lean angles as it definitely unsettles the bike big time. Thankfully, this unintended contact with the shifter happens when I am touring home from the foothills, so while it's startling (especially the FIRST time it happens) it's not really unsafe.

But I will tell you. Getting into a tuck and banging thru the gears at WOT is just plain awesome...just make sure you pick the appropriate spots to do so.

Like the 1125R, the quickshifter works best when you are riding hard.

Any one else getting the QS Fireball when low to mid rpm light shifting? Looks and sounds baadass.

Ill look through my instructions again, I cant remember for sure now cut vs no mention but my cover got hung up on the large spacer. Quick grinding on the spacer to take some off and it fit without flexing the cover. I love it. Favorite mod so far.

Are you talking about the exhaust popping? For lack of a better term.

Yep, I get it too. I haven't seen it, but it does sound pretty damn cool!
