General Race Tools Troubleshooting Guide

If you are experiencing problems with your Race Tools hardware then there are a few basic tests that you can complete which will help diagnose the issue.  The tests to be performed depend on which version of the Quickshifter you have - this will be either the GP Switch sensor, which is for Quickshifter-only models, and the GP ASG analogue sensor, which is for models that offer both the Quickshifter and Autoblipper. 

GP Switch sensor - for Quickshifter-only models

GP ASG analogue sensor - for models that have both the Quickshifter and Autoblipper

Here are the tests to complete:

  • Power test - check that the unit powers up when the ignition is turned on
    • GP Switch sensor - for Quickshifter-only models
      • The LED display should power on and briefly display two numbers.  Pressing the button on the right  should show the current sensitivity setting.  When the Quickshifter is activated (ie. gear shifter pressed) the LED dot on the right side of the display will turn on briefly. 
      • If the display shows 'E1' then the sensor has developed a fault and you will need to contact Support
    • GP ASG analogue sensor - for models that have both the Quickshifter and Autoblipper
      • The red LED should flash once (or twice) when the ignition is turned on.  This LED does not turn on when the gear shifter is pressed.
      • If the LED stays on after turning on the ignition, then the sensor has developed a fault and you will need to contact Support

If you are not getting any power, then please go through the Race Tools Troubleshooting article for your exact Quickshifter unit using one of the links below:

If the voltages seen do not match the test document, please open a support ticket, and let us know the make/model of the bike, and Race Tools ‘type’ as well as the results from the testing doc.

If you have power, then continue as follows:

  • Check that the clutch switch works correctly. 
    • Most QS/AB issues are due to the Clutch switch being removed/bypassed/linked/cut.
    • The clutch switch must be working correctly for the QS and AB to function correctly. 
    • The Race Tools functions check the Clutch switch and if the clutch is not being used, then it will trigger the QS/AB. If the Clutch lever is being used, then the QS/AB will not trigger.

  • If an option for your model, check that both front and rear wheel speed sensors, are plugged in, and NOT disabled in the bin file settings. 
    • Some models use the road speed for the Launch Control or Pit Speed Limiter functions.

  • If you have the Pit Speed Limiter Harness fitted, make sure the button is NOT pressed. 
    • The QS/AB will not function when the Pit Speed Limiter button is pressed, as it uses the same signal wire back to the ECU.

  • If the gearing (sprockets) has been changed drastically (more than a total of 2-3 tooth difference) then this can affect the ECU’s internal gear calculation (on models that do not have a Gear Position Sensor, like most Yamaha’s). 
    • Try using stock gearing and see if it then functions correctly. 
    • You can change the gearing, but there is a limit, at which point the ECU starts getting confused, and the QS/AB may not function as expected.
If you have completed these tests and your issues are still not resolved, please go through the Testing document for your Race Tools type from the Support Center using the two links above, then open a ticket, and report the results to us. Be sure to include your make/model/year, and Race Tools ‘type’.
