Removing quick shifter

I don’t really care for the quick shifter. Can I simply remove it or is there more to it?

    You don't have to use it.

    My dealer told me it's not worth removing it, too much hassle?

    I'm confused as to why you want to remove it.

    If I could toggle it on and off with a button or switch maybe I would want to keep it. But since I enjoy the clutch, it is just something else to break. Also I was not super impressed with it. I changed the settings and tried shifting slower or faster, but to me the quick shifter is a little clunky. Plus if it was easy to take off, I could sell it for like $100 and buy some accessories I actually want.

    Sorry, but that makes no sense to me.  Just don't use it.  You don't need to turn it off.  I use the clutch 99% of the time on mine, and my quickshifter is enabled.  All the North American bikes come with the quickshifter standard.  Not much market here.

    it takes a little time to adapt to it but on hard acceleration is superb.  Anyway it will be superseded  by 2025 when Honda put their E Clutch on the Transalp, far better more reliable across the rev/gear range and best alternative on a DCT system which is too heavy for the TA
