It goes really hard if you want.

If you like lots of power on tap go for it.
Tell a bit more. I wanna do this December when my warranty expires on the 2018 K1600. Did you get the equipment and flash all in and did the job yourself? This is what I want to do. Always fiddling and cannot live with the pathetic throttle response of my 2018 K1600GT

Also interested how the Bren upgrade interacts with the quick shifter? Anybody got any experience?

No effect on the quick shifter, pro or con.

Yes I had issues with the quick shifter, in the end I removed Brentune and went back to stock.
With wide open throttle and above 7000 rpm the quick shift would not change gear and the engine would bog down, this happened with stage 1 and stage 2, they also sent me a third tune but that did th same, with th stock load it was fine. They did their best to help but did not work for me

How often do you actually find yourself with the throttle wide open, the RPM above 7000, and trying to shift gears without using the clutch?

There is NO need to tailgate me when I am doing 50 in a 35 zone... and those flashing lights on top of your car look ridiculous.

I'd rather live without the quickshifter than with the louse throttle response.
Maybe Bren has solved the issue by the time I purchase.
And if they can't then I will just remove the quickshifter mechanics or switch or whatever on the gear leverage. Anybody done that?

My Bren stage 2 works outstanding. You must have some ecu problems for it not to work.
