FAQs - General

What can I do if Pro-Shift do not have a bespoke System already developed for my specific vehicle?

Please contact us for further details on +44(0)1332 668100 or e-mail info@proshift.com We are always happy to take on new developments to broaden our range.

Why choose Paddle-Shift over manual shift?

Paddle-Shift not only allows gearshifts to be made  far more quickly and clutchlessly with full throttle, it also allows the driver to keep both hands on the wheel, both eyes on the road and provides them with much more time to concentrate on their driving.

Is it kind to Gearboxes?

Yes, the very nature of electronic solenoid gearshift operation is such that it delivers a rising power curve from it's "rest position" thus providing natural compliance with gearbox dogs/dog rings.

Do Pro-Shift supply Systems to foreign countries?

Yes. Pro-Shift distribute semi automatic electronic Systems world-wide on a regular basis.

Why choose Electronic over Air?

The Pro-Shift semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift System features modular electronic operation and with only one moving part provides generally faster more versatile gearshifting that is virtually maintenance free. Working off the vehicle's integral 12 volt power supply the Paddle-Shift does not require the import of  compressors, air tanks, valves, regulators etc. and most importantly does not produce water  as compressing air does. Electric operation also means that  you don't have to worry about your tank running out of air on the final lap!

FAQs - Systems

Can I obtain a Generic semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift and carry out my own development and fitting?

Yes. We are happy to supply generic postal systems worldwide along with comprehensive installation instructions and factory back up.

Can I select neutral using Paddle-Shift?

Yes. With the Pro-Shift semi automatic electronic System installed you can use either the steering wheel mounted paddles or your standard manual gear lever to select neutral.

Can I try a semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift before I purchase one?

Yes. We would be happy to take you out for a demonstration ride in our road legal Radical SR3.

Can I use the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift in conjunction with my manual gear lever?

Yes. With the Pro-Shift System installed you can use either the steering wheel mounted paddles to change gear or your standard manual gear lever at any time. Both methods are completely interchangeable at all times.

Does Paddle-Shift change gear faster than manual shifting?

Yes. In a recent Dynojet Dyno test the Pro-Shift semi automatic electronic System was 1.2 seconds quicker than the base clutchless manual run with only 4 upshifts.

How often should the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift be serviced?

The System does not require any maintenance unless it has been used in a particularly hostile environment. Please contact us on +44(0)1332 668100 or e-mail us at info@proshift.com for more information. 

Is Paddle-Shift reliable?

Yes, with over 18 years of top level racing development behind it the semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift is the culmination of all this work and effort. With only one moving part and tested to over half a million gearshifts we are hugely proud of our reliability record.

Will Paddle-Shift allow me to drive completely clutchlessly?

Yes. The semi automatic electronic Paddle-Shift provides clutchless upshifting as standard and with the integration of the Auto-Blip Downshift Module, downshifting will also be clutchless. The clutch will only be needed when pulling away and coming to a complete stop.

Thank you very much for everything! The Pro-Shift PS3.5 System with DBS™ on my BMW S1000RR is wonderful! I set it up within one day & everything works perfectly. Well... I can't believe it's so great!

NADUN WIJESEKARA (Sri Lanka) December 24 2017

I had a safe journey home as I took things nice & steady with the new Pro-Shift PS3.5 System installed on my Caterham 7... Then I went for a drive last weekend and WOW, the 7 is now so so fast, I've even said scary fast to some!.. Lovin' it!!!

STEWART HEATH (UK) September 18 2017

Finally I could try DBS™ at the Mallorca Ciruit and the result was FANTASTIC, the operation was very smooth and precise... I had no problem throughout the day! A couple of friends asked me to try my bike and they were surprised at how well it worked and asked me to install the DBS™ on their Kawasaki ZX10R 2012... Thank you so much for everything!

JORGE PIZA (Palma de Mallorca) August 28 2017

VG Motorsport Racing with a Rage buggy using Pro-Shift System, managed to finish the Rally-Greece off-road 2017 edition - 7th overall, 3rd in class, 1st Greek Team out of 34 Competitors!

Thank you all !!!!

VASILIS MOUNDREAS (Greece) June 14 2017

The new B&B II with strain gauge is FANTASTIC!.. An Awesome race weekend, I rode it and found it to work flawlessly. The ability to micro adjust just turns it into night and day. It was easy and worked perfectly... I was impressed!


I'm driving a kart with a Vortex 125ccm RKZ engine and in the past used another shifting system but it wasn't reliable and not powerful enough... I found the Pro-Shift PSU system with the stronger solenoid. The first test ride was great, a huge difference between old shifter and Pro-Shift! Shifts were 100% precise and super-fast, I had more than 300 rounds on our circuit without any problems!

MICHAEL STEINER (Switzerland) May 14 2017

After 3 seasons of use the gearbox internally looks like new and needs no revision at all. This shows how good the Pro-Shift system has worked. All I can say is thank you very much to all at Pro-Shift for such a good package, I can fully recommend it to anyone looking for a similar system!

MIKE CASON (UK) November 2 2014

Thanks so much Pro-Shift! The system is amazing on the road, can't wait to get it on the track. Well worth the money, the only thing that beats your product is your customer service. Couldn't recommend enough!!!

ROBERT GUY (UK) August 10 2016

Many thanks to Roy and Chris, amazing service as always! You are a fantastic team up there and always willing at short notice to help.

Everything installed and if I had to give a rank from 0 to 10 for it I would give 12.
