When Jock Inkster's left leg was amputated above the knee after being knocked off his motorbike he resigned himself to no longer being able to ride and enjoy his passion for bikes. This was all about to change on his retirement from the Army having spent his last 5 years with them out in Africa. Whilst back visiting the UK for 3 months the urge to ride a bike again took hold of him and refused to let go.

Following extensive research on how to overcome the problem of changing gear with no left foot, Pro-Shift were deemed to be the people to help. Owner and MD of the business Roy Tansley had previously faced the identical challenge and solved the problem by inventing the prototype Pro-Shift System for his personal use. Jock's dream bike, a Ducati 748 Bi-Posto duly arrived at the Pro-Shift premises where a Pro-Shift PS2 Gearshifter was installed by the specialist team of technicians. Handlebar controls meant Jock was good to go once the bike's suspension had been lowered and softened and the sidestand adapted by the Pro-Shift team to make riding easier for him.

A delighted Jock was soon ready to return to Kenya along with his new Ducati and bespoke Pro-Shift System.

Jock regularly keeps the Pro-Shift team updated on his biking escapades on the rough roads that are now "the norm" for him. Please click here to read of his recent epic journey from Nairobi to the Equator and beyond.

If a Pro-Shift can handle the African terrain with ease, imagine the difference it will make to your own biking experience. Contact us info@proshift.com if we can help with either a Gearshift installation or a bespoke motorbike adaptation and it may be you we're writing a News article about in the months to come!

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 !!!!

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.

ADRIAN LEWIS (UK) May 24 2016

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