Isle of Man born Side-car Champion Dave Molyneux will be hoping to increase his already impressive string of TT wins to 15 in 2012 with the help of Pro-Shift Technologies as a new addition to his world class team. Pro-Shift's MD Roy Tansley is no stranger to the gruelling 37 3/4 mile  mountain curcuit as he holds the accolade of being the fastest disabled rider around the course. The original Pro-Shift Gearshifter was Roy's own invention to enable him to continue his love of racing following a biking accident which cost him his left leg.

Dave has been competing since 1985 and will again renew his partnership with World Champion passenger Patrick Farrance when they line up on the grid with their Kawasaki ZX-6R and new Pro-Shift System in a few weeks time. (Practice week starts on Saturday the 26th May).

Pro-Shift technicians Ian and Chris recently spent 3 days in the Isle of Man setting up Dave's outfit with the latest addition to the Pro-Shift range of Gearshifting Systems, the Closed Loop Bump & Blip TM. This System boasts fully adjustable flat shifting allied with an itegrated ignition ramping back on facility after a flat upshift to give the smoothest flatshifting available, when run in conjunction with the new remote cable operated Auto-Blip Downshifter the System provides lightening fast fully clutchless up and downshifting.

Following a successful installation all that remained was to put the System through its paces at Jurby airfield. As Chris has previous experience as a passenger the job of teaming up with Dave for the rigourous testing fell to him. The 160 mph Side-car runs proved to be the perfect cure for the excesses of local beer sampled the night before!

After the harsh environment of the airfield which was the ideal testing ground for the Closed Loop option, the System was deemed "perfect" and the Pro-Shift team set off for the trip back to Liverpool.

Dave will join Pro-Shift in the UK for final checks and adjustments before the start of Practice week.

Please contact us at info@proshift.com if the Closed Loop Bump & Blip TM System is just what you have been looking for. We are always happy to help.

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.
