What do you mean bi-directional?

You either need a push or pull quickshifter, depending on whether you run standard shift or GP shift.

Pretty sure he means bi-directional as in,the QS will allow up-shifts as well as down-shifts w/out the using clutch.

I'm sure the word BI got you all excited,so you get a pass.... :giggity

On the new GSXR 1000R Suzuki calls their QS bi-directional, meaning up and down shift without using clutch.
I have a 2014 model and was wondering if it can be installed on my bike? I know Suzuki sells it as an extra for the non R 2017 models. But will it work on the older models?

Probably not, I would imagine the engine mapping on decel/downshifting would need to be different, as there would need to be some sort of auto-blip feature to avoid overloading the rear wheel/slipper clutch.
