Hi well the HM quick shift does not give a good smooth gear change no matter what settings
you use and i am sure that with prolonged use would lead to gearbox damage, i have heard of other desmo's suffering gearbox damage using the HM. I have used good quick shifts ranging from factory kit shifters to after market ones for years now having raced superbikes here in Aus for 15 years and the HM simply is not up to scratch especially on the Desmo and was a waist of money, i can actually change gears without the HM & Clutch much better than with the HM . My HM was fitted by Ducati who's technician is specially trained to work on the desmosedici even he advised me to remove it. HM is crap
