Just came across a review of the 959 Panigale from a motovlogger (Taylor202). Just wanted to share it here with you guys.

He claims that the quick shifter is for up and down shifts. My understanding is thats not true. I use it for up shifts but I'm almost certain it does not work for downshifts. The slipper was was installed to assist instead.

Says it in the manual "up" only. You are correct.
Indeed. I wondered if perhaps there was a different spec depending on what country the bike was destined for. In any case, I've thankfully never attempted a clutchless downshift on my 959.

I still like the feeling of "blipping" the throttle during downshifts. I like the fact that the 959 doesn't have the auto-blip feature!

I blipped my Monster but I don't on this bike. I don't care for the ambiguity of the throttle on the 959. I need to get the spacers.

Go to either the 899 or 1299 forum and do a search on throttle slop. Plenty of info on there.
