I got this a few years ago and just never got around to installing it. The quickshifter works for both up and down, which is pretty unique.

$150 - PM or post up if interested.

This kit is good to go for a 1st gen? These just use a strain gauge, correct? Is installation as simple as wiring to 12V source and the coil power supply?

You would need to sort out how you want to wire it into the SV. On my RVF I was planning to wire it into the tail light for powered 12V and use the side stand switch for the cut-off, but you can do it via the coils. These aren't really strain sensors like bazzaz, translogic, etc., but work by sensing the deformation via the pinch bolt on the shift lever. This quote by Starlane explains it pretty well,
POWER SHIFT VX is based on the fact that its patented sensor can sense, while shifting, the deformation of the lever on the point where it’s
locked to the shaft.
The sensor replaces the fixing bolt of the lever and continuously sends to the control unit of POWER SHIFT a signal that changes according to
the force applied on the lever.
Here's some information on the quickshifter: http://www.starlane.com/ftp/manuali/Power_Shift_VX_07E.pdf

I'll look into it more today, but would the habit of preloading the shifter cause any issues or can the sensor differentiate between that and an actual shift?

Good question. I never installed it, so can't really answer that. I imagine you have to be able to set the sensitivity on it, but would have to look at the manual to confirm.
