I don't have my bike just yet and I have been asking around to people about what the "pass" trigger on the front of the left handle does.

If you guys know, please tell me.

Thanks!

EDIT: Just kidding, figured out that it just flashes the lights as a passing indicator, I would delete this thread, but just incase anyone else was wondering, here ya go!

I assume that it simulates downshifting by boosting up the RPMs but I really am not sure. Also, if it does do that, then I don't know if it is a hold down function to pass or a push on push off kind of thing or what.

If you guys know, please tell me.

Thanks!

I really had no clue, I thought it wouldn't be completely insane to have a trigger that somehow has the capability of temporarily increasing RPMs somehow.
I didn't think it was like a nitro boost or anything, just something that would possibly control the fuel going to the engine that would produce a faster engine speed. Kind of like a choke but obviously aimed at engine performance speed rather than a cold start lol.

=) Yes, it activates the flashers , would be pretty sweet though huh? :p maybe next years model. hehe
lol well my dad is getting the 2012 FZ6R by this weekend because he wanted to trade in his cruiser for a sport bike so that we would both be able to ride sport bikes together and he misses his VFR. So if I need that extra 300cc then I have a bike for that;) lol

Funny thing though is that I am going to be using that 600cc bike to practice for me 300cc since I do not have it yet.

A "passing trigger" just flashes the lights so cars know your passing them, I don't think the 300 has one.

It does have a completely insane trigger to increase the RPM for passing, it's called the "shifter", if you need a little extra speed, just "shift" into a lower gear and pin it. :D

I identified that I found out what it was, but thanks for the sarcasm.

edit: You also quote passing trigger as if it is an incorrect name, what would you call it?

"You remember the little red button?"
"Yeah?"
"PUSH the little red button."

The 300 does have a passing trigger. It's on the left handle bar closest to your pointer finger.

Actually...

There's an undocumented feature.

Depress the switch three times in rapid sucession.

Then delay for a count of 2 (2 seconds).

Then press and hold for 2 seconds and release.

(Got this from a guy at Kawasaki U.S. hq here in Irvine.)

No, passing trigger I believe is the correct name, just the shifting part was sarcasm. ;)
