Based on your description, I agree that it sounds like a possible clutch problem. I think it would be a mistake to try to solve / avoid a clutch problem with shift assist, but I fully support your desire to have shift assist. It is always difficult to help solve any mechanical problem using word descriptions. Good luck.

Let me get this straight the hp shift assist can't be used from 1st to 2nd gear?
LOL, it's a load of shit, you can use it 1-2 at 3K if you like. Shit, you can run from 0-25 Mph shifting 5 times. Both of my K1300S's were quick-shifted 100% of the time at every throttle opening and RPM without any issues. As long as the bike is accelerating at all, you're good.

Installation instrutions for a K1200R

Ohhhh, that looks sweet. Went down the rabbit hole and found that it can be installed on the K1200GT, and hooks into the fuel injectors by the throttle bodies. Just €306 from the factory. Do I need it, no, do I want it, hell yes :)
Couldn't help myself, pulled the trigger.
It will arrive in two weeks, and it will be a while before I can get a chance to fit it.
Will let you know the results.

The Healtech looks like it is fully adjustable with respect to engagement pressure and ignition timing? That might be a leg up on the OEM shift assist.

I believe I said could be done but not recommended. One should probably not consider the manufacturers operating manual a load of shit unless you are willing to be back on the forum looking for help to explain why something is broken then we can "LOL".
