quick shifter. I put a momentary micro switch in my shifter peg but I haven't had time to try it out yet.

Way back when we used the neutral switch (two wire i believe) on a shovelhead trans with a shift drum. Power to coil through the switch. We added detents in each gear position for the switch ball to reside in. Tuned the "cutout" time by shimming switch in/out with the sealing gasket. Seemed to work pretty good.
Not sure how extensive your looking to go.
Just an option
