Re: Official "GP Style Shifting" count

I've been considering the GP shift on my 05, but it is my understanding the standard shift rod will now work due to it passing through the frame.

I plan to upgrade my rearsets, and will most likely give GP shift a try. The only bike I've ridden with GP shift is my roommate's Daytona 675. I took to it naturally, but this was light riding through town. I'm sure there would be an adjustment period before I would really want to push on GP shift.

Re: Official "GP Style Shifting" count

Also GP shift here. Have been for a few years.

I actually asked the dealer to flip the rod for me while prepping my R1 when I picked it up back in 2010. They said they had no idea what I was talking about, so I went back to the garage and asked for the allen wrech that fit then flipped that shyt myself before I even left the parking lot.

The VERY FEW times that I've had my bike at the shop I have had to put a BIG piece of masking tape across my tank saying UPSIDE DOWN SHIFT PATTERN. Because the one time I didn't do that, some ass clown mechanic couldnt understand why my bike kept bogging down and stalling in "first gear" haha. 'Tard

Shiney up Rubber down




PHANTOM.... DID YOU BUY A BIKE YET?

Re: Official "GP Style Shifting" count

i wonder if this could be a possible "anti-theft" feature. i mean, if they are going to try to ride it away it wouldnt work very well at first considering they wouldnt know how to shift.
