Re: Official "GP Style Shifting" count
got a chance to change mine to gp shift today.
after getting sidi boots a few months ago i've been having issues upshifting. every time i rode with my girlfriend on the back she would always ask if something was wrong with the bike... "no i just can't feel the lever so i f up all the up shifts."
today we went out and had no problem. the cool thing is i only have trouble feeling the lever when i get my boot under the lever. so when i mess up a downshift now it obviously isn't as noticeable when messing up an upshift. when accelerating and running through the gears it makes things so much easier now. i'll be out again tomorrow to get some more time to play with it. i think this may be a keeper.
only issue i had was when i forgot about the gp shift and slowed down for a 5 mph turn and realized i was in 6th gear...
