As of 5 minutes ago I'm now GP shift. I'll try it out over the next week and determine if I want to switch back or not.

Re: Official "GP Style Shifting" count

I don't know what all this rod bending is about. Mine is still straight and just goes outside of the frame. I wrecked and bent the rearset in a little so my shift rod rubs a little every once in a while, but no big deal.

But I've ordered the woodcraft gp shift rod for $25 to try out go shifting next year. The downshifts are what concern me though, like melkman was talking about.
I bent the shift rod on mine over a year ago using the rim on my jeep. It still goes through the frame and I moved the linkage about 90 degrees. Works great! I put a write up on here when I did it and got $h!t on because people said it wouldnt work or would break my tranny. Been ridden hard on both street and track with no problems!
