Quick shifter on GP shift rod for R6 and R6s

I was wondering has anyone put a quick shifter on a r6 with a gp shift rod. I have been looking but can't figure it out. My shift rod runs out side my frame up to the linkage. Any ideas or if someone has already done this any help would be great thanks

Re: Quick shifter on GP shift rod for R6 and R6s

The shift rod is the same regardless of whether you run standard for GP shift, that just determines which quickshift unit you will need; push or pull. If you have GP shift, you would need a push type.

You may need to make your own connections for the QS to the shift rod. Like cut the section of rod out, thread it and put the QS on

I doubt it's gonna be $15 for the one that travels outside the frame.

Re: Quick shifter on GP shift rod for R6 and R6s

I paid 24 shipped for my woodcraft one...

Its unique to theirs because of their right hand/left hand threaded male ends on the rods.

AND FYI again... its a pull rod for the woodcraft GP shift.

So if anyone needs the A and C dynojet shift rods with both right hand thread female ends.

Re: Quick shifter on GP shift rod for R6 and R6s

I had to make my own. I am running GP shift with a dynojet QS on my 07 R6. The stock shift rod is way too long. I am sure you could buy one too

Re: Quick shifter on GP shift rod for R6 and R6s

So yah I currently have the woodcraft gp shift rod that runs outside the frame. Also yes it looks like I might have to cut out a section of the rod to me the quick shifter fit. I'm worried will this cause a weak link in the rod that could snap? If you've already done this can you pose up a pic so I can get a idea of what I'm dealing with here. Thanks for all the help guys

Don't mind all the oil on my bike, had a little problem lol

You can see here how I did mine. I used a random shorter shift rod then extended using an automotive stuf and a long coupling (look at the bottom) I drilled out the ends of te rid a tapped them for the thread size/pitch i needed. Works perfect and cost me $5 to make.

Just call woodcraft they have their own rod specifically for the Quickshifters.
