@ the track: Stock or MotoGP (reverse) shifting?

Was wondering what was everyone's preference?

So the question is which method do you use on the track . . . .and why?

Re: @ the track: Stock or MotoGP (reverse) shifting?

Personal preference. I use GP pattern because it makes upshifting so much easier, especially when hanging off for a right turn. But there are actually quite a few racers who use standard pattern - Matt Mladin and Chris Vermuelen both use standard, and it doesn't seem to be slowing them down too much.

Re: @ the track: Stock or MotoGP (reverse) shifting?

Thanks for sharing....I'm going to the track (Thunderbolt) for the first time in a couple of weeks and wasn't sure which set up to try.....I'm thinking for my first time I'd use the stock....its what I've been using so it'll be one less thing to worry about.

Eventually, though, I'm thinking I'll switch to MotoGP....once I get faster of course.

I wouldn't switch just before going to the track though. It takes a little while to get used to it. You don't want to get into a corner a little hot and start banging gears the wrong way.

Agreed
If your going to change the shift pattern, use it for some miles on the road first, to get used to it.

I use gp shift on mine.

I run standard shifting. I ride a bunch of different bikes and they are standard shift so it makes transitioning between bikes easier for me.

Blue because it is faster.

Re: @ the track: Stock or MotoGP (reverse) shifting?

Is there any benefit other than the comfort of shifting downward (pressing down but actually upshifting) mid-corner?
