Shifter Mod

has anyone tried flipping their shift over to change the gear pattern on their bike. i have my shift linkage flipped over on my cbr to make my gears 1 up and 5 down. was just wondering if i can do the same with this bike.

If ou like a race pattern, and intend to stay with the set up, do yourself a favour and remove the linkages and just fit a new shifter straight off the spline.

I found the OEM joints in the linkages to have a lot of play in them, and the shift was imrpoved greatly by fitting heim joints in their place. I put up a article on hear a couple of years ago on how to do it. Makes a nice difference.

In your case if you fit a new shifter, you can get an even better result, as you will have a direct force on the spline without any linkages.

I agree totally with shayne. I made some rearsets for my ducati and ran a shifter directly off the splines. No play what so ever and I love the shift pattern.

I took up Jim TT's suggestion about fitting a shift lever from a 94 VFR750. It works fine if you've got small feet and it's got novelty value. My write up which understandably failed to elicit any comment can be found by searching this site for VFR750.
