Switching to GP Shift.

Just had it done today, no need to buy an extra part for that. Feels so much better, I'll take a picture of where the change needs to be if people need are interested

I've never understood those who preferred reverse shifting, but I suppose its all based upon your riding habits and use. Is it safe to assume you plan on doing some track days aha? Looking forward to seeing the mod, glad to see its a simple swap.

GP shifting is generally preferred on race tracks because it's easier to shift while entering/exiting sharp turns. But really down to personal preference I suppose and I wouldn't say no to a picture either.

Left hand turn, knee dragging & you need to upshift a gear itís a little easier to click down as opposed to reaching your boot under the shifter and clicking up.

Having said that, there are a few holdouts in WSBK / Grand Prix racing that still prefer standard shift

We need details

How exactly?
No issues with quick shifter?

Alright I'll take a picture of the location when I get home, it's just simply bolting to a different point on the rear set.

Iím keen to see how this is done, does the quick shift need resetting as itís working in opposing directions now?

Thanks for the heads up. Interested to see what exactly was involved in the mod. Do you complete yourself or did you have someone do it?

Just picked up panigale v4s . Looking to switch to GP shift . Am I correct in thinking you just have to move the position from the top hole to the bottom hole where the shift linkage is mounted ? Any help from anyone who has already done this or any pics would be greatly appreciated! Thanks !!!
