Has anyone set up a GP style reverse shift? How did that go?

I remember doing it on my K6 Gixxer just for shits and giggles - it was very easy.

30+ years of one down and 5 up was very difficult to overcome, though...

I changed it back to stock....

Im using Attack rearsets with reverse shift selected, been riding like this for couple of decades in different bikes ( CBRs & R1s ) now. It suits me really well. It makes really easy to get out of the track bike to the street one.

The only downfall is ( to me at least ) it makes even more selective to let friends taking your bike for a ride since there is aways a fear that the muppet will select second gear thinking is first, gun it and pull first (one up) instead of "second" if you get the picture....not pretty.... Lol

At least with the attack rs , my bike is behaving perfectly, no stalls, false neutrals, etc, nothing but perfect and really fast up( down) shifts. Plus, on this rearsets you can even adjust the quickshifter rod to make the shifts quicker, with less lever movement or longer requiring a longer lever travel. I love it ;)

Hope it helped

Cheers

Reverse shifting (1 up & 5 down) is on my mind and I recall seeing it on a video stating my bike has this feature but having trouble finding the how to swap in my manual.  Any Lady or Gent S1R rider out there that has done it could walk me through?  Much appreciated.

Thank you!  Just so I understand the sketch. Unscrew shifter, screw in vacant hole, and followed by some blue Loctite for added insurance?

Correct. GP shifting takes a little time to get used to. Makes for very quick up shifting.

Very cool & thanks! Im sure it is but I want to give it a shot. I suspect my 15 years of riding 1up & 5 down are going to be a tough habit to break.
