Would have to be the most stupidest question I've heard in ages.

The guys on www.gsxr.com spoke about reversing the gear shift linkage for 1 up, 5 down.

The question that really got me pissing my pants was ...



"Doesnt it put neutral in between 5th & 6th?"

:spit

:lol :lol :lol

That is kinda funny, but If I were a NEWB again, just purchased the bike, and heard someone talking about the shift pattern being set up "reverse" or "gp" style. I could see how that would get lost in the translation. Funny S*&t anyhow.

I used to have it on my old gixxer. Took my friends ST1100 out for a spin and when I went to upshift mid corner I went the wrong direction. Yes my friends, fear is backing a big ass sport touring bike into a corner.

I went home and put my gixxer back to normal and haven't looked back since. It was nice and I didn't miss shifts either but since every bike can't be that way and my brain doesn't operate like that I have to go one way or the other.

Not to mention I like to cruise along in 6th and when I need to pass someone I can bang down two gears real quick like and burn past them. Banging it up twice to go down twice is much slower and I'd not make it correctly sometimes. That was the only true downside to it.

I don't either...was casually going round the corner (curved road actually), shift, and whoa...wrong gear! I actually don't usually ride others bikes at all cuz I'm so terrified while I'm on it because I know it's their baby that I usually just turn down opportunities to ride them.

Oh yea, and when it was reversed, my neutral was still between 1st and 2nd for some odd reason even though it was upside down! :laugh

No, not all gixxer riders are that stupid....


as far as gp style, you get used to it. my streetbike has been like that forever, dirtbikes can't reverse..it's really not a big deal once you get on the bike with a particular pattern.

I won't let people ride my streetbike though that haven't used gp style before.
