+1 on the locktight. I rode my F3 with GP shift for 7 years and loved it. It takes some seat time to get used to though. Hope you like it.

I've had to b/c of my bad foot position. Its been tough up shifting through turns. I tried it on the mini and loved it after about 20 or so laps so figured i'd try it for a bit and see.

result of bad foot position:

i've kicked my boots before on the Kat(lowered) coming around to woodlands parkway and I've raised my foot everytime since in a harder turn; so makes sense to switch to a gp... Im still debating it...

I've known about GP shifting for a while and would like to try it but the FZ6 has a channel that runs through the frame and will not allow it to be changed around. I bet I would like it though.

I wish it was as easy to swap the 675 to GP as it is the F4i

I love GP shift. For me, it was easy to get used to when riding normal, but it's when I started going fast that I had problems because you start doing things without thinking about them, ie things that you've been used to for years. I always caught myself and never let the clutch out though.
