Take a look at the shifter spline that goes into the transmission. Clamped onto the shifter spline is a lever where the shift linkage connects. Rotate that lever 180 degrees on the spline.

Flip the shifter mechanism over. If you're looking at the shifter side of the engine, the shifter rod connects to the shifter mechanism that is connected to a spline and held on by a pinch bolt.

Use a 10mm to remove the pinch bolt and completely remove it. Take the shifter arm off the spline and flip it opposite of the way it is (it should be "pointing" up, flip it so it "points" down).

You'll probably have to adjust the shifter rod length afterwards.

It's pretty subjective, I really hate it, but Brandon really likes it.
Gabe McClendon doesn't like it either, but most of the rest of his teammates on the LSTD endurance team do.

On most bikes it's pretty easy to do yourself, the biggest thing to do is to remember that you upshift going down now.
Till you build the muscle memory, you'll need to be a bit more conscious of it.

Yep, you've got it.

And like was sadi earlier, you may need to break your shift rod adjustment nuts loose to perfectly position your shift pedal for your foot.
don't forget that one of them is reverse thread so righty loosen on that one.
It's usually the one furthest from the engine.

I really like it at the track. On the street, I couldn't really care either way.


I like it for upshifting while cranked over in a corner- I don't like my foot under the shifter in a corner.

You need it on the track when accelerating hard out of a turn with the bike leaned way the over and you are about to smack the rev limiter. Much easier to push down rather than get your big boot under the shifter to pull up.

I like it.

At a light in neutral sux to take that extra second to pull up then to just randomly stab down. Other then that I like mine.

i made the switch a few months ago.....no complaints yet.

took me 2 trackdays to not screw up shifts....but when you get it down....it makes riding certain tracks a whole lot easier.

well i was riding around today for about 30 min trying to build some muscle memory! i think the hardest part is just shifting from 1st to 2nd. Im used to pulling up for upshifting now i gotta learn to shift down to go faster. i think it will be ok.

its def. IMHO gonna be easier shifting to higher gears when leaned over in a corner

ill report back in about a week or so with more updates

Just short shift while you are learning Diamonds Edge has been particularly entertaining for me in the last couple of outings. Instead of downshifting to 1st from 4th, I end up shifting into 6th..... arg.
