Negative there girly. Just flip the shift arm over at the top where it actually holds the rod going into the engine. Standard shift it will point to the rear, GP it points forward. Or vice versa........No aftermarket rear sets needed.

Hmmm, let off the throttle more? It shouldn't be difficult on an upshift irrespective of a slipper clutch. A slipper helps when you downshift, and you can't do that without the clutch. At least I can't.

if you bend the shaft at both ends. It won't rub. That is how I did it on mine.

clutchless is possible both up and down..
once you learn it,you realize how much time it takes to pull the lever.

Do racers clutchless downshift alot? I hear them blipping the throttle, and that's not a clutchless shift is it?

I will have it soon. I'm building rear sets for my Bonnie. Replacing my shift lever with one from a T150 and flipping it back ward.

So now I will be shifting with the wrong foot backward. Love it.

Been racing/riding standard shift for years........ and if it's good enough for Mladin and Biaggi, it's good enough for me.

I don't think I explained myself very well! All my shifting has become easier since the install of the slipper clutch!! Upshifts, downshits, clutchless or not!! I have VERY small feet and before it took a bit of pressure to shift!! Now it takes a lot less pressure and it is much more smooth!!

Do what feels best for you but the vast majority of professional road racers use a GP shift.
Most also use the clutch on the downchange.
I use a road pattern cause it's what I'm comfortable with it and make enough mistakes without thinking about which way to go with my gears
