Question HELP! GPshift 08 600rr??

I flipped the bracket to reverse my shift pattern but now the rod is all wedged against hoses, is this OK or bad for the hoses?? The rod only moves about 1/4" up and down, but just seems slightly in a bind.



Anybody??



Thanks!

You should get the aftermarket kit man, it clears the stuff you're hitting iirc.

In some cases, as I did with my GSXR, you can bend the rod slightly- enough to clear, but not enough to hurt the shifting. You can also move the "arm" on the spline a bit to make the shifter rod angle better.

True... but for the best shift quality you would want the shift arm to the side for the most amount of throw/effort.

Can you move the hoses?

Do a search. Someone just went thru this a while back and there was a whole post complete with pics, showing how to re-route the hoses.

Will be the same, only thing different between the 07 and 08 600rr is the color schemes.

I suggest just getting vortex rear sets. you can flip the knuckle around and its done. Prolly get a used pair for less than 300.00

If the bikes you are riding are significantly differently you can ride and exchange without much thinking. Your primary will always be second nature, all secondaries you'll have to think a little. After about 5-10 minutes of riding a standard shift I fall back into the groove with it.

Yeah, I've rode gpshift before and it was easy, but had to think or else might drop it in wrong gear.

yeah same link. I did not like the way it was rubbing. Could not find a way to tie it out the way good enough. Eventually got a pc and q.s. so i went with vortex rear sets for the flk-n win!
