  • GP (reverse) shift pattern

    Anyone ever done this to their TL? Just curious how you liked it. I was thinking of trying it out....looks like it should only take a few minutes to flip the lever on the shifter shaft, or maybe there's something I'm not seeing.

    I think Jamie did it... heard quite a few reports of no problems, and it feels good. Just don't let someone else ride it.
    Used to ride a '01 TLR

        I did it on my RZ.. You REALLY gotta have it on all your bikes if you do it, and you have to train yourself for it. If you ride anyone else's bike you gotta be thinking about it too.

        It works great, just be careful

          Yeah, that's the only thing I was worried about (of course I can always switch it back). I've been riding for ~20 years now on 4-up, 1-down 4-up, 1-down 5-up, etc bikes and I think it'll take some getting used to, but I can definitely see the benefits. I'll try it out, thanks for the replies.

            Let us all know how you like it, I was thinking of doing that to my TLS also...

              You can do it to the TLS, but you have to chop the sprocket cover if you want to keep it on the bike. I will post some pics of my setup

                  yup, i have it on all my bikes. I find that it helps me from hitting neutrals in the tight hairpins.

                    if you race on the track the GP shifting allows you to shift up in the middle of a turn while hanging off the other side - without the GP shift pattern I cannot shift up through the turn and must sit up and shift and then hang off again - obviously not a fast way through the corner. I've used this pattern for years and years and still sometimes shift down when I meant to shift up - and it always happens on the cool down lap or Victory Lap (usually someone ELSE's) when my brain is in neutral !

                        I have allways done this mod to my bikes, on my tls I had to grind the back of the lever so I can retain the sprocket cover, just grind about 1-2 mm.

                        This reverse pattern helps on the start up to, not only to shift mid corner, I have never missed a shift from start up or drag racing.

                        Also helps on your weelies, if you can shift when your up there.... ja ja ja

                            I did it on my TLS ... it fits without grinding anything. You just have to adjust the length of the linkage, only about 1 or 2 mm of clearance tho. I prefer it personally much more positive upshifts.

                              Its easy just follow think linkage arm from the lever to the sprocket cover and you will find a swivell type fitting just below and to the right of the sprocket cover. Un do the pinch bolt take it right out, put the swivel thingo off and flip it over, check it goes on the right splines of the shaft so that your lever height is still ok and tighten the bolt back up... thats it.
