GP Shift... - September 1, 2009, 06:19 PM

Hey guys so my bike has GP shift (think thats what its called) 1 up 5 down

I figured they had to replace the gear box or something advanced that I didnt want to fool with...

But i saw this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/RS02-...=p4506.c0.m245) on ebay and these are my rear sets so my question is I noticed it said same as GP shift...

Can someone fill me in? Is it just the rear sets that changed my gears to 1 up 5 down or is it something else

because I would really like it back to 1 down 5 up considering thats how ive always rode and 1 up and 5 down kinda F*** me up sometimes..

Thanks

Edit.

2003 CBR 600RR

actually it's just a matter of changing the shift linkage on the rearset so that when you rock the sifter arm up or down it reverses the direction you are shifting on the transmission. Clockwise vs counter.

Best to start any mechanical or tech questions on here by giving year, make, and model of the bike you are talking about.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

My CBR 600 was a 97 so I can't quite picture your bike, but generally if you look at how the shifter linkage attaches to the transmission, it's just a rod and a clamp and the rod will sit either on the top of the clamp, or the bottom. Swapping it's position would change the direction it goes. I'd be willing to bet someone in your area could help take care of it pretty easily. It's not usually something that would cost money to do, but I think some bikes actually do require a different linkage for it.

Random image I found on google, but the knuckle where your shift rod connects is going to look something like this:


All you have to do is flip it in the opposite direction than what it currently is, so on the one in the picture it would go up. Check for clearances as some bikes require a different length shift rod to make the switch.

You can't flip that one...my advice, learn to ride GP. It's the best way anyhow.

Yep, if you can't make it work, put it back how it is now. I haven't seen one that looks exactly like yours but I'm guessing you might have to remove the plate the rod bolts through and flip it over and use the other hole for the linkage. But I wouldn't swear to it, I'm guessing by looking at a pic. I'd try it myself, but if it's all you have, make sure you carefully mark how it's set up now with whiteout or a marker or something so you can definitely put it back how it is if you cannot figure it out.

Is that an aftermarket linkage setup?
