GP shifting on a 02 R1 how
« on: December 10, 2006, 11:17:45 am »
its been awhile since ive been in racing, and ive found myself looking at a R1 for some track day/ back road riding, but i like the GP shift pattern over the standard. as i looked at the 02 R1 i may be possibly getting, i noticed the shifting linkage and how it isnt going to be just flip the arm on the shift shaft and head on out, like on my last racer the F2/3 or on my long time gsxr 1100.

now i know some how some where somebody must make something to convert it to GP shifting. so what im wondering is who makes them where can i get them and how much are they.

thanks for any info on this. :cheers:

I'm picturing you typing this question as the Woodcraft banner ad flashes away vainly at the top of your screen.... ::)  :lmao:

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

No need to buy anything for the 02 R1 to convert to GP shift... atleast not a kit.... U were right.  Rotate the lever over and flip the arm....  However it will rub the frame a bit (the rod that is)  I shimmed my rearset out about 2mms to make sure it barely misses the frame.  Bought 2 new bolts for the rear set mount to the frame 5mm longer then stock.....   Works great.  Total cost about $2.29 and about 20 mins fo work....
