Default Reverse shift drum installed! 2010 F4

Hey guys, anyone interested? I just completed the installation of a reverse shift drum on my 2010 F4 at 600 miles. I can answer questions if you have any.

Well actually, Gazman, I refered to the optional shift-drum as a "Reverse shift drum" for anyone wanting to order it.

Thats what it is.

You are correct. It changes the shift pattern to 1 up-5 down, the main advantage being that "up-shifts" can be easily be accomplished while still at near full lean angle, exiting a corner, without getting your foot caught under the shifter, as with a "standard street pattern", where you have to wait until you can "pick-up" the bike alot more before up-shifting, spoiling your drive off the corner, and all the way down the next straightaway.

Also commonly refered to as "G.P. shift pattern" or "Race Shift Pattern", The part is available from the factory, or thru Ferracci for about $225.00

Also with the Shift-Drum it will be required to change the Gear Selector Sensor on the left side of the bike, to the compatable "race-version" shift drum, so that the electronics can properly read what gear your actually in. (dashboard indicator, and traction control performance).
The Sensor is about $70.00.

It's a fairly easy installation, a shop manuel is invaluable, and i got bye with re-useing the counter-shaft "tab-washer" and clutch case paper gasket, but its better to replace them.

You can go to your local MV dealer and they can get the parts for you. Shift drum, New Sensor, counter shaft tab washer, clutch case gasket, oil filter, and new drive chain masterlink.

Installation depends on your mechanical abilities, available tools, and a factory shop manual, which i feel every one should have, if your going to be working on your own bike. Its very well detailed and has all the torque spec's for every nut and bolt, which i feel is invaluable.

i actually preformed the installation without the shop manual, and I wouldnt reccomend this because quite alot of the parts need to be removed and re-installed properly to the right torque values, I wasted alot of time without the manual.

It just wasnt availabe to me in time, and i didnt want to wait.

To give you an idea of some of the procedures required:

Drain-Oil
Remove Counter Shaft nut (big air impact driver)
Break Drive Chain
Drain Radiator
Remove Exhaust Manifolds
remove Clutch Slave Cylinder
remove L/H cases and Water-Pump case and hoses
remove gear selector cases
remove clutch case cover
remove Clutch basket (clutch-hub holder and air impact driver)
remove oil pump gear
and then you can finally remove the Cassette-type gear box and access the stock shift drum.

this is just a basic over-view to help you decide if you want to tackle the job your self or go straight to you local AUTHORIZED DEALER for a Quote.

Personally, I wasnt comfortable with the street patten shifting as iv'e been roadracing since 1983 on alot of G.p. two strokes and Superbikes that all had a reversed shift pattern. so i just couldn't keep my head wrapped around doing what needs to be instinctive, shifting with-out have to concentrate on the pattern i wasnt used to.

the only other benifit comes on the Race Track.
