Shift Drum vs. Satos/Gilles

Looking to reverse the shift pattern on my 312 (to Reverse/GP Shift). I've read on this forum that there are 2 ways to do this (1) get a shift drum or (2) get Sato/Gilles rearsets.

Which do you guys recommend? My current dilemma is that the Sato/Gilles may be best performance wise, but I'm very hesitant to put non-MV parts on my MV (kinda like altering a Picasso piece).

Finally, where can I buy the shift drum?

Thanks!

I wouldn't be reluctant to change the rearsets, personaly I think MV (and Ducati) put crap rearsets (in both look and function) on their sports bikes.

IMHO changing the drum is the way to go and you don't have to worry about the linkage, looks cleaner and performs better.

reverse drum is about $160,http://mvagusta.net/forum/showthread...ighlight=corse but the installation can cost quite a bit of money depending where you have it done... I just wrapped up the installation myself and it took me about 1 & 1/2 day! check my album for some pics... http://gallery.mvagusta.net/odonata_reverseshift

I have changed also the drum (not myself) and the costs: part/labour, was the same (3 hours).

Ask RobP. He had his drum done at Munroe's in San Fransisco.

I still have to test ride it but it is shifting through the gears without problems.

3 hours? that is lightening fast, clearly they are experienced and your money well spent!
