fairing mod for rearsets

I decided to run race pattern (GP pattern) on the F4 (all other bikes except one are race pattern), opted for and purchased Gilles Tooling black rear sets Fitted them only to find that the fairing wouldn't go on without cutting a hole to allow for the lever from the engine and the linkage to the footpeg to function.

Opted to cut the hole which weekend the fairing near the belly pan and looked ugly.

The solution was to 'weld' a new section to the fairing so that it looked like it was an 'original bump'

Fine, fine work. You be da' man.

I had to mod a set of Satos on my Tambo for the same problem. I modified the shift arm to clear the inside of the fairing instead.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Looks good.

I was thinking of getting these rearsets to use as reverse shift.
I was just wondering if it was possible to put the shift rod on the other side(right side) of the shift knuckle so it would be closer to the bike and not hit the fairing.
I assume you would have already tried this before but I was curious as to why it is not possible.

Three Two one,

I don't know about the Gilles but like I said I did just what you're pondering to some Satos. Had to modify the trans shiftarm to clear the fairing but it was easy fish and works just dandy. I assume the same could be done to any rearset shifter.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Umm... The work looks fantastic, but wouldn't it be easier to use the reverse shift drum?
