GP shift?

Well I just got quoted 500+ USD to convert the F4 to GP shift and was wondering if anyone else had done so, or do most just opt for a aftermarket rearset with linkage that allows for GP? I really like the clean look, but for 500$ I could really use some adjustability.

I think Sato rear sets give you the option for reverse shift.

I pick mine up tomorrow. Will let you know the cost then. I was told it would be around $300. It depends on how much the labor per hour they charge.

That would be appreciated as I go up on Saturday for my first service. I will be waiting there as I am riding up.

You can do that, either by changing the gear control shaft with an upside-down (Part Nr. 8A0089414) or by changing the rearsets with one from aftermarket. By changing the shaft you keep the original rearsets, whereby the aftermarket rearsets will have a linkage.

how much is the part and how labor extensive is it?

If you want it and you are comfortable with it? Just turn the Gear head to 6 o'clock position you will get GP shift.

GP shift. Actually to clear the fairing you need to put the splined bracket near 5 o'clock with link attach point on motor side, and add some spacers on both ends. Otherwise it they will rub at two places noted in pix.
This is my Sato setup.

I had the factory reverse shift drum kit installed at my last service, I prefer that pattern. Cost was 3 hours labor ($264) and $226.11 in parts. Why did I do it this way? I prefer to minimize linkages since they just tend to add lash into the system. If you keep the shifter directly on the shaft there is crisper shifting. This is my $.02 so your experiences will vary.
