OK.... I made the decision. Reverse shift drum installed. Now waiting on clutch plates and a new master link for final assembly.
Now on to the rear hub and valve clearance inspection.
I'll post some photos ... easy job.

I know you have already changed the shift drum Ed.
Did you ever consider a Healtech Quickshifter like I have on my 1078.
I supposed it doesn't solve the issue of your toes under the pedal to upshift on L/H corners.
But does anyone upshift whilst cranked over through a corner?

Yes...There are frequent needs to upshift while still leaned over coming out of turns, especially increasing radius exits after the apex. Charlotte's Web at Barber is a prime example. Some track day organizers label the turn as 5a, 5b and 5c.
I have the Microtec 232 on Lola and was considering fitting a QS sensor. The Microtec supports it.... but I'm old school... like TR3 ;)

I cheated and fit rearsets to my Brutale and flipped the shift arm at the shifter spline. I understand it isn't so easy on the F4.

I love GP shift. I have it on my track bike (Ninja 400) and the Brutale. If I could easily add it to my Elefant and KTM i would. Should be the standard shift pattern in my opinion.

Not enough clearance to flip the shift shaft arm on the rear sets I have. And the linkage sometimes has a vague feeling. I'm going back to the stock shift lever and deleting the lever that attached to the rear sets.

Here's a photo of the standard and GP shift drums...the standard is on the left and has the machined groove at the end for ID:
