Another reason is when racers are upshifting at full lean, their foot isn't under the lever reducing ground clearance.Originally posted by Kow wee
RACERS do it because when you kick down into a gear, you for sure know it's in that gear, and prevents miss shifting and FALSE NEUTRALS... also it's easier when in full tuck to just tap down rather than having to swing your foot around the shifter... and when you slow down you move foward on you bike so your foot is in a better possition to kick it up.... and the number one reason I have it set on my bike... so squids can't steal it...
all you have to do is just get used to moving back on your bike when accelerating, and moving penis to take when slowing down... that helped me get used to it faster....
It's a very easy switch and there is a good "how to" with pics. I did mine and love it. It's great for the track and it doesn't take long to get used to.Originally posted by Mandrews
i have an 06 636
i have a friend who works at a bike dealership and owns an 05 636 he told me that if i rotated the shift linkage 180 degrees it would reverse my shift to 1 down and 5 up, he said he did on his 636 anyone know how true this is??
