Has anyone ever put a reverse shift pattern on their Strom? I have two sportbikes with reverse shift patterns and I'd like to be consistent so as to avoid shifting mistakes.
no its not common. on the street it will give you absolutly nothing of benefit. you will normally only come across it from people that have spent time at the track. on the track it allows you to upshift leaned over without putting your toe under the shifter, which is very very useful since a RS125 doesn't have alot of room when leaned all the way over. i started revsering mine when i started riding on the track, and i really like to keep the shift patterns the same on the track bikes as the street bike to avoid unpleasent mistakes.Is this a common modification? I've never heard of anyone doing this. What are the benefits? I would assume quicker shifts?
Just reverse the little arm that's connected to the shift shaft. It's pointing up now, rotate 180° so it points down.I know this is an old thread, but can somone explain to me how to reverse the shift pattern on a 650? I just picked a 650 up and all my bikes (street and track) have been reversed for the last 8 years or so...the ride home was interesting.
common only on sportbikes, but I prefer it myself. cause I got used to itIs this a common modification? I've never heard of anyone doing this. What are the benefits? I would assume quicker shifts?
