Sato Rearsets with GP shifting

Anybody with a 929 and Sato's with GP (reverse) shifting have a pic of their set up? I just switched mine to GP and I'm not sure what angle to set the gearshift lever. I'm also wondering if I have the gearshift arm and the adjustment rod set up right.

Re: Sato Rearsets with GP shifting

The arm from Sato that goes on the shifter shaft should be at a 90 degree angle to the link that goes to the foot shifter while in a stationary position.

Re: Sato Rearsets with GP shifting

The arm and the tab that hangs off the shifter should be as close to parallel as possible.

90 degrees to the link, but should the Sato arm be vertical (12 o'clock position)?

If I do that than the arm that connects to the shifter shaft won't be vertical (12 o'clock). Is that all right?

Dummy me pulled everything off without checking the relative positions of all the components first. Thanks for the help guys...

Re: Sato Rearsets with GP shifting

It doesn't need to be at 12 O'clock. In fact, it probably won't be if done correctly.

Re: Sato Rearsets with GP shifting

Found a pic on the Sato site. Their GP setup definitely doesn't have the shift lever and the connecting rod parallel. Sato GP shift
