Re: 954 gp shift?

I know on the 929 you had to buy the shift lever off the VFR. Try to search for it on here you should be able to get the part #. I think it was under $20 at the dealer and took 5 min to swap out.

VFR shifter works perfect for the 954.

Re: 954 gp shift?

I'm afraid to ask, in case a dumb question, but alas, I will!
" Reverse the shift " ?
Normal is 1-6 up, so it can go 1-6 down?

Re: 954 gp shift?

Well, technically its up to first, then down to sixth, but yes. The VFR shifter eliminates the linkage from the stock 954 rearset and attaches directly to the shifter rod.

What year of VFR800? I've got a 99. Last time I looked at it, the VFR800 shift lever attaches directly to the gear spindle. Everyone who has done this mod, does it make a difference in foot position compared to the right side?

Foot positions remains the same. You don't actually move the rearset. All you do is take off the shift rod and shifter. Replace it with the VFR shift lever connected directly to the gear spindle. You can leave the rearset as is or you can put spacers in place of the original shift lever.

Re: 954 gp shift?

why the hell is this the best single mod to a sportbike??? I could understand if it came with a huge sticker to up the hp, but seriously, riding on the street when do you ride hard enough that you have to shift in a turn and can't because your that low. I don't think so.
