Reverse shift or GP shift mod, CBR 1000, 2009
Thanks to all who posted pics of the way this turned out on their bikes. Here's what mine looks like. I was up till 4am doing this, so I didn't have time to make the edges look "all pretty" with a file yet. That will come later. I might end up using a little red nail polish around the edges of where it's cut away in front of the chain. DANGER DANGER!! Ha ha! I have read some posts about "just remove the sprocket cover" and would strongly advise against this. The drive sprocket is very near your vent hoses, and if you wear loose fitting pants it could be disastrous. I wear a suit when I drive during the work week - I need the protection.
Used a Dremel, modified the chain / sprocket cover. Here's a tip for anyone doing this - THE THREAD PATTERN ON THE SHIFT LINKAGE IS REVERSED. When you go to loosen the locking nut and remove the top linkage that attaches to the transmission spline, know that it is a reverse thread.
I'm very happy to have this! I rode my 929 for 10 years like this. I don't want to swap out the rearsets as I like the folding pegs. They always creep up against my heels when I put my feet down.
I'm short, I can't widen my stance enough to avoid the pegs, so the folding pegs are a must for me.
