Question GP Shift on RC51??? LDH, G-Man, Johnny B, MotoHead?

Nevermind, found it on LDH's RC51 site.



Any of you old timer Motorush guys remember the quick way to make the RC GP Shift? Wasnt it like a shift lever from a Superhawk or CBR1100XX??? I have some local Manufacturer rearsets that do not do GP Shift. Not much room on the RC to flip the lingkage anyway.

Does anyone know the correct Honda Part # for those levers?

I am entering an endurance race and the guys with whom I will be riding all ride GP shift so I need to learn it. We are using the RC as the bike so now is as good as any to change it.

I thought for sure it was a shift lever from a VFR.

yes...
both use a lever that is right off the shaft rather than linkage.

I've looked at the GP setup for the 9er, and it looks like it puts a lot of stress on the rear set shifter, with the push rod(?) being connected at such sharp angles. Anyone have any problems?

i'm on here every day, and i have read most of the posts about this set-up, i just figured, since the people who know all about the setup were already posting here, i'd ask a simple question and get a quick response. if you want, i'll start a new thread...

They both use the same part number...

Yes, they don't look the same because the image on the VFR fiche is from the 2004 and up and they have a different part number and different shape.

I'm just in awe how many guys can't find this info when it is blatantly on a website that does nothing but cater to the RC51...
