Lightbulb Calling GP Shifting Riders

Hey guys,
So, I am working with a couple of machinists on making a little kit to enable the switch to be made to GP shifting with the standard rearsets, WITHOUT having to put the shift rod outside of the frame. I have searched and read through all the threads where people just reversed the linkage and the rod connection to the lever. We have some ideas, but I would like anyone with GP shifting rearsets (especially the Gilles tooling rearsets!!!!) to post some pictures of them with several angles of the components involved. I am especially interested in the Gilles tooling design because we are kind of headed in that direction a little bit, just gathering ideas. I am not trying to copy Gilles's design or anything, just trying to pool ideas and come up with a simple, and effective solution to this. So please, if you got 'em, post 'em up. Thanks.

I came up with an idea for a machined part that would be able to work with the stock rod (with only a very slight mod to it) but still keep it going through the stock position of the frame. I am going to talk to the machinist-engineer guys when I get a chance to see what they've come up with. Can you post some pics up though? With some different angles of connections of the lever, rods, mounting points etc...?

Oh, I got ya. Well, if you're going to get the attack rearsets, then you can just get them in GP shift. I am looking to switch over using the stock rearsets. I don't want to buy new ones. My track bike that I just purchased will be GP shift, and I want to get used to it on my street bike and have both set up the same. I spoke to the engineers and looks like we may have a good idea. Will be really simple, and best of all, really cheap.

Any progress on this? I'm looking for an affordable way to go GP shift with my stock rearsets. Subscribed

Remove heel guard. Flip knuckle. Rotate arm 180 degrees. Shift rod will run outside of frame. Total cost = free.99

If gp shifting is better on the track and for sporty twisty riding why dont they make the sport bike come with it standard? I always wondered this.

Eh I think it's more of a preference thing. Plus dirt bikes come standard shift.
