EVOLUTION SHIFT STAR, GSX-R 600 / 750 / 1000 2000>
GSXR Transmission Shift Mechanism Kit
The “Paddle Shifter” for your foot -
The 00-05 750’s (and 1000’s and 600’s!) need help in shifting. Track tests report that 2nd gear had a repeatable ability to pop out into “neutral” under hard acceleration.
Aside from that, the late style gsxr shift action is very flat feeling and gives very little tactile feedback as to confidence that it’s really in gear or not. I hate it when you shift and you can hear the shift mechanism sort of lazily “kathwaka” into it’s final gear location. I like a confident, proper “snick”!
They had it so close to “almost good” in 98-99 – I’m not sure why they changed it for the “non-better”…. Oh well – After redesigning and testing and redesigning and testing, and redesigning and testing…… I now see how easy it is to get it wrong, though.
We have a new detent “star” with a copyrighted profile (yep, the “science failed, so, it’s artwork – so it’s copyrighted) that includes a particular combination of compound arcs and radii that produces a shift action that makes it almost impossible to miss a shift (“almost” is the key word here!), especially 2nd gear. At least, if you miss 2nd, now, you will be REALLY surprised – cause it’s now such a rare occurrence.
Downshifting confidence is 100% easier and better, also. Maybe that’s just as important as not missing upshifts!
Beautifully machined on 8 Axis CNC machinery, machined from solid CroMo steel bar stock, heat treated, Gold Zinc plated, a complex radii, beautiful part.
Best used with SHFT-PRO-06G-CER SHift Arm with Ceramic Bearing
