How to: GP Shift 07/08 CBR 600rr

Decided to make a video explaining how to GP shift a 07/08 600rr.


Figured I'd help others since I couldnt seem to find videos for 07/08 models on the net. Thanks a ton for the guys who helped me out with this.

Go Pro version.


Little better quality. Gloomy day so cameras wouldn't really focus up much. Go pro original video had way better quality but my video uploader brings quality down when uploading.

Nice video!

However, the finished product looks completely ghetto rigged IMO.

In persoan it actually doesnt look bad at all luckily the finished spray coat is the exact color of the metal parts and the rubber hose is the exact color of the radiator hoses.

Showed 3 people and non of them even noticed until I pointed it out.




Hardly noticeable when the whole bike is in the picture. IMO. You could always not pull the hoses back. Not sure if it will cut the hoses after time. Rather be safe then sorry.

how long did it take to get used to the new shift pattern? I feel like i would be constantly messing up and doing wrong shifts.

Well it's been 2 days and only ridden it once to try it out. I like it at first but like you said every now and then I always want to up shift when I think I'm downshifting lol

Yea the shift pattern gets me time to time. I'm still use to down shifting to press down not up. Only thing I have against it. But hopefully I'll learn

Is it necessary to move the hoses?

You don't HAVE to but I'd rather be safe than sorry and have the rod cut through the hoses and lose coolant and possible get on the back tire.

Metal vs rubber metal will always win the wear game. Just a matter of how long it will last before it wears away.

UPDATE: ive been riding this set up for about a month now and I'm fully use to it. No mid shifts anymore and it's second nature to me now. Took a good 2 and a half weeks of about 2 mile rides to work to get use to it. So if you have longer trips learning this it will probably take even less of a time.

If your scared I say to for it definantly a lot easier for me personally to shift and feels more natural to push down to shift up and pull up when down shifting.

done!!! this setup, I feel, is a lot better for me... shifting to high gears is a breeze... stalled once... and thats cuz I forgot the kick stand was down...

actual setup did not take to long... just a lot of adjusting for footing to be placed comfortably for me...

So i just switched my shift linkage to GP style and i know some of you mentioned pulling the coolant hoses forward with a zip tie or something equivalent... but i seen that some also didnt like this idea cause it looks "messy".... well this is what i did... i doubled up a plastic wire loom and cut it to size where the linkage makes contact and zip tied... looks cleaner and can be replaced easily is by chance it rubs through..

Yeah, this would take me like 2 hours of just going around the parking lot trying to break a 4 year old habit. This is a really sweet video though. I had no idea it was that easy. Might have to try it out for the fun of it.

I was thinking.. If you were going to pull the coolest line for the belt anyway, did anyone try rereouing the larger one under smaller hose and see if you get the Clearance you need. Just a thought. Great video btw....

Dude hell yeah I had no idea it was that easy to just flip it around. I'm definitely going to have to give this a try! Also gsxr's suggestion about the plastic tubing is a great one.

Thanks man, liked and favorited (well added to my motorcycle playlist).

Great video!

It takes a little time, you will mess up for a while, but, eventually youll find it easy, just a little patience.

Its not really getting used to gp pattern, its more like changing to a different gearbox.

After a while you can ride just fine one weekend, then the next weekend ride motorcross, normal pattern ofcourse, with no issue what so ever

nice vid dude. ghetto as f*** but not every one has $400 bucks for new rear sets. Just a thought. I took off the small fairing piece that covers the heat shield (and my heat shield). You could use that little piece and cut and sand it and make it fit between the hoses and the shift rod. Spray paint it black, and use black zip ties, and you could really clean that up, and the shift rod would be rubbing on harmless plastic.

I also did this mod on my bike and I am riding it for 2 years now that way. By the way it is easy to get usd to the reverse shift pattern and I like it more than the factory one. I also plan to make a nice panel to keep the hose away from the shifting rod a bit, the panel itself will be mounted to the generator cover. Anyone interested?
