New shift system for the S1000RR

If anyone remembers back a few months ago, I wrote of my troubles with the shifting on my new 2012. After trying to purchase a more "solid" shifting setup for my bike and coming up empty, I decided to design and manufacture my own.

My design is similar to other offerings but has been redesigned where it counts; It fits! It also offers a unique design in the way the lever position is adjusted. There are numorous other modifications in design as well. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone might have.

I have just finished my first production run of parts and decided to show a couple of pictures and see what everyone thinks. I still have to send the parts out for anodizing. I should have everything back by this Friday, complete and ready to go.

Positive comments as well as criticism is welcome!

Looks good is this to make it gp shift or you just wanted to change the shifter position?

This offers both standard and GP shift patterns. It also eliminates the original shift linkage rod and mounts everything on the engine cases. The adjustment eccentric allows for 1 1/2" of adjustment up, down, forward and back. Just rotate the shift mount plate to the desired position.

I'll have my final machining costs in tomorrow morning. I can post a price then.

I plan on selling by word of mouth for about 8 weeks. I'm having a website designed and it is scheduled to launch Febuary 15th. It's a full e-commerce site, professionally designed and managed.

I plan on manufacturing more parts for the S1000RR. If anyone has any requests, I would like to hear them. I have a couple of other parts at the CAD/CAM stage right now. They should be ready for the website launch. A couple of the parts being designed are of a unique design. They are for crash protection. They are small, light weight, and offer protection that nothing else does.

I will be signing up with the forum as a Vendor shortly. Until then, I believe I need to keep the sales talk at a minimum.

Subscribed, bummed that I found this after spending $650 on rear-sets and being less than satisfied with the shifter.

Here are a few more photo's of the shifter on the bike. I'm waiting for a special shouldered bolt and I can't install the bearing in the shift lever until the anodizing is finished. So this is a partial mock up.

I sent ya a PM, but I'm obviously confused haha.

Did the 2012s have a different shifter than the 13s? My shift rod runs through the frame and is like 12" long. Did you change it on yours?
