Reverse Shift pedal, 1up 5down

Anyone swap out there shift pedal to a cbr600 shift pedal? Makes it 1up-5down, I need a little clearance for the new track boots. I havent played with the stock setup yet, I might find the clearance there.
I was just curious who likes the change?
And if it helped them out at track days?

I'm running the normal street shift pattern, but for racing or track use, the GP pattern allows you to upshift while leaned over into a turn.
Plus by pressing down to upshift, you get a more positive shift action with the sole vs toe of the boot.

I find it much more natural, even though I've been doing the opposite for years. I also have a couple older bikes that were originally that way, but those are a real pain when you upshift instead of brake.

I have a VFR800 shifter installed instead of the stock. It's a 5 minute job.

The government standardized the current shift pattern back in 1975.
That's why Harley and Brit bikes had to change from right side shift to left side shift to meet regs.

I've always wanted to try making the shift, pun not intended, what year cbr600 shifter lever and linkage do I need?

I used the CBR1100XX shifter. Not sure what the differences might be between the various models. It fits my foot quite well. I have typically reversed the shift pattern on most my bikes. Just feels better.

So, CBR1100XX or VFR shifter, I'm guessing cause the lever connects straight to the knob on the tranny. Right? And if that's the case, won't any lever that connects straight to the knob work, as long as the lever clears the engine cases?
