Owners of the BMW S1000RR supersports bike can further the transformation of their motorcycle into the perfect track and race machine with the new HP Race Gearshift-Pattern Reverser.
The Gearshift-Pattern Reverser, the latest in a series of High Performance accessories for the S1000RR from BMW Motorrad, inverts the gearbox layout from a ‘one-down five-up’ configuration to a race ‘one-up five-down’ setup.
Running a reversed gear pattern allows track riders and racers to shift up a gear with the bike banked fully over in a left-hand bend, where it would normally be difficult to do so as the rider’s foot could not get under the lever to shift up. Riders can accelerate earlier and harder than they could when using a conventional gearbox setup, which can prove invaluable on a race track.
In addition, the Gearshift-Pattern Reverser has been designed to work in conjunction with an updated Shift Assistant quickshifter, which can be purchased separately, to offer very fast up-shifts by cutting the ignition rather than disengaging the clutch, offering the shortest possible interruption in power.
This lightweight aftermarket modification has been designed to meet and comply with all major racing regulations since it uses the original gearbox and parts. The Gearshift-Pattern Reverser is compatible with both theS1000RR’s original footpegs and the aftermarket BMW HP Footrest kit.
The HP Race Gearshift-Pattern Reverser package, designed to be fitted easily, consists of a pattern reversing lever, pivot mount, modified selector rod and all necessary fasteners and is designed for racers and track users.
