GP shift rearsets query

Hopefully i'm not reposting - i've done a search and can't find a definitive answer to what i'm looking for...

I'm after some rearsets for my 2016 striple R, nothing too fancy as the only reason I want them is to flip the shifting over to gp shift..

Just to throw a spanner in the works though, I have the Triumph pull-type quick shifter fitted so i'm wondering if there's a set out there which will allow me to flip the shifting around but also keep the pull-type shifter? I've seen pics of some where the shift rod rotates from a bolt near the sidestand mount, so I guess it would work with this style of rearset as the shift arm will still be rotating anti-clockwise...

The other question is whether Daytona rearsets will fit?? I seem to be able to find a lot of 2008-2013 striple or 2013+ daytona rearsets, but not many 2013-2016 striple rearsets!

Thanks

Not entirely sure on your year, but I run Attack performance on my 12 which fit Daytona and can be switched around. I would check their website and email them. They're very good about promptly responding

Check this thread out...
Reverse/GP Shift Pattern without Aftermarket Rearsets
https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?sha...8&share_type=t

As far as the rear sets all Daytona and street triple rear sets have the same bolt pattern. So they are interchangeable, major differences between the 8-12 & 13+ is the exhaust mount.

I have Daytonaís on my street triple,and sold mine to a Daytona owner who converted his Daytona into a street triple. Go figure

This is interesting. Since retiring and no longer commuting to work, I'm riding on the street much less than I used to. I've probably done more track miles than street miles this year. My Street is standard shift, and my track bike is inverted. I've never had much issue shifting (eh? Punny, no? ) back and forth, but this could be an easy and not too expensive way to eliminate the need to make the adjustment. Besides...BLING!

One issue has me hesitating: A buddy installed a similar device on one of his bikes and didn't like it. Hopefully, I can explain why. A shifter mounted to the rearsets pivots in the same general area that your ankle does, so the arcs that your foot and shifter peg move along when shifting is similar. Sort of like this: (( . With this shifter, the pivot is well forward and outside the arc your foot moves along, causing the arcs of your foot and the peg to be opposing. More like this: )( . The geometry gets even farther off, if the heights of the pivots are far enough away from each other that you are pushing or pulling into or away from the shifter pivot.

I guess the only way to know for sure is to give it a try.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

Interesting, I wonder if another possible cause could be the lose of leverage with this design.
But what do I know?

Don't worry your little head; I'm here to unnecessarily over think every little detail for you.

Thanks for the replies and link..

I like the look of that standard peg to reverse the shift pattern - interest point made about it rotating in the opposite direction to your foot though so its moving "away" from you during the upshift. I can't see it being too much of an issue though as some bikes come from the factory as standard like this I think...only one way to find out though i guess!

Only issue is that i'll have the same problem with my quickshifter...the rod will be "pushing" to shift up and not pulling...I think my only option here is going to be a new quickshifter which i was hoping to avoid but such is life.

Is the Daytona exhaust mount in the same position as the 13+ striple then?

Cheers,

Cheers,
No, it isn't. It's moved back and up, maybe the exact same amount as the peg?

Now for more information than you thought you'd get and probably more than you wanted:

I put a Remus exhaust on my 13 not too long after buying it. When I did, I noticed there was a spacer on the midpipe with the stock exhaust, and leaving it in place caused the mount on the exhaust to be too far back to align with the hole for it on the stock rearsets. I took it off, finished the install and motored happily along until I picked up the Daytona rearsets.

When I put the Daytona rearsets on, the holes again didn't align and this time the hole on the rearset was too far back. I scratched my head a few times, threw out a few choice words and then remembered the spacer. I dug through my spare parts bin and found it. With it back on the midpipe, the holes lined up perfectly.

Interesting stuff! More random bike information is always appreciated...it does a great job of kicking out useless information from my brain like birthdays, appointments, peoples names etc

I have an Arrow exhaust fitted but the bike also came with the standard exhaust and box, so i'll have a dig around to see if I can find a similar spacer!

If it's in there, I guess full steam ahead with daytona rearsets

I'm pretty sure it's #13 - sleeve, exhaust, flanged.
