I know of another person who's done this. The shift lever becomes more secure since it's directly connected to the shift rod. The stock shift lever uses a torque tube and a plain bearing arrangement. The plain bearing is what causes the slop referenced.
The problem with this set up is that it reverses the shift direction into the GP pattern (1 up, 5 down). That's the good part. The other issue is more related to track use. The shift pedal is locked in that position. For adjustable rearsets, moving them up and back, the pedal spacing increases since the pedal doesn't move with the peg. And when you crash on the left, the shift pedal gets damaged and is harder to replace. You can't just swap the rearsets out and move to the next session. That's the reason it doesn't come from the factory this way.
If you don't adjust your rearsets and like the reverse pattern, then you can do it this way. Not me though.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
