I shift down (gp style) I think it's better, because when you launch all you have to worry about is getting your feet on the pegs. Not back on the pegs and under the shifter.

Ive always shifted up. Im used to it, and with no quick shifter that method still wins against bikes with same displacement and an air shifter. I guess its just what your more comfortable with.:thumbsup:

Exactly. But you can trim if you like. It does not have to be cut. I didn't on mine. The rubber boot will wear slightly but you don't have to cut the fairing. (I promise)

Put in a couple of spacers, no rubbing and no cutting

For road racing GP style is the only way to go. As was previously stated you don't fight gravity and it is much easier when centrifical force and gravity help you shift.:cool:

yeah GP shift really comes into play on the track when you are coming out of a left-hand turn, needing to shift up a gear before you've gotten back up on the bike and straightened it out, very difficult to up-shift in that position hanging off on the left side, much easier to tap down on the shifter. My formula II bike back in the 80s had "real race shifting" referred to as GP shift now. Going to be putting it on my zx10 as soon as I can afford it.
