Gen5 questions

Long story short: Former racer with injured wrists/hands and can not reliably work a clutch for any length of time.

I am looking at a point where I may be able to swing my leg over a bike again but would need a machine that was true clutchless up/down shifting. I know that all the Gen5s are ride-by-wire but do all of them have the autoblipper for clutchless downshifts or is that only certain years?

Also, I raced a ZX6R. Assuming proper geometry, how much more effort does the ZX10 take for initiating corners? Generally throwing it around, etc...

Thanks in advance for any info/advice.

Maybe there's an aftermarket clutch perch out there that has a higher leverage ratio to make the lever pull a lower effort? It could be a partial solution for you. CRG makes 2 different universal clutch perches that you could check out. I don't know anything about them other than the CNC construction on them looking super trick. They certainly look far better than the OEM clutch perch which looks like it came off a Wal-Mart bicycle.
