Did you end up cutting the rod ?

I've noticed most videos said they left the length of the rod as is.

Some did cut it most did not.

Thanks!

I cut my rod to the notch they said to in the instructions.

I ended up cutting the rod per the instructions, everything went fine installation wise, just got back from a test ride, that's more fun then I expected it to be definitely worth the 140.00.

They appear to have a multi-purpose kit for a R1-FZ-10 here in the states. It wasn't a problem cutting where indicated on the US kit basically you just cut in the grove already in the tube as indicated in the instructiona and that was really the most time consuming part for me.

Off the line hard from a dead start at high RPMS is the smoothest. Definitely shaved off some ET time. Or shifting at low rpms can also be smooth as long as the road is flat. Other times is to clunky or jerking so I still use the clutch. Seems that high rpm shifts are it's sweet operating point.

I noticed that as well YammyBoy. I also did notice a bit more feeling with the new shift rod, although that could also just be I am thinking about it more then I normally would.
