I have finally worked out the technique to getting my ZX7 to BP (or at least close to it) in first gear (clutching it up of course). I am running stock gearing and can keep it up in 1st and 2nd. I am having a problem missing the 1st to 2nd shift with it up. About 50% of the time I miss it. You can imagine how hard it drops from BP in neutral. The 1st to 2nd shift on this bike is "notchy" at best and worse when it is up. My first question is do the shift kits that are sold work? Second question is do aftermarket rearsets make shifting any smoother? Any other input on stunting a ZX7 would be appreciated also.
