A 90-degree angle, check.
I know from past experience that the 90-degree junction is a must.
I have not tried it in normal/street shift pattern as all my bikes are GP shift
When I installed the QS I made sure I had the 90 degree angle - result was inconsistent upshifts
I then moved the shift lever down, more like 95-100 degree - result was smooth shifts EXCEPT at full throttle.
My thought was that by reversing the shift pattern, that moved the shift shaft from vertical to a slightly 11 o'clock position, so by moving the shift lever to 95ish degrees I maintain a 90 degree angle between the shift shaft and shift lever (hope I'm explaining this correctly). Maybe another 5 degrees will cure it, maybe not.
It's not funny, but it's funny
