That shit would fuck me up. What are benefits of this? And could it cause damage to the trans?
Moto GP guys do this so they can just mash their foot down to make sure it goes into gear. Wont ever miss a shift. Doesnt do anything different to the trans. Its just making the linkage backwards.

Im kinda interested in doing that. It probably would have made shifting easier on my track day.

It REALLY helped me when drag racing since missing second would be SUPER CRUCIAL. So by reversing the shift, I can just step down as I'm picking up my foot from the launch and not have to fumble around trying to get my toes underneath the shifter in normal mode.

this is awesome I have been wondering about how to do this. I am still confused as to what the advantage of doing this is, as well as how good it will be on a daily commuter bike. The thing I defiantly would love to do would be to install a gear indicator.

The best thing to do is to reverse it and just try it. I went back and forth a few times before sticking with gp shift. But again, you'll have to cut a hole into your sprocket cover.
