I had the same problem until I discovered that you have to get up to about 150mph and then shift all the way down to first. If you let off the clutch fast enough it will pop right into seventh gear. It works everytime for me.

There is a special circuit that wont allow you to shift into 7th unless the throttle is wide open and your are hitting the rev limiter while in 6th.

Has anyone successfully installed the 8th gear mod?

Shifting to 7th is a real bitch. Sometimes I have to reach down with my hand while redlined in 6th and just yank the shit out of it to get it to go into the elusive 7th gear.

As for the 8th gear mod I decided to go for the Reverse mod instead. It's perfect for when you are backin' your ride in at hooters and don't want to actually have to walk it manually.

GSXRLOVERNYC, If you want to try the 7th and 8th gear mod, I have a full kit. Just drop me a PM and we'll work out the details

</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">8th gear is easy. While in seventh:

-Rev engine twice, quick
-honk horn 3 times
-left directional
-right directional
-left directional
-right directional
-Tap Rear Brake Twice
-and now go for 8th

Should be a snap!!!
