I’ve been doing a little research on these engines again , one of the things that turned me off was  the shift pattern, it’s all up, neutral on the bottom. When I was a teenager, I had a Kawasaki 350 twin street bike, that bike was fast. I hated the shift pattern, all up, when down shifting, once in a while you would go past 1st and into neutral. I know on my CR80, I only go into 1st when starting out or have a major problem on the track,  but I know I won’t hit neutral by going to far down on the shift pattern, just one more thing to think about.
