I am sure the clamps for the full fairing need to go, but atleast i would not have to change the entire shifting mechanism?
Motech redesigned the left rear mount, so the shifter would have enough range in upward movement to engage a gear. even with the Versys mount, all you had to do was clearance the mount or cut and reweld the shifter...all moot since these new bars are available.
the other advantage to the versys footrest mount is that it puts the footrest in a move favorable position for DS riding where you need to stand on the pegs, sometimes frequently all day, depending on road.
