I have never thought a six speed conversion was worth $2500 (Baker) and five speeds is enough for me. I would do it again in a heartbeat; very cost effective upgrade IMHO. I do notice the gap in the 4-5 shift but have no issue with it. By the time I hit 5th, I am always going fast enough that I don't notice the gap. I do find that I use 3 and 4 more in the twisties than before which is changing that riding style a bit but for the better; less braking and more evenly applied power.
The parts are quality. 2000 miles since the conversion and, shor of a six speed, a great upgrade for the five speed. You will need to recalibrate your speedo as it will be off 10%.
