Gear shift lever
« on: January 29, 2020, 08:31:10 PM »
Has any one else had  issue with gear shift lever fouling the spring of the side stand. I would like to adjust the position of the lever so it's lower down.  But the spring is badly in the way . Any info on this would be good

How is the shift arm clamped to the end of the gearchange shaft orientated?  There's a punched dot on the circle of the shaft end that should line up with the slot on the arm.

Chuck the linkage in the bin and fit a Honda CG125 gear lever, still gives 1 down 5 up and no more sloppy lever. Magic! It also looks far neater.

Hi semaj, is that true as my gear change knuckle slipped round on the change shaft as the splines are wearing out and don't grip the change shaft very well. And I can't seem to find a new shaft or gear change knuckle anywhere.

Everything lines up perfectly . It still sits too high . Back to the drawing board I think.

I fitted one of these and tried this on my bike and having a size 10 boot,I could not change gear upwards easily as the lever comes towards your leg,trying to ride up your foot rather than away with a standard lever.
This resulted in a lot of missed gears on one ride out and I immediately switched back to standard set-up.
