Mike (Metalman) made me an aluminum sleeve for my shifter lever. (Thanks Mike )
I put it on the bike last night and took it for a 50 mile ride today.
Wow, what a difference this thing makes in the shifting.....even 1st to 2nd gear is so much easier and smoother. (And my bike normally shifts like an old tractor from 1st to 2nd)
Cant explain how or why it makes shifting seem much more effortless.......but I can tell you it does. (The fact that it looks good also is icing on the cake)
Thanks for the mod Mike, I really like it.
It beat out all my other mods except for the Corbin Seat.....LOL
But you would be hard pressed to get me to give up either of them now that I have it on my bike.
I owe you several beers when you get back and if you ever need any pocket money these things would sell like hot cakes.......inexpensive fix for the hard shifting on this bike.
I know several 9'ers who would buy one if you make more.
