Murph’s shifter bearing upgrade!
« on: March 24, 2018, 03:07:39 am »
Well who has this and what did it cost you?
I saw it said $21 for the part but when I added it to my cart it charged me $91,
I don’t need it that bad!

Glitch. $21 sounds about right. I paid less I think, but that was years ago.

You didn't select the "option" correctly, pick the pulldown menu and select "kit only"...
You selected "kit plush new shifter" which adds $70...

I think you know that now from your response... :great:

Its a great upgrade for sure. Its one of those things you get to use constantly and enjoy. Priceless at $21.
In theory, practice and theory are the same. In practice, they aren't. Without data you are just another guy with an opinion.

FTB, Kawasaki slightly opened up the ID of the shifter since this was first developed.
Be sure to use locktite to secure the bearings in the shifter.

Ride safe, Ted

BTW There's a Loc-Tite product specifically for that purpose. 520 secures gears is for press-fit rather than a thread Locker.

I guess it's time for me to get me one of these to compliment Steve's Mountain Runner Flash...
