Guys,  i'm reading along and how much smoother can it get? I go out and move the shifter by hand and it feels super smooth, but have also kept it lubed.  I mean my shiftin' toe has never been tired on any bike I've owned. ha ha  You guys are goin' on about it like it's something to have.. So maybe your on to something I need to check out.  By the way I had the opportunity to talk with Mike the owner (i believe he said) and we chatted for several minutes. Heck of a nice guy. KJ

Hey Guys..

Just wanted to drop in a note here. Seems Mama K has opened up the bore every so slightly so we are now recommending that you use  Lock Tite when switching over to the shifter kit.

Another heads up, there are two little stainless  spacer washers on the unit,   be watching for them when you pull the bolt out of the shifter as they have been know to get lost. Your shifter will drag with out these little  puppies missing..
