Mrs. Moneybags gave me a gift certificate for fathers day for my local HD stealer so I decided to get the round shift linkage they have.

It's got the Heim joints on both ends, looks way better than the el cheapo stock linkage and I've been looking atit for a while now so, what the hell.
Wow! What a difference!
Not only does it look way better but it's so much more stable than the stock linkage, it shifts better! And it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that it's not gonna fall apart in the middle of a ride!
I know I could have pieced together much the same thing from different sources on the Internet for a good bit less money but hey, I had the gift certificate so why not.
So take my advise, if you haven't already replaced your shift linkage, get one! You'll be happy you did.

On my round-tuit list is chucking up a piece of stainless in the lathe and knocking out a custom shift linkage, might even splurge for the stainless heim joints so I can polish those up too. I got a bunch of 1/2" stainless around, just need to put it to use.

Maybe you can go into production, and sell them to forum members.

You've been looking 'atit' for a while now? I guess that wasn't the only round thing on your mind eh? :rolleyes: :D

Or yet another, Drag Specialities has been providing nice threaded SS Cr plated hiem joint ends to replace the junk ball sockets for years. Use your existing rod, @ $17 each

new shift linkage

Just back from a trip and my stock shift linkage was rattling like crazy. Upgraded to a new one with heim joints and what a difference. The shifts are smoother now and more crisp all the sloppiness is gone. This should be one of the first mods any makes.
