Shift linkage

Just a reminder, check them occasionally. Was planning an 800 mile round trip two day ride. Night before the heal tow shifter fell flat on my toes. Found the front shifter linkage bolt, shaft and shift arm all had galled up threads. Unable to bandaid fix. Fortunately was only a mile from getting back to the RV. Spent yesterday finding an open dealer in Ohio with the part.

Reading the internet, lots of failures on the splines, mostly with 2014 and newer with as little at 6000 miles. Many rrplaced by warranty. At 86k, no warranty on mine anymore.

All fixed and headed out for a day ride.

You mean the linkage arm behind the primary that fell off the shaft back there?

No. Inside shaft of the front linkage.

OK, I've had the outer levers come loose on the '06, then the linkage on the trans shaft decided to fall off at the bottom of a highway off ramp in Wendover NV on the 2011.

Was able to wiggle it back onto the shaft and next morning some large fuel hose and zip ties, to keep it in place, got me home.

I'll have to check the front inner link tightness also, before my upcoming trip. (I carry a 3/8" drive 1/4" hex bit "socket" on the bike with me because of this delightful happening)

Mountainkowboy has failed to amuse us
I had the shifter shaft break clean at the back of the primary on the highway on the RK. Had to jam it in 3rd gear to get it home, drilled and added a zerk to keep it lubed.

Check the size of that front hex bolt. I think you will find it's smaller than 1/4". It was on mine. The heal and tow shift arm bolts are 1/4", the shift arm was not.

Uffda & Iffrin!


You are correct, it is 3/16", on the front inner link arm, have that in the saddle bag also, whew.
