Love it! Review by Anthony
Great product, top quality. Looks and works great, and the install was simple and straight-forward. Highly recommend as an easy but effective modification. (Posted on 12/14/2016)
nice product, needs some DIY Review by bizurk
On my 2008 FXT (and some other models), this installation requires some dremel work on a steel shifter surround. There are good links on scoobymods on how to do this; for me it involved some cursing and a couple dremel re-charges. I also had to trim some of the rubber grommet that surrounds the shift actuator in order to reduce rubbing/squeaking.
That being said, with the Kartboy bearings and this shifter, the shift effort is much higher, but rewarded with nice positive/notchy feeling. Shifting into 1st is really the only difficult throw, all others gears are perfect. (Posted on 12/4/2015)
