Hey Earache
Are your shift rods still available for $10? Also, what are they made of - any chance of rusting?
Thanks
Tom

I don't think they will ship to Canadian customers. Is anyone south of the 49th willing to buy one for me then reship to me in Canada?

My Local dealers want $85 CDN ($70 USD) for this thing!!! NUTZ!

Yarddog, that was posted last June so I'm not sure you'll get an answer. Anyone hear from Earache as yet?

I re-shipped an arm to Gord back in July. Earache's profile says last activity May 05.

Got it, Gamecock - responded to you.

I'm not on the Forums much anymore, but could make a few.

Eric, I'd like one from you. Just let me know how much...Rick

Did you get rid of your FZ1? or just don't have the time to play on the board?

I just installed the R1 shift arm tonight and went for a quick blip around the neighborhood. IMO, shifting is dramatically improved. The stock setup reminded me of the "three on the column" shifters on old cars. It now shifts almost as quickly as my dirt bike.

yes it helps. article from motorcycle consumer news june? 04? yes its fine for size 12 or 13 boots. trading slightly more effort for less toe movement. rode one with(mine) and one without (my friends recent 03). a decided plus.

i read all the posts and went out and looked at my bike with a flashlight. so, you guys aren't changing the toe shifter that your shoe hits. you are changing the linkage piece that connects into where it disappears into the engine case, right?

so why are people asking if large feet still work with the mod?

i hope i made my question clear.

thanks for any reply.

I have no idea why someone was asking if large feet would be a problem. Shouldn't change anything except the shift throw. It better not be a problem, I wear a size 13 boot and just ordered this R1 shift arm because I am sick and tired of missed shifts. Not good for tranny either.

I'd imagine that simply adjusting the shift pedal height via twiddling the shift rod (which works by using one end of it along with a corresponding "rod end" that is left-hand threaded, effectively making the rod assembly longer or shorter by turning it) would be able to put the tip of the shift pedal where you want it.

Just remember that the left-hand threaded end uses a left-hand threaded lock nut for that rod end.

$51.51

I went to the local dealer here in lakeville MN Primo Motorsports and they wanted $51.51 for the shift arm It's a nice new store but the pricing needs improvement.

Using the R1 shift arm has no bearing on where the shifter itself is located. The R1 arm simply allows for quicker, more positive shifts due to being shorter than the standard FZ1 arm. The linkage is adjustable, so you can move the shifter up/down as you like. When I put my R1 arm on, I had to bend the linkage a little to make it clear the hole in the frame. When I was finished the shifter was 1/16" higher than it was before I put on the R1 arm, and I did not use the adjustments on the linkage.
