Markland Driver Boards miossing shift linkage

Postby Clarencechapman » Thu Apr 23, 2015 5:54 pm



Ok I have a set of driver boards for the 1100 but the guy I bought them from shorted me the shifting linkage.
I have no idea what it even looks like.

Can anyone point me in the right direction, send me a picture, or knows a place that I can get one, please let me know.

Thanks
Clarence

There are 2 types of heel/toe shifter.
one shifter just fits in between the bikes shifter rubber part.
the other shifter as a rod which goes from your shifter to motor shifter shaft.
Look at the links to see the 2 different types.

Sorry to say Stuart but you are incorrect. He does not need that part, he has everything needed already. 8-)
Ride safe, Todd

I think you both may be right.
The forked piece is correct but I don't see how that can connect directly to shifter since the shifter is under the head.


And so I need a linkage to make the connection.

The pic you have take that spring off turn shifter around and those forks on the one end ride on the OEM shifter were the rubber part is. Most of the shifters you have to cut out rubber in the area for the toe shifter for to fit on OEM shifter

'mornin guys,

now that i see a pic of the shifter you have, auctioneeral is correct. there are 2 types of markland shifters, i have the one with the linkage, and you have the one without the linkage. had i seen a pic of yours before i posted, i would have told you. sorry about that.

Ok got the boards installed. shifter is working properly. The board on the brake side is interfering with the brake action. The brake lever is actually hitting the board pipe on the inside.

Bikerbuck..Any chance you could send me a pic of the brake side of your bike to see what is different?

Thanks again for the info

There's a "turnbuckle-like" adjustment where the linkage meets the master cylinder.....you can change the height of the brake pedal there. I have stock pegs on mine and lowered my pedal so i didn't have to lift my foot to reach it. Hopefully there's enough range of adjustment that you could raise yours enough to work properly.....

take the right side cover off, look between the frame and the muffler, move the peddle up and down with your hand and follow the peddle back to where you can see a short rod moving up and down as you move the peddle. that's the adjustment rod. i think you'll need 2 10 or 12mm wrenches to do the adjustment with. another way to find it is follow your rear fluid reservoir hose down to the proportioning valve, the adjustment rod is under it. loosen the top nut and turn the rod counter-clockwise to raise your brake peddle up then tighten down on the nuts to make sure the rod doesn't move. its a tight fit to get to, but with some patience you can do it.
