Did you try to contact the designer ucp.php?i=pm&mode=compose&u=34319 to see if he has any?

I had a look on eBay, there are currently three sellers on there selling shift pivots, all three of them are knockoffs. I do not see the original on there, so I suspect that the member who is having trouble with his eBay-sourced pivot is attempting to install one of the inferior knockoffs.

I talked to Cliff this evening, he is picking up the new batch of shifter pivots tomorrow, and expects to have them online to sell by the end of the week.

These are now available in small quantities. I have 61 at this point, the rest of the lot is being adjusted. Ebay or venmo at this point.

Thank you , I am not much of a mechanic and am getting old and fragile but I think I can do it. Am leaving in mid July for Oregon to visit daughter , tour the country by motorcycle has always been in my bucket list. Other then the sloppy shifting 89 go 1500 is solid as a rock.cappacino machine works flawless.lol
