Cliff,

I installed mine yesterday. The installation was very easy. My shifts seem more crisp with the pivot installed. I had a hard time envisioning how this would work until I installed it. You have a very smart design.

Just curious, how did you come up with this?

If it\'s got two wheels, I\'m in trouble.

I purchased a shaft on ebay and stuck it on a magnet on my bench and stared at it from time to time while building transmissions over the winter. I knew what I wanted to do, I just wasn't sure how to fix the pivot block to the chassis or engine. It actually took just one day to come up with it. One more day to fine tune. Wing World said they would do a tech article on this. I explain everything there. This is the easiest mod I could come up with. I always try to improve whatever I am attempting to repair. I have a mind for this stuff. Not smart enough to make the bike, but smart enough to make it better. It really wasn't all that hard. Honda could have done the mod from their factory. They probably would have purchased it from me if the bike was still in production. The hard part was getting the machinist to make it the way I wanted. It took 6 times before something was acceptable. I was ready to strangle him. I have found a better machinist and fired the first one. It has been changed again, for the last time that is.

I thank you for the compliment, It is greatly appreciated.

Cliff,

I would consider selling bulk to those in other countries. I know shipping and duties are prohibitive. Anyone interested in being the conduit for such a purchase can PM me. I will work with you to make these more attractive to the end users.

Cliff,
Better to license the product of manufacture there and make a cut on every sale... you'll need a good lawyer versed in international business law.

Wanting to buy one of these lovelies early spring. Your video was very nice. I checked my shifter for excess play and its still very tight. If I put on one of your pivots maybe I can avoid bad news down the road.
