Yeah, I gotta say any of these type of shifters are a great improvement over the stock Rube Goldberg signature series shifter. As the 'Dog says, shorter throw, more positive engagement, zero slop...........even if they didn't look bad azz these would be the way to go.........

One more improvement is that the removal of the rod between the peg and the actuator leaves more room for the inside of your left boot, no longer rubbing on it.

Focchi, could you tell if the package had been opened and inspected? All previous International shipments (UK, Canada, France, Aus.) had taken on average only 1-2 weeks, hard to explain just where (why) it was held up for so long.

Glad (and relieved) it finally arrived!!

Hi Mitch, no, it was not opened.

Everything was perfectly packed with the bubble plastic.

I believe here in Brasil they are doing these delays on purpose, so people stop importing things and stay buying only nacional goods to keep protecting Brasilian industry. That´s the reason it took so long...

At this moment, I don´t have the blue locktite to install it, so been honest, I didn´t even opened the little packages in order not to get crazy, but as soon as I do (and install it), I´ll put the pictures.

Thanks for everything!!!!

Regards, Focchi.

Same delays are becoming more common in Chile as well. As to the reason???????? Mail delivery in most of SA seems very, very slow.

Well, I´ve been reading some news about the government trying to scare people who buy from outseas, including China and US as the more important origins... And the eletronics are the principal targets...

That´s the main reason, for sure!!!

I don't thick so.
If you are looking for a good shifter. The one from Sato Racing is good, lots of ways to adjust it to fit you.
Also Stortz used to make one for the XR, not sure if they still do.
