    Gear shift Bush

    2010 Road King ------------Anyone know if you can get the gear shift shaft "bush" (if thats it's name) out of the inner primary case without taking the case off the bike?
    The gear shift mech is rattling about sommit chronic and doing my head in. Have adjusted it all and tightened it up so im guessing next step is get a new shaft and bush if it can be done without stripping out the primary.
    May be a blind bearing extractor? would do it.
    Anyone managed to change the sleeve with inner primary case in situ ?

    Also suns out so what you reading this for???

    You’ll need to get the shaft out first and I can’t see how that can be done without removing the inner cover.
    Removing the Bush is simple once the shaft is out. I’ve attached some pics of mine when converted to mid controls, hope it helps!

    Ah, I can’t add attachments but here’s a link to the thread with pics I posted a while back.

    Hi David.

    The lever on the inner end of the shaft has a pinch bolt (on an Evo anyway) so the shaft will slide out and the bushes are short enough to come out between the primary and in crank case. The bushes are split so they aren't very tight in the casing, I knocked mine out with a long body socket.

    When I changed mine I was surprised how worn the shaft was so perhaps getting a new shaft as well could be a good plan.

    Hope this helps.
