That should not move like that, did you force the red arm back on (tap on it with something)? This is a common issue when people install rearsets, they tap that arm on and bend the shifter fork.

Damn!!! Yea dude if you forced it on there like that the shift forks are cheap but the work is crazy pricey as you have to open the motor up. Best of luck man. Keep us updated. I have to do the shift forks on my dirtbike and its a pain I can imagine how it will be on a streetbike. Did you take the bolt completely off before trying to slide the mount in?

dam stupud of me to do that,, well here, ill tell you exactly what i did. dont flame hha,

you all see how the oem rod is red and also the connect pieces is red right?
that cause i painted it. i just dip it on paint , so now the top linkage has an extra few layer of paint that's why it didnt go smoothly like how it should had. thats when i got the mallet and started tapping on it. and all sudden bloop it went in a bit...like 1/2 inch.
i not sure if i should go start it and run it thru the gears..

hopefully it aint a biggy. i just ask my buddy who had and rebuild his R1 this season.. he's saying it cant be that bad as ridng it..well see

I didn't know that piece is so fragile that slight tapping can cause a break. Good luck with the fix.

Side note but what about a temporary fix where you can put something on the end of the rod to prevent it from sliding?

well when pushed back out to being normal, i dont think it'll slide in. im just worry about internal damage.
Hhmmm. 1/2 is quite a bit to sink in there. Try and find a diaphragm an see what could cause it to slide it in. Did run through the gears?

Ok i was wondering about the Red paint, correct me if im wrong but the new Vortex linkage part that connects to the shift rod is the same as oem right? mine isnt painted, so i can assume that after loosening the bolt it should slide in. I remeber having to remove it for my woodcraft case cover install, when i was done i just slipped it back on (no taping or mallet) anyways i hope it all works out for you man

Wait, does the Vortex Rearsets not come w a new shifter rod?? or did you paint that red?
Edit : after looking at your pic i see the new rod that came w the sets, wasnt sure you had to re use the main rod (your in red)

^that pic's of V2's

Nuttynu's look like V1's

V2's come with 2 shift rods, you only use one.

Length determined by choice of shift setup.

^the pic of V2's is setup for regular shift pattern.
GP shift pattern would have the shift rod on top for the V2's.

The part you messed up is #1 on here.
http://www.ronayers.com/Fiche/TypeID/26/Type/GEARSHIFT_DRUM/MakeID/1/Make/Honda/YearID/47/Year/2006/ModelID/5277/Model/CBR600RR/GroupID/199252/Group/GEARSHIFT_DRUM

Very thin metal piece. We did this once and won't make this mistake again.
Make sure to take your bolt out all the way before installing the knuckle. Yours might be bend but it also might be broken off. You have to open up the cover, remove the clutch basket and that will give you room to replace this part.
