Gear shifter

Hi guys
Iíve not long bought a Cbr600rr 2003 and have noticed the gear shifter is quite loose on the shaft. Iíve checked the shaft and no play,so am assuming itís the alloy gear shifter bore has worn,is this a common problem or have I something to worry about?
Thanks

My shaft wiggles a little bit. If you post a video of it I can tell you if it's excessive or normal.

Hi
Thanks for your reply
Iíve had a closer look and the actual shaft is fine,but the gear shifter/lever is loose on the pivot bolt that screws into the end of the shaft,looks like Iíll need a new gear shifter!

cips007 my '05 is like that, hasn't been a problem, but I suppose maybe I should have another look at it.

498cm3 Itís probably the alloy thatís worn on the gear changer hole,so am going to replace the lever and the pivot bolt that fixes through the centre of the lever.
Thanks guys

OK thank you, I'll likely be doing the same. First I will check the retainer bolt and the condition of the splines.

Tary I recall that procedure, and thought of it when this thread came up. I wondered if ham fisting would cause the aforementioned looseness...

i think he's talking about the actual shift lever, not the adapter that spines onto the shift shaft.


the slop is caused by wear. it's just a simple shouldered bolt and bushing fitment, so as things pack out it'll get loose.


OP it probably won't cause any trouble, but you could look into fixing it. i don't know off the top of my head, but is there a bushing in there? if not you could look into drilling out the shifter and installing a brass bushing to tighten things up

It looks like mine is sloppy due to either the bore of the shifter has worn or the pivot bolt,so have just ordered a replacement of both

Before I fit my new lever and pivot bolt,do you fit it dry or add a little grease?

Grease. There's a channel in the bolt specifically for it
