Would you sell me a basic kit that the center hex thing is 1/2" longer than stock?  I've converted to race shift and kind of moved things around.

That will be no issue with the basic kit as the kit is nearly fully compressed to fit in the stock configuration so it can easily extend 2" or perhaps 2.5" without additional mods.

Email me or send funds via PayPal...... teecro @ sbcglobal . net (remove spaces) as I've got basic kits at the ready!

NOTE: To all interested buyers I am currently out of the Full/Complete Shift Linkage Kits till further notice as buying used shifter parts has become a crap shoot as to quality and condition; but I do have Basic Linkage Kits in stock and ready to ship ASAP....

Yeah only basic kits at this time it has become a real drag trying to find used parts that are in good enough shape for me to resale to people I consider both friends and brothers. I can and will do the work and return to you your parts ; I've done that for a few folks.

Tony, I would like to inquire about a shift linkage kit. Are you able to ship any out at the moment?

Or.... what is the turn around (and cost) if I sent you my set to modify?

edit: or I could consider a basic kit if that is available. What are the options at this time?

At this time I'm completely out.... I will not have any basic kits ready to ship until shortly after the 10th of April... I don't see myself offering any more complete kits as finding usable shifters without damage is a hit & miss PITA but I can do the work on your own parts and return them to you ASAP for 30.00 plus the cost of the basic kit of 80.00 keep in mind I can do nothing until I get off ship on the 10th so time your shipment if you so decide. Best to contact me via email at teecro at sbcglobal dot net  or text at 269 277 2034

Wow Tcro. It is a NICE shifter. So solid. Feels like a different bike as far as shifting. I may be wrong, but if you have Kneesavers, it seems to me that your shifter is a better match than the stock shifter, so that is an added bonus.
I put on the Kneesavers this off-season and I wasn't happy with the extension as far as adjusting it down. But now, your set-up is perfect.

Very glad to hear of another happy set up.... The stock linkage was/is very limited in adjustment length to which my set up and extend quite a bit and still remain quite solid. Also if given a little info and sizing requirements I can likely supply a linkage that will other bikes too.

NOTE: Due to rising cost of materials I will be forced to ask 85.00 for any future orders....

Okay, finally got mine installed, this is definitely and upgrade over the stock linkage.  Just to give everyone an idea of the difference in quality...T Cro's is on the top and the stock linkage is on the bottom.

Thanks Eydugstr, that is a great picture as it really shows off the beefy difference in the size (2 mm) of the 2 units, this helps reduce flex which even if minuscule adds vagueness to the quality of your shifting. Then when you utilize the precision shoulder bolt and add shims as needed to take out any unneeded slop at the shift lever the shifter transforms into a very positive and solid connection to your tranny giving an almost "machine-like" quality the shifting. So much so that missed gears become a thing of the past even on some of the oldest C10's out there...
