I have mechanical problem that I am trying to solve while I am on the road - I am trying to trouble shoot a problem that I am having with an electric shift set-up. What I need is someone that can take a measurement on their bike for me. Specifically I need to know the throw of the shifter when you upshift. This is the distance that the bolt that connects the shifting linkage to the rod shifting mechanism that connects to the transmission - I need to know how far it moves from at rest to as far forward as it goes when shifted into geat. - I would really appreciate the help if anyone can run out to their bike and take this measurement.
Hey Kevin, I took a quick measurement and I read about 3/8 of an inch, could be 7/16. This was for a 1st to 2nd upshift. Keep in mind this is not an exact science. I was bent over on the ground trying to measure this and the the throw is actually on an arc and not a straight line. I measured this from the centerline of where the shifter meets the rod end of the shift linkage. Are you measuring for the throw of an electric solenoid?
