gear shift lever

Does anyone know how the make the gear shift lever more precise, if you make contact with the lever you would notice that first it bends from the pivot then transfer the force...

I just want to make it tighter, so all the force applied is transferred..

thanks

Nothing wrong with oem's and I pound the crap outta it. up and down, four hours per day no clutch; nearly 100k miles. Math is done for you.

the question was not, is it durable...

I just want to be more precise, like aftermarket ones....

I had that problem on my concours... I replaced the larger shoulder/stepped pivot bolt with 4 or 5 very small ball bearings and a smaller bolt. The bearings were very cheap (I got a stack of 10 for about 6 bucks), and it took out all of the lateral slop. I haven't looked at the set up for the Gen 4/5, but if you take a quick picture of it apart I could tell you if it would work. :)

EDIT: This is a lot like what I did, but I changed a few things for my preference. IIRC, I used the same bearings on a Gen 2 10R to clean up that shifter as well.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

For sure. I have a few of those bearings still laying around too.... if the measurements are the same I'll throw them in the mail to you.... just post up your dimensions when you get the chance.

This could be done 2 ways one its fitting a tighter brass insert so its way less play with the ss bolt Another to get a ball bearing insert it in the bolt of course you have to machine the bolt and press the lever
