    Default sloppy shifter

    my 95 evo still has the original heel / toe shifter set up and recently ive noticed a lot more play in the shifter assembley.
    The shifter arms on this model snug down onto a splined arm which sits in a housing in front of the primary as opposed to later models where the arm comes through the primary.

    the shift levers have a lot of side to side wiggle on them so last night i took everything apart, took out the old bushings in the housing for the splined arm, greased it up good and put two new bushings in along with new rubber O-rings. put it all back together and whilst its a lot tighter than it was previously there is still a little bit of play.

    I am assuming this is probably normal but just wondered if this is the case.

    You didn't say which '95 model ya got, so I guessed; Is your shifter setup like this:

    Did you check all of the rod ends for wear? Could attribute to some of the play you are feeling.

    My bad, its a 95 heritage but you got it. Thanks for the schematic that definitely helps. I checked the rod ends last night its the crappy original joints. Gonna upgrade to some heim joints this weekend and hopefully sort it out.
