    Default This is bullshit

    So I'm hearin clankety clank clank coming from somewhere and it appears that 22yrs & millions of miles at warp speed have degraded the heim joints on the ol' shifter linkage. Having freakishly strong muscle mass even flicking the shifter with my left toe must put a couple hundred ft lbs of torque on the linkage and that can't help. Sucks to be me I guess.....



    So....get new heim joints??
    Get a new tough guy 14lb billet linkage with skulls or the Ride to Live bullshit?
    Leave it alone and wait for it to fall off during a 7500rpm 2nd gear upshift.....

    Please give me guidance.......

    Surplus aircraft rod ends fit because HD uses 'Murrican threads. They're cheap via Ebay. I used them with the stock rod on my FXR because the rod ends on those are just chromed riding mower parts.

    However I voted torch the motor so I can enjoy the rebuild thread.

    Alternate option after missing the shift, bolt in a stroker slabside FauxPan to REALLY confuse onlookers.

    LUBE? What heresy is this? Servants gifted such luxuries will grow entitled and make off with the silverware. Let 'em bite the pillow like their ancestors. If they behave exceptionally well, reward them with a nice snack.

    It's our civic duty to promote civilized behaviour, (sigh) however tiresome the work may be.
