Hey everyone,

After scouring the internet for a few hours, I found this site and made an account. I'm riding a 1972 Honda CB500, and today while riding, the shift lever popped down past it's usual position, and I could no longer shift.

When I looked closer, I saw that the teeth on shift lever itself are stripped, so it was rotating beyond where it usually is instead of shifting. I've already ordered a new one, but my question is; what is that rod that the shift lever gets screwed onto? I've looked everyone for different diagrams, and videos, but to no avail.

I'm trying to figure out what that rod is in case it too has stripped teeth on it and will need to be replaced.

Any input on this will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

Welcome to the Forum. You might want to post that in the Repair Section. More of the mechanically minded folks might see it there. Good Luck to you.

Why is it when no one asks you know the answer...but as soon as someone wants to know....you forget what it's called?
