Gear shift rod needs extending and also wanted to have less than the 7mm of threads showing due to how low I run my lever.



Solution was to cut a 10mm bolt shank and accurately drill & tap a 6x1.0 thread into it to make a tube to extend the shift rod.

Bit of good old fashioned rocket science.
measure twice, drill once.



Or you could just rack up the credit card and buy chinese sh1t off ebay

Turned the shifer arm one spline anticlockwise to hopefully help keep the breathless cbr on the boil.
Tried to reverse the linkage (like my other bike is) but the cbr's setup wont allow it.
Ended up with only 2mm thread showing on the adjuster rod and the lever where I want it.
Threadlocked the extension into the rosejoint so it wont work loose.
Bent the gear lever inwards and kept the toe piece inline with the bike.
Lubed all moving parts.
Everything could be returned to stock at a later stage.

Speaking of chinese Ebay sh1t, ordered some lightweight CNC cbr600rr pegs, the rubber pegs blow.

Great work Aufitt! Initial thoughts on how the bike performs now with all that weight savings and 13T sprocket?

Its just a bit of paper, easy to draw up.
Centre to centre of the bolts is 80mm,
when you remove the brake side you'll see how far back and up the hoses allow.

Hard to tell what makes the biggest difference,
-The gearing
-The non Oring chain
-The weight (but I still have a headlight in there)

None of these things make a firebreather but when chasing laptimes, wanting to carry a gear higher, or wanting to pass those slow 1000's at the right corner so they dont hold you up thru sections of track its helped.
