    Not a Hard one to do but i figures i'd snap a few pics and post it up

    There is the stock one .. thin ugly and has weak ball joint linkage

    Remove the old one

    Pic of new one and old one .. Fatter Chrome and Heim joints

    I set the prelength the easy way

    now if i need to adjust some im at least in the ballpark

    here it is installed don't forget to loctite the bolts

    Doesn't really do much other than look good and less chance of the linkage popping apart esp if you use the rear shifter

    Yes that is frost on the Primary 16 Degrees today

    Very nice Bud. I have been contemplating replacing mine, now you've convinced me.

    I am surprised that this did something other than looks .. i had a lot of slop in the shifters and no more now its tight.. had another buddy try it out and he was surprised how tight the shifter felt

    Those heim joints make a big difference over the ball and socket that is stock.
