I have a pro designs power shifter. I kinda like it. One being that neutral is super easy to get into. However I dont know if its my 01 transmission or what but the gears are spaced way out. The gap between 1st and 2nd is so large that sometime I miss 2nd and go into neutral hitting the rev limiter. I dont like that at all, but like I said it could be my transmission.

your shifter could be too high also...if you move it down a couple teeth you'll probably shift better

yea i have noticed that on mine too but its an 01 too. my honda 450 all you had to do was bump the shifter and it went but it is also almost race ready from the factory. i was just kinda looking at cheap accessories.

thats a good idea tommy that was another thing with the direct shifter was it would be easier to adjust to my riding style without all the bs linkage

Already tried moving it down far as possible. If I go one notch lower I cant push it enough to downshift because I hits something.:eek: I think it was my prm skid plate. I just think it's the 01 transmission that everyone says is junk anyway.

I love my pro-design. Yeah it was expensive but its worth it. You can sometimes find them cheaper in the for sale section when people start parting out.

Like Max said, spend the 80 bucks and get the pro-design.
