Anti Rattle Shift Rod Spacers

softbrakespringloadedspacerHarley-davidson touring model riders know very well about this small but annoying problem. The constant rattle of their shifter rod. The solution offered by Softbrakes are 2 spring loaded spacers. The longer model replaces the stock rubber spacer while filling the gap left when removing the inner arm. The short spacer is also spring loaded and simply replaces the rubber bushing on touring models while retaining the inner shift arm. Springs are not visible when spacers are in place. Respectively $19 and $16. At Softbrake.

    If you can hear a little rattle like that you should really rip off your mufflers and run drag pipes! Todays bikers are SISSYS!

    A neat idea indeed. If you live in a jurisdiction where quiet pipes are required and this is regularly enforced, this little device solves the rattle problem. Drag pipes will get your bike impounded in our area for sure.

    i’ve found that a pushrod tube spring and a brass plumbing washer do the trick nicely, really dont need the brass washer, but it adds a little low cost zing to the spot and keeps the grease from shnizzling out
