Re: shifter link
Mine was loose on my first ride out this year but I didn't know about this issue yet. It got so bad, I was almost unable to shift at all. It was a slight issue as I pulled out but became much worse when I was 25 miles from home and I thought i had a trans issue with it not shifting. I returned home with several 4 letter words as I struggled to find gears and I was really glad to find that the pivot bolt had just become so loose and would not move the linkage far enough to shift gears. I give my shifter a good wiggle now to test the slack before I head out so I know if I need to tighten it up again. No locktite yet but if it comes loose again, I may consider it. I think it has a self locking nut but that obviously may not be enough.
A good reminder as the season progresses.
