Can one of you guys on a 1st gen naked do me a quick favor and measure the length of the stock shift rod, from thread to thread...



Thanks in advance.

The parts catalog at the dealer says there are two lenghts, one for the s, and one for the naked, mine is the S model, so no luck on a measurement here, sorry.

Yeah, I believe the dealer ordered me the wrong one, but would like to confirm this with a measurement. Appreciate the help.

I have a 1st Gen S, and recently had to replace the bent shift lever that came with it (just annoyed me, and I knew what bending it back would do). So, I order one for the SV online, $25 bucks, right on pretty easy, but the shift rod doesn't screw in quite as far, and the it just feels a little more forced sometimes getting it up from 1st. I'm wondering if the shift lever might be different for the naked, and hence I need the shorter shift rod.

Anyone thoughts? I think I'm just gonna have to get one and try it out.

Hey guys, I need your help. I just bent my shift rod on a 1st Gen SVS. What is the length of that one. Is it 174mm? Thanks!
