I installed an Arlen Ness Chrome DeepCut Shifter Linkage onto my 2015 Harley Davidson Fatboy recently after both watching a video and following detailed directions from Arlen Ness, The linkage definitely tightened up the system however, after the install I am having challenges with my shifts. 1st gear is nearly impossible to enter downshifting from 2nd as well as neutral is hit or miss. Additionally, I am encountering missed gearshifts from 3rd to 4th and so on. (Before the install neutral was an easy find and all gears worked as designed) I have re-clocked the foot shift levers several times hoping for a solution as well. I have contacted Ness but after sending photos and 3 back and forths I get the same distress call as I receive whenever someone is trying to assist on my computer, " I have never seen or heard of this before". I am frustrated and thought this was simply a bolt-on. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Briggs Noble

Looks like the shifter rod is adjusted too short and causing the pivot arm to contact your primary case.

Thank you Kainam,
I very much appreciate your advice. I agree with the difference of this being a fixed piece of hardware in leiu of an adjustable linkage. This hardware does not give an advantage for fine-tuning.
Thanks again,
Briggs
