I will look at that. But what exactly happens when it goes bad? Noise, slippage? The reason I'm asking is I have a problem right now and not so sure that this could be it.

What's the problem ?
When that arm is loose on the shift shaft the splines wear down then the arm slips on the shaft and the trans doesn't shift correctly.

I just bought a 12 FLHTK and on the second day of riding it I noticed a lot of play in the shifter. Don't ask why I did not notice it when I looked at the bike. Too excited I guess to think straight. Any way mine was about to fall off it was so loose. I had to remove the inner primary and luckily the splines were not worn too bad. I put a Baker lever on, post to be more better. It tightened up and will be checked often I can assure you.
