The shift linkage will operate smoother and with less resistance after this simple installation. This Pingel shaft prevents shift linkage drag and lockup on 2001 through 2010 Harley-Davidson FLH and FLT models that do not have a grease fitting on the shaft and can also be used as a direct replacement for 1982 to 2000 models. Shaft will accept any stock or aftermarket shift lever that fits the stock shaft. Manufactured from stainless steel with the exposed end polished so it will match the chrome shift lever. Installs in about 30 minutes.
