Tip & How-To about Motorcycles
Worn splines on gear levers and shafts always result in loose levers or broken off bolts. When pinch gap has to be widened, (do not put any spacers between lever and shaft-it never works) the bolt entry angle must change or bolt will bind and snap before closing onto shaft. Turn the bolt into thread side to start of gap as protection for thread so you can elongate or drill larger diameter entry hole.
