Man im getting sick of tightening up my shift lever ,ive even ground out the slot in the shifter so it can clamp tighter to the shaft ,and put a longer bolt with a backup nut on the end to stop it coming loose ,so anyone got any tips or should i just look at getting an aftermarket shifter; i can do it up tight then after 1 days ride it is loose on the shaft again
