Looking for a better shift rod... - June 17, 2013, 09:46 AM

So I have been having some issues with my stock shift rod bending and I need to get a slightly more heavy duty one.

SV650 with Vortex rearsets and a quick shifter... stock length or a little longer would work perfect (the one that came with the kit is for no QS).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!!

Can you cut the Vortex one down to size then drill & tap it?

I looked for a while for this same thing and gave up and bought a rod from home depot, cut it to length and just threaded the ends. Ended up making a few.

Possible, but I would like to just get something that I can buy 2 of.

Need male / male
Buy 2 vortex's and make them the same.

And also -- the carbon one on the website says "Need a custom size? Just email us and we make one for you.".. I'm sure they could accommodate male/male -- but quite pricey, especially for a race bike.


How about the bazzaz shift rods? They are easy to cut down to size.

Cool - didn't even think to do there. Going to order one of those and see how it is.

This is exactly what I plan to do if I jack up the Honda's shift rod when I cut it. Although not sure I'd hit Depot unless they have it in stainless. A rusty shift rod looks tacky.
