    I have the compbrake front to back one.

    First off you will need to lift up the gear leaver gaitor and make a small slot in the rubber on the left hand side. Under the rubber there is a small hole that you need to poke a long nail down when the stick is in the neutral position. This will lock the gar linkage in position while you then fit the short shifter kit.

    Once the kit is fitted you will probably need to adjus the cable slightly. There is a little bit on the end of the cable where it fits to the quick shifter that lets you adjust it. There should be some instructions with the kit anyway.

    Could someone please measure the adjustment length (the oval hole) of short shifter? I`m going to drill another hole to get my DIY short shifter but dont know how far I should make the new hole..

    And how the leather (or is it rubber) boot under the shift knob get off? Dont want to make any holes for it to get the cable adjustment done..
