    Ive had stage 1 and stage 2 short shifters fitted. stage 1 reduces the throw from say first to second and stage 2 reduces the movement across from second to third.

    If that makes sence?

    Quite alot. problem is though... its been on there so long it feels like its always been that way .
    I know my other half wasnt comfortable with it for around a week. said it felt like you couldnt find neutral...

    i thought it does reduce the movement in all means...i didnt know it was specific to each gear movement.
    im not sure about what you are experiencing....

    Stage two shortens the sideways distance
