I thought I would post this here to see if anyone had any ideas for a modification i plan on doing to my shifter.
Basically, right now I am shifting with my left hand because my right arm extends just below my elbow. I am able to shift, but it could definitely be more comfortable with this mod. To make it work i would need to extend the shifter back about 9-10 inches. We build a rough prototype of what we were going to use, and it seems it should work. The challenge, which may be inevitable, is that with our current design there is a rocking motion the shifter will do when going back in to 2nd and 4th gear. Ideally maybe there would be some sort of pivot to keep the extension level, but I cant think of any way to do it. I have already installed the Kartboy short throw shifter to help this as much as possible.
Here is a paint version of what were doing , and we are going to try to machine a usable version of it this weekend.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
