Thanks: 1289

Achieving zero play in the assembly involved rectifying several issues. The shift shaft (gear change mechanism) fit in the gearbox control cover is sloppy. It is not a precision fit in the cover and it moves around a bit. They make shaft a stabilization bracket for a few of the bikes but not for the Duc. I machined the cover to accept a precision fit bearing assembly rectifying that piece. Next is the QS itself. Ducati and TL use a micro-switch arrangement which by design, mandates movement, unlike a true strain gauge load cell which has no movement so a SG setup is going to further eliminate shift linkage movement. Last but not least are the rear-sets. We have tried a bunch of them. I stress simplicity and robustness. I am not a big fan of complex designs that incorporate multiple linkage points. This just adds complexity and there are more mechanical points for movement. Also, get something with precision bearing construction. All-time favorite rear-sets are Attack but they didn't make them for the 99s. I chose lightech because they met the criteria. They are extremely simple and very precise. With this setup, I have achieved a zero play system
Thanks from Rogue and Twistedracer
