It should have come with a new arm for the shifter on the motor. At least my set did, but I got the Corssa's and they change the way the bike shifts all together.

I can't remember if the first set I ordered had one though. I didn't use it if it did because I have a quick shifter so it was a custom install.

When I get back to the shop on Monday, I'll look.

The ball joint on the shift arm will unthread. This should give you the ability to bolt the shift rod to the shift arm.

i tried unthreading the ball joint. took all my muscles and still couldnt do it. and even banged my knuckles a few times trying.

either this ones is one peice. or its on there really strong.

if i need to buy a new peice for that. i am ok with it. but i would imagine if the rear sets dont have the same setup. they should either say that in the description. or include a part for it.

i keep getting screwed over on parts. its really getting upsetting.

anyway, i appreciate the help.

Just to clarify: You are trying to remove the ball from the shift arm on your motor, not trying to separate the female ball that connects to the rod right?

Mine came right off with an 8mm box wrench.

To unthread the rod, as a last resort, undo the nut by it and unscrew it all the way to the end of the thread, get a wrench on the nut, and then rotate to rotate the entire shift arm. It's not really good for the nut so like I said, as a last resort.
