Hey guys,

Having some issues up shifting. I know there is a common issue with the pivot plate on the 13+. Bike cuts out like it should but the shifter hits a wall and the bike doesn't shift. This only happens at high rpms around town or a light pull and its fine.

I do have attack rearsets in reverse shift, and today I did just change my shift rod out. Below are a few photos of everything just in case.





And a video:


Should I fool around with my shift linkages or is that pretty much a pivot plate issue?

Side note: This bike was bought brand new this year with no miles, it now has 3400k

It looks like your rod is not 90 degrees to the arm. Rotate your lever on the splines clockwise one or two teeth.
The OEM rod at that position was 90* but now since I swapped in the longer rod it seemed to mess that up. Got a square out and measured between the two. The one that lines up the marks has fixed the problem.

I have a track day coming up in Aug so I think ill grab the kit from triumph since its cheap and keep it with me just in case. Thanks for your help :grin2:

I see you're also in NY, If you live near Suffolk county let me know so I can get you a beer.

I have aftermarket rear sets (GiaMoto) and the connection to the shift spindle is not at 90º. Still, the bike shifts beautifully. The key difference is I have the Sato shift shaft spindle support installed.

no I hear the engine cutting but the gear doesn't engage
My research from around the internet and forums suggests this is a known pivot plate issue, to be fixed by a new pivot plate from Triumph or aftermarket from Apex. I have the same issue, won't shift from 3rd to 4th at high rpm >10k on the straights at track. I just ordered parts from my dealer, will arrive in a few weeks. Will work on it the next few months so won't have an update until next Spring.

Ahh, good to know! Did you stay OE or aftermarket pivot plate, detent wheel and spring? I have OE parts on order...
I got the upgraded detent wheel and a new pivot plate, plus a shift shaft seal since it was leaking from there. and a spring in there too. i got the return spring but I didn't feel like changing it since it was the same thing.
