Default 2010 shifter linkage bushings?

The shift linkage is very sloppy on my 2010 CR. Not only side to side but up and down. It's the up and down slop that bothers me.

The bushings that are offered are for 2011 and newer models with the round bushings. (the 2010 has hex bushings).

I checked a new bike in the show room and it was nice and tight.

What have other owners of the 2010 cross roads done to solve this problem?

Thanks,

Richie

This 2010 XR owner has not done the bushing thing, but here is what he has done to improve shifting....
I lowered the lever so that when I slip my boot under it, it takes up the slack. Then I preload the shifter for smoother and quieter shifts. I find the slop a non issue.

Thanks, That is exactly what I am doing now.

I am hoping to remove the slack from the linkage.

From Witchdoctor's web site.
(Will not fit shifter with hex shafts! (2008-2010))

These will not fit my 2010 Cross Roads.

Do they have hex bushings for the 2010 that I haven't seen?

Sorry- we do not have bushings for the 2008-10. The only thing I know of to help is a new shift pedal.

Like Witchdoctor said. Need a new shift pedal from 2011 or newer, then put the Witchdoctor brass bushings in. I had to do that on my 2010 XC.

Thank you for the information.

Did you get the replacement shift pedal from Witchdoctor or OEM?
