Default Sloppy Shift Linkage solved.

This applies to the 2010 Cross Bikes.

I have been thinking about why the shift linkage on my 2010 CR was so sloppy. Not side to side but up and down. I finely thought I figured it out and today I decided to tear into the problem and see if I was correct. I WAS CORRECT.

I found the the 2 bushings with the hex inside were in perfect shape. The hex shaft that the two internal hex bushings and the shift lever pedal install on, were in fine condition BUT, the internal hex shape of the shift lever pedal were out of shape. The shoulders are worn off. This is because everything is made of steel except for the shift lever, witch is made of aluminum. Please see picture.

The fix is to replace the Shift Lever pedal, Part # 5137197-410 for $104 plus $15.00 shipping. They say you will need the Peg for $14.00 plus $15.00 shipping.

I checked a few web sites and the prices seem about the same.

I don't know if I can get the peg out of the old pedal without destroying it.

The bike has a bit over 25,000 miles on it.

Question

I changed my shifter bushings a few weeks ago and I didn't see anything that looked like that pic...???
What I found were two cheap ass, worn-out bushing that let the shifter flop around like a dying fish. After a little fine sandpaper work, I replaced them with two WD brass bushings and the lever is now flop free.

As I stated in my thread starter.(This information is for the 2010 cross bikes only.) The years after 2010 are different.

Get you some new pegs/pedals. You deserve them. There are hundreds of choices on ebay, Witchdoctors, Kuryakyn etc. I bought a set that matched my grips on ebay.

I was going to order a new shift lever pedal, (that's the aluminum casting , not the part you put your foot on), for my bike and I thought if I install another aluminum lever, it is going to deform just like the original one did.

Does anyone have an idea where to get a steel shift lever peddle? This is for the 2010 cross bikes and Vision.. I tried to find one in Chrome but only found aluminum.

Thanks for any help.

I did this for shifter and brake. The only think you have to do is go buy a metric bolts from hardware store. Do a peg where there is a thru bolt and you can pick what you want

I have a replacement Shift Lever pedal on order.
I could not find one made of steel so I had to order the original Aluminum casting. I will try to be (gentle), with it to make it last.
