Any ideas on what to do to get it to not bend the shift rod? I am using spencer cycle's under peg shifter mount with the aluminum block that mounts it to the shifter rod and within 8 passes I bent the shifter rod... I was using 130psi on the big prostreet style shifter ram, anything less wouldn't make the shifts.

Any ideas on getting a stronger shaft or what other avenues should I take? There is no binding at all, everything is mounted so it has some free play and the shifter ram's static position is right in the middle and will make full passes either way (up or down shifting) without bottoming out.

You need to fix your transmission if it is taking 130psi on a large cylinder for it to shift. Eight your kill time is not adequate or your internal linkage of trans gear dogs are shot.

Use less pressure on the air and make the kill time alittle longer to see if that helps. It's probably jamming the shift with nit enuf time for engine kill time

you have something else going on to bent the shift linkage..there are lots of people using what you're using with zero issues..no need to buy something else..just fix what you have..

Ok, there is to much conflicting info... I was told to use 140-150psi on this big ram, otherwise I would have been using around 130psi... I was just trying to lessen my kill time... It worked fine with 70ms kill time in the ecueditor software with 130psi, and worked flawlessly at 140psi at 60ms kill time... I don't know exactly when it done it because it never missed a shift... I was thinking about this and I could have possibly accidentally hit the horn button on the return road or something and didn't realize it which bent the rod.

Okay first of all lets get something straight for the ones talking out the side of their necks, refering to our product as not the right way to go or they are junk....:hysterical:


Our shifter brackets have set more records and won more championships than any of the copys out there. PERIOD.... this means THEY WORK!

as for the bent shift rod.... (not in the motor, no air shifter is capable of bending those)


to the one using our product..

the REASON it bent it is because you are using 140- 150psi on a large cylinder ...DO NOT USE IT THAT HIGH ......those cylinders should never be used with more than 80psi...and that is even a lot for most bikes...those have almost triple the power of a small cylinder...

use less psi if you are using one...but i really see NO need to use that large of a cylinder on a 1000....check you kill time...it sound like it is off as well...

our shifter brackets can be used in reverse as well.... it is a simple switch of the air shifter fitting...

I have been using the spencer bracket on my 08 for years problem free. 120 psi max never missed a shift.

Now on my other bikes I had either a home made bracket or a bolt welded to the top engine mount bolt. either way i'm never bent a rod before. I've never seen the need for the big ram on any bike I've ever owned and a few we really really fast. If it didnt shift I always found the problem.
