Hey guys

Has anyone had any experience, good or bad, installing and using this product? Does it really help to make shifting smoother? how does it work? how reliable it is?

Here's what you get in the Shift-Pro kit. New softer, lighter spring and a a new retainer arm w/ a wide roller bearing. replaces the super stiff stock spring and the retainer arm w/ the wimpy washer riveted to it.

I also run the shift pro with cascade shift star, shifts really smooth, I just need a shorter shifter now and I'll be as good as you can get it.

check Ebay, thats where I got both of mine. Their Id is "simplythat" and they are actually Tudor Racing Products, the maker of the Shift-pro kit
Shift Pro

http://shiftpro.com

Cascade has both parts

http://www.cascadeinnovations.net/

under "Banshee Accessories & Performance", then under "Shift Mods"

In a nutshell:

#1 drain your oil and coolant. I reccomend installing one of those EZ-drain waterpump covers and the aluminum impeller too while you got it off.

#2 take off the kick start lever and the footpeg.

#3 pull the whole clutch cover off.

#4 remove the clutch assembly and you can get right at it.

Guys

I just got the Shift Pro Shift Kit and the Moded Shift Star installed on my 06 banshee.

It is as smoth as it can get. I can't wait to drag race and realize that I will naver miss a shift any more.

And it is really easy to get to neutral.

100% satified with the set up. :beer:

With the modded star you should be able to hit nuetral at will. Before my modded star went on I had to shut the bike off, but now I can hit it with the motor runnin'. I had the shift shaft modded too and it should shift like butter.............. :beer:

What mod can you do to the shift shaft? I'm thinkin bout gettin a modified star for Christmas b/c mine is hard as hell to shift sometimes, especially when it gets hot.
