Never thought about this, but I don't think there will be any issues the shaft extendee it's about 60 mm long and perfectly centered, the action is smooth because it's rotating on the center axis.not sure where to take it from, but would be nice to have a support on the extended shaft ?
I tried to cover all scenarios, in theory the footrest itself acts as a crash pad. Thinking on adding some crashpads locators on the engine under frame, as a double measure.yeah, there is still transverse load going into it every time you actuate it (unless your shifter operates with zero resistance )
IE, it is being pushed sideways from its centre axis towards the front of the bike or pulled to the rear.
I wouldn't be surprised if it started binding after a while as things work themselves loose, particularly where it clamps to the existing shaft-first it'll need constant tightening, then after a while that won't be enough to prevent it worgling around. I would be thinking about the bearings, eventually, too.
Also, if you go down, there go your cases when the extension hits the ground and breaks the shaft right out of the castings.
Man..I'm out of ideas....if you get an idea, please tell me. Would like to play it safe than sorry.Unfortunately, Yantosh is right. The law of leverage attacks quite differently than it seems. You warp the wave. Still nice work. I'm sure you can think of something awesome.
this would prob be my option, skim something off of the adaptor mount and make a bracket, secured by both the mounting bolts, which mirrors the gear lever , the same pocket in the centre of it, make it a featureOr redesign the adapter so there's a brace coming forward to support the shaft, or make an add-on part there that uses the mounting bolts or something?
I think I got it, and thinking the same, but probably a bearing is needed, right?...or something to make the shifter axle turn smoothlythis would prob be my option, skim something off of the adaptor mount and make a bracket, secured by both the mounting bolts, which mirrors the gear lever , the same pocket in the centre of it, make it a feature
