    Anyone have a shifter for a 5 speed close to Vancouver B.C.?

    Call Steven Tetu at Extreme Bends in Coquitlam - 604-834-FJ40. He usually has a pile of extra Cruiser parts laying around. By the way, assuming you have a H55, you can use a 4-speed shifter - the only difference is the knob. I've been using one on mine for nearly 3 years with no problems.

    Thanks I had planned on contacting steve.
    I have a couple of 4speed shifters so if that works great!
    I was told by someone with four and five speed that 5spd has ball at the end and 4spd has ball with sides cut off. Will this make a difference?
    thanks

    I've never seen a 5-speed shifter so, I can't say for sure. I know my 4-speed has the side "cut off" as you mentioned. It works just fine. You do need to make sure that you are using the shifter bushing for the 5-speed though (blue plastic cup that goes in the top of tranny) as it is a different size than the 4-speed bushing. Otherwise, mine just dropped right in.

    Are you talking about the bushing that the shifter sits on in the case cover (shift tower)?
    What about bushing at the tip of shifter?
