    A transmission lever cover and decorative acorn nuts and bolts
Slotted Bar & Shield Gear Shift Linkage is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but needs to be upgraded for 2017 and newer touring bikes. Great product which I have used on previous bikes with great results. However the supplied transmission shift lever cover is not compatible with the curved transmission shift lever incorporated into the 2017 and newer touring bikes. Harley Davidson needs to correct this oversight as the lack of a curved transmission shift lever cover distracts from the overall appearance of this product when installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and well made!! I had this exact one on my last bike ('07 Dyna) for seven years with no peeling of the chrome or anything! It also looked fantastic! So, because I liked it so much I bought another one for my new bike ('14 Road King). It really dresses up the linkage area and the slots are not too hard to clean at all. It is made well and easy to install. Much more mass than the stock one.. Great job here Harley!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad chrome I've had 2 of these on my bike. The first one didn't last 2 months, the 2nd was on for just over a year. The chrome starts to peel off inside and along the edges of the slots. My bike is garage kept, and I have absolutely no issues on any of my other chrome parts. The first one was replaced under warranty the 2nd was past warranty when I noticed it was peeling. It actually flaked right off when I was doing spring clean up. I like the style, but for 130 bucks the chrome shouldn't flake off. I only use Harley branded or S-100 products to clean the bike. My photos are too large to upload, or I would have one there to see that the bike is well taken care of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form follows Function I purchased this shift linkage for two reasons. First and most importantly, I wanted heim joints. The OEM design is a weak link in stock configuration and has been known to fail. Heim joints on shift linkage address one of two issues with Harley's shift linkage. I won't go into the second reason. The second reason I purchased this item is I wanted it to look good. This piece fits the bill. It dresses up the left side of my bike nicely, and the shifts are improved with a nice crisp feel. Looking at pictures, and seeing it on a bike and in videos, it appears like a nice solid piece, however in hand it's feels very light, almost hollow. The directions can be misleading depending on which bike you put this on. Step 2 of the instructions are correct, regardless which bike you put this on, however the diagram in Figure 1 shows the shift linkage on the inside of the shift lever. Figure 1 is correct for certain models, and if you have one of those, it wouldn't pose a problem. For others, it might leave you scratching your head until you realize Figure 1 doesn't apply to your model bike. Just an observation that might save others a few minutes of frustration trying to put the linkage on the wrong side of the shift lever, because there is no way it's going on. Another reviewer claimed this piece peeled. Unfortunately, chrome does that on occasion, and it's why you'll find even top of the line chrome parts only have a 1-2 year warranty. Personally, I do not wax chrome, and only use products designed to clean and shine chrome; nothing else. No guarantees this always works, but hopefully this piece will stand the test of time. It serves the purposes I bought it for, it was a simple install, it looks good, and I like it so I'm giving it 5 stars!

Does this go on the inside or outside of the shifter rod?
Asked by: bucci100

I purchased this product for my 2017 Road Glide Special and discovered that the transmission shift lever cover supplied is straight, not curved .

Is Harley Davidson going to supply a curved transmission shift lever cover so this product is completely compatible with the 2017 and newer touring bikes?

transmission lever cover for 2017 Street Glide with Milwaukee eight not compatible

the transmission lever cover that comes with the replacement chrome bar and shield linkage will not go on the transmission lever of the 2017 Street Glide Special. Cover is straight but the lever is curved. Do you install the linkage without the cover on this year and model? Fitment shows this linkage to be compatible with the 2017 Street Glide Special but the supplied transmission lever cover (part of new linkage kit) does not fit the lever on this year/model.

Does that have the Heim joint that I keep hearing about?
