I just installed sato rearsets on my cbr 929. the shifter shoe seems to twist and be wobbly.

For those of you that have them....is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Thank You

I posted a pic and a video of the movement i was talking about
The video wouldn't load for me but it looks like it's not on the shift shaft deep enough. There should be a void in the splines where the bolt will "fit" through. Yours hasn't quite gone into that recess in the shift shaft. Take the pinch bolt completely out and push the knuckle onto the shaft to the point where the void is where the bolt will pass through. Then put the bolt back in. It's like a retainer of sorts so it doesn't wiggle off the shaft over time, which is exactly what you are describing its doing now.

Here's a pick of my 93 900's shift shaft. I'm assuming the 954 is similar. See where the splines stop, then start again? Get your pinch bolt in the void and you should be good to go.

ill agree with ian. youve got to take the pinch bolt all the way out of the linkage n slide it on all the way back. then put the bolt in so it fits in the groove ian described between the splines. that kinda locks it in so it cant slide off unless the bolt is fully removed.

i didnt watch the video but if you upload it to youtube and post a link here id be happy to watch it.
