Exclamation Shift linkage

I came back from riding last week, was looking over my bike and wiping things down prior to putting the cover back on her. I noticed that the shift linkage rear bolt was sticking out. I checked it out, it vibrated out from the shift lever that goes into the engine housing. I was about to lose it and lose the ability to shift at all. All HD Street 750 and 500 owners please check yours and make sure that your shift linkage isn't loose.

Thanks!

Can you post a pic of this to help in identifying the correct bolt?

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

How many Miles does yours have? I just broke 1500 Miles. Guess I should check mine.

He is talking about the Bolt that secures the Shift Linkage to the Shifter Shaft. Looks like a 10mm with the head on top. Shop Manual 5.6, Figure 5-4. My suggestion would be to put Blue Loctite on it. Torque to 80-97 Inch (6.7 to 8 Ft) Pounds.

I don't have a shop manual, and bike is still in winter storage

I have seen Several Streets with the Nut missing where the Shift Linkage connects to the Shaft. These were at HD Dealers.
