    I’ll make some popcorn while waiting.
    Must say nigel s got a point. If the shaft has play then there could be a prob inside where the xtra support helps
    A quick shifter would only dip the rpm

    I fitted a Gilles ones about two and a half years ago after having the bike for a year. Firmed up the gear changes no end and don't regret buying it at all.

    Yep had a Gilles fitted on my 14 plate... Echo above comment with it feeling more of a precise and direct feel, It certainly felt improved on up and downshifts...Highly recommended :)

    So the bike has come into the workshop today. I have pre made some mods.
    But the technical measurements took a nose dive when I grabbed the end of the gear lever and pulled it up and down. It does rattle
    now the gear lever DU bushes have been changed for needle roller bearings.
    I did make it like the aftermarket type needle roller bearing going straight onto the gear lever shaft but I did not like the wear marks on the shaft ( shown in the picture ) so I have fitted a larger needle bearing and a hardened sleeve to fit on the gear shaft.
    Now there is no play in the shaft

    I have a H&M quickshifter with Honda gear indicator, still get the odd neutral shift. @mk3golfcab it is annoying lol!

    I have to say it did nothing I was expecting it to do.
    Altho the shaft has now 0 "wiggle", gears still feel clunky.
    Also, I did experience a false neutral the other day, using quickshift.
