I am getting tired off the feel of my old stock shifter and I would like to know if the Steeda Tri-Ax is the way to go. I have heard good things about it but I am on a fairly tight budget so I want it to be worth the time and money. If so, is it something that I can install myself or better left to a professional.



Thanks,

Tri-Ax is the way to go. It is easy to install. The only hard part is breaking the old shifter loose from the transmission. Be sure and set your shift stops correctly.

It's the only way to go.
Just be careful removing your old shifter. Get a piece of 1x2 about 14" long and just pry it loose from the right side where there is a space B/W the shifter and the frame. Slow and easy pressure will pop it loose.

Oh yea, make sure you have some RTV silicone sealant also for the install.

Good Luck.

Go for it. I am quickly learning that on a budget, there is a limited number of mods that will give you a big difference that you can feel. The Tri-ax is one of the best mods you can buy as far as "what you can really feel" or "SOTP." I don't know how I ever stayed with the stock shifter for so long.

The instructions Steeda gives you with the shifter are well written and shouldn't be a problem. I wedged a hammer down next to the old shifter and used the a$$ end to pull up and rip it out. It was a little shocking when it broke loose and I flew back in the seat, but it got the job done. Good luck and have fun with it.

I love my Tri-ax...Can really bang through the gears now and its in a much more comfortable position now...And I can eject the CD without having to be a contortionist to get around the shift knob to take it out!
