The ACUITY Short Throw Rocker Upgrade can be appreciated as much during street driving as at the track.
Much like how a ACUITY short throw adapter reduces the distance in the forward and reverse direction while changing gears, this Shifter Rocker Upgrade reduces the distance in the left and right direction while changing gears (such as 2 to 3, 4 to 5, etc).
Replaces the OEM plastic with billet 6061-T6 aluminum construction. This makes for a much stiffer part, resulting with less flex when shifting forcefully and better feedback from the transmission during shifts. Additionally, ACUITY's unique joint designs at the main pivot and spherical joint incorporate low-friction, self-lubricating bushings that are designed to reduce friction in the shifter while naturally eliminating any gaps between parts in the joint.
This allows the joint to wear-compensate over time, meaning the rocker will age gracefully and provide many years of use, abuse, and happy shifting. Class 10.9 steel hardware and an aluminum bushing replace the factory snap-in feature, further reducing free play. This pairs very well with Acuity's Gear Shifter Base Bush Kit (P/N: ACU-1914), Short Throw Centering Spring Upgrade (ACU-1918), and Short Throw Adapter Upgrade (P/N: ACU-1923).
A packet of silicone grease is included with each kit to help lubricate the o-rings before installation into the shifter. It is not necessary to grease the spherical joint or hinge.
