    I purchased my 06 Ness Jackpot a couple months back and the previous owner was either a bit more long legged than myself or didn't mind being stretched out. Either way, it's a bit less than comfortable and wanted to go back to the stock length. ( 2" shorter) I'm having difficulty with the stock shifter linkage length. Does anyone happen to have that available? Screenshot_2018-03-23-10-33-47.png 20180407_140638.jpg

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do. Change the linkage or adjust it?

    If you're just trying to adjust it you just need to unscrew or screw the bar to the length you need. If you're finding the length you need isn't working out you can adjust the rear linkage on the cog going into the bike. The two dots line up to show how it would have come from the factory. Loosen it and adjust it a notch forward or back and see if that gets you where you need. Finding the sweet spot of both will get you set up.

    I'm trying to take the two inch forward extensions off and get back to stock length.

    Is the current linkage adjustable or fixed?

    Adjustable....but when the extension kit was installed, a longer linkage was installed, and I'm wanting to go back to a fixed length and Ness linkage.

    With the controls back to the stock position a fixed linkage arm should fit fine. Then you'll only adjust the rear connection on the cog.
