A ball bearing replacement set for the plastic sleeve bushing that is OEM. Inspired by a thread started on the concours.org/zggtr.org website by joefech for the C14 Concours, we had cross over customers request it for the ninja!
The do it yourself kit comes with all the needed bearings, spacers, and shims, plus instructions on our Knowledge Base page.
3/15/2021: I was contacted by a customer and told that his shifter had a metalic bushing that was very hard to get out, we now recommend you add the optional Tool Pack on your order.
Please note, use a light spread of Locktite on the bore of the shifter before installing the bearings

Installed this upgrade on my 20' Ninja 1000SX. Very pleased with the ease of installation ( bushing removal tool made it a snap)
I immediately noticed the lost motion of the shifter was gone and that the up/down shifts, whether with clutch or QS, was much smoother.
A must upgrade for the Ninja 1000 platform.
Thanks for a great product!
Very pleased with the Murph Kit bearing replacement in the gear shift lever. Shifts are much smoother now with minimal play in the lever.
Highly recommend the optional Tool Pack. The bearing driver makes quick work of getting out the OEM metal bushing. Using a punch, chisel, or file requires much more effort and takes a lot longer for removal if the OEM bushing is metal.
