    Default Kit to shorten the gear shift throw (BE3)

    Can anyone recommend somewhere to buy a kit to shorten the throw for a BE3 in a 405?

    I tried to contact Griffiths Engineering in the U.K. (based on an old thread I found) but have not heard back from them.

    Thanks

    I think there's a relatively easy solution on a BE3/405. I've been meaning to do the same to mine.
    The arm with the ball on it has a bend towards the gearbox and if the nipple is moved further out towards the end, it should result in a shorter throw.
    You'll need to make or buy a shortened gear selector rod though (the long one).

    I'm lazy, surely there is a kit out there I can just buy? :-)
    I did locate the CAE Ultra Short Shifter but Euro $1,389 is a fair bit above what I'm after (but it looks fantastic)
