Another shifter solution?

What better way to start the new season with some homework on my shifter. Even with the KBerger shifter modkit I purchased I still felt the shifter play was adequately stabilised.
Thats when I found this brass/copper bush and a precision bolt. Pics attached.

Haven't installed it yet but that should be a breeze. Going from the microscopic play I feel when fitting it dry(some teflon grease will even reduce it further) I'm convinced this will shift like a different bike alltogether.
KBergers mod works fine, but I'm pretty sure once installed I'll be able to confirm this is the shizz.

If it does I'll advise Part Numbers or offer to post.

Cost me 10$ in parts_not out to make a profit

Hi mate,
Meanwhile I've moved on to a K1300s.
I could source you a brass bushing, but yours might have worn more then mine(or less)
with postage fees I'd personally recommend to find a machine shop near you instead, have them measure your shifter inner/outer diameter to 0,01mm precision then tailor make you a bush.
Or order one online from standard size with the closest tolerance then just sandpaper it down with finest grit.It'll take some time invested but anything will beat the OEM situation you're currently experiencing.

Metric

You know that fitting is metric right?
You can use standard metric bolts and bearings.
M8 bolt, 4xbearings and you don't need a spacer. Flat washer on the end, and spring washers at each end of the bearings.
Works a treat!
