Shifter Fix Ball bearings and Washers for sale

I just did the shifter fix on my KR and it is all they said it would be. I have four ball bearings and 3 washers to part with if anybody is interested. The bearings are from the VXB site and the washers are from the Bikeman link. I will ship them so they can be tracked. $16 bucks (includes shipping) Please let me know the pay pal option will work for you. My mod needed three washers to get the clearance I was comfortable with for the shift lever, you may only need the one or two as per the original post.

I also did the fix on my K1200S... much better!! Less slop..crisper feel. Easily worth the money but ... begs the question.. why didn't BMW figure this out?

They did ... on the 1300s. That is where the original idea started for the first person who tried it.

and it only took them 3 years? The Japs or Italians would have figured it out in about... oh... 10 minutes..

I'm a new owner. Is this something that should be done to a GT also? If so, any details or links would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
