I have mounted BSK speedworks rearset. But as you can see on the picture below, there is something wrong. Is it mounted wrong or what to do to fix it? I was able to drive with it, but still it`s not good, and shifting gear wasn`t always perfect and tight

I would suggest a call to BSK. They are good at responding to queries.

Have you attempted to adjust the 'turnbuckle' mechanism in and out to keep the shift lever in a steady state position? I'm sure it needs to have a certain tension to stay aligned - it appears from your pictures, but not your description, to be slipping beyond the ideal position.

Do you see the alignment mark on the end of the splined shaft on your gearbox? That generally has to be aligned with the gap in the shift lever. Go to BSK's website and look at how they have mounted the lever of all of the race bikes. It is positioned at nearly twelve o'clock high. That may be yer problem.

TWB's right (as usual  Razz ) The gearbox-thingy-bit has to be perpendicular to the ground (i.e. pointing straight up) to get the  gearbox shift mechanism to work correctly. As it is at the moment, you're only getting a partial shift in the box and the dogs are not engaging correctly.

Thanks Smile I will look into it later this week an post a update Smile I saw someone has the `turnbuckle`oppsoite of mine. (at the bottom instead of the top like mine). Don`t know if it just the angle or if it`s the correct way to mount it.
