Hey Dave, you still got the instructions from your shiftkit install?

They may help him out!

Good for you mate!

So it works well then, yeah?

Noticeable variation in shift point & firmness?

Yeah, my adjustable shiftkit works well too, but I find it's too firm if I adjust it beyond 1/3.

Kicks down nicely, but can be a little 'clunky' at slower speeds.

lol i have mine set to just over half way, because i love the way it kicks down and yes it takes the gears all the way out to 5500rpm before it'll change and at lower speeds it's really clunky so i switch it off once i'm in top gear.

i wasn't 100% sure if that was the way to do it as i thought a higher resistance would give a softer shift. you can turn it on but all the way down right?
