Lost the shifter on the freeway, is the pivot supposed to be lubed?
Going down the freeway, felt something at the left foot. Then noticed my shifter was gone and I was stuck in 6th gear.
I guess when I went down last week, I hit the shifter stuff and made it loose.
Got off the freeway, parked, worked the bike into 2nd and strapped down the shifter levers and rode home.
Ordered the special bolt that's right by the foot rest. It has rubber seals and a washer. I noticed that mine looks bone dry, no lube.
I've never lubed that before, are we supposed to have lube in there? Can't see any other reason for the seals.
