    Took Joe's advice and went through Pagasis Racing for ball joints. I was a bit shocked at first by the $30 dollar a piece price, but after receiving them I can see where the money goes, seems to be the gold standard in the ball joint world. I was planning to make my own rod, but unfortunately reverse thread die's are pretty much impossible to find around here, not even my local machine shop had one. Ended up just purchasing a reverse thread rod and cut it about a inch longer than stock for 30 bucks. Overall, I would have to say it's about the best 100 bucks I've spent on Speedie. Pretty much the best of both worlds between a direct shifter and the shorter throw of a linkage, amount of free play is next to nothing.

    BTW, still using a fender washer jammed in the side stand pivot in place of a spring. Have put a couple thousand miles on this set up, side stand has yet to move the least. As long as I don't screw up and lube the pivot I can't see it going anywhere without me wanting it to.

    Side stand still moves up and down when I need it to.
