    Not really a pain to install....

    Lotta guys talk bad about them... but I like mine....

    Only complaint is that when you get vertical, the "T" shaped " Reverse lock thingy can hang up :crazy: cuz it depends on gravity to fall back down...

    Yup,I like mine too.You can just slap it back to drop a gear and put some ponies down and then give it a slap forward to put her back.The install isn't much-you'll have to drill a few holes to mount the baseplate on the floor,open up a small hole for the cable up near the front of where the baseplate mounts,and finish up by connecting the cable and adjusting it and running a lead from your light switch and one for your back up lights.You'll love the way it fits your hand and gives you good control over your transmission.

    Hello,
    Cool, Do I have to do anything do make my back up lights come on? I was told I will need to run wires to make my back up lights work and to splice into the (N) safty switch.

    It'll all be coverd in the directions. I believe switches even come with the B&M shifters for neutral safty and back up lights.

    Piece of cake to install. Good instructions and they come with micro switches too. I used a relay too for my back up lights as they're kinda bright! :D
