Yeah,the shaft is ok.I have tighten it 100 times.I also have used loc-tite on it.Its The large screw that goes thru the back and the heel/toe part goes on it.If you tighten it too much then you kinda have to force it with your heel or toe and it defeats the purpose of it...

Something is wrong. You might call Kury and see if they will exchange it assuming it is a new install. Mine has been on for many miles and many years. I can't remember if there are any washers in there it has been so long ago.

When I got back for at trip through the gold country I noticed mine was wobbling. Took it off when I got home and tighten it up from the back and it works fine now.

Hope this help.:oops:

Heel/toe

Thanks for all the comments.Let me ask this...when you put the large screw thru the back to hold the shifter on,did it have any kind of washer ?? Mine did not..just the screw...

You are missing a part

there is a bushing that you are missing. It looks sort of like a 1/2 in piece of tub that the bolt goes thru and it in turn takes up the slack between the bold and the other outer parts. Without it there is going to be so much wobble that you will surely miss gears etc.

I would be afraid to answer that one cause I have a CSC kit and don't know about the clearance on a Hannigan.

I stripped a bolt on mine a few days ago and had to punch it out. But, mine has never wobbled. Like others said, I would return it for a replacement.

Have the 4038 Kuryakyn on our trike and it does feel lose. I have checked it and is tight. Not missing any parts. I got this back from Kuryakyn.

Hello Jack,

That shifter requires a large amount of play to keep from binding up. Feel free to contact me with any further questions.

Thank You!

The OP mentioned a wobble from side to side. Kuryakyn mentioned a play which I interpret means a bit of looseness from gear-to-gear. Not from side-to-side.

Mine has play, but not a side wobble.

Mine is on the outside but it should not make a difference on the shifter. I just make sure mine did not bind when I put it back together you can add shims for side to side. You want the play up and down

Shifter

Thanks. I added a washer and it bound up. Think I had to big of a washer. Will try a smaller to fit in the grove a little better.
