Quick shifter/ short throw gear stick

Post by wilmot3 » Tue Oct 02, 2018 12:46 pm

Hi all, anyone know of the availability (or not) of a quick shifter or short throw gear change mechanism available for the 1.6 petrol DIG (2011) please?

Now that is very interesting, the only time I have seen that done is by shortening the gear lever itself, by shortening the lever rod and welding it back together but you have to be top notch at welding.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

I've shortened a gear leaver in the past and it makes a huge difference to the feel of it - would be excellent on the Juke but the reverse selector makes it much more difficult than a simple hacksaw job.
