    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great. Another great part for my 07 Street Glide. Fit perfect. Easy to install. Looks great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great linkage but FYI M8 owners.... I originally bought an aftermarket linkage to save a few bucks and it snapped after about 1,000 miles. I then bought this one and what a difference. This is a solid, heavy, well made linkage that will last forever. There is one problem: The linkage comes with a shifter lever cover. It is straight but the lever on Milwaukee eight models is basically L shaped. This part cannot be used with new models. M8 owners get beat out of a portion of their purchase. My last two pictures show this issue. Even without that part, I'm still glade I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linkage looks great Perhaps it cost a little more than aftermarket but the Harley quality is there and the chrome will last unlike other aftermarket parts.

    Q & A

    Rod End Dimensions

    What are the rod end dimensions? I had one of my rod ends snap at the threads and since Harley does not sell them alone. I would like to know the dimensions so I may purchase new rod ends

    Hey Chris79, The Self-Aligning Rod Ends are sold separately, P/N is 33899-08 and MSRP is $35.89. Any Authorized Harley-Davidson® Dealership can order this part for you. Hope this info helps you out! Rockstar883

    I just purchased a 2017 Road Glide Ultra. Well I purchased this product to put on the Ultra and found that the part will not work.

    The Shifter Rod Lever has changed on the 2017. It now has a 45 degree turn to the left at the top. The Shifter Rod Lever Cover that comes in this kit is straight so it will not work. It looks like there needs to be a new Shifter Rod Lever Cover designed to fit the change.
