I'm working on a beautiful 1967 650SS that has rear sets. They are pretty but downshifting (raising the lever) is nearly impossible. The throw is very long. With boots, I cannot raise/twist my foot high enough to downshift. With regular shoes, it's barely possible. The owner wants to keep the look but wants to be able to shift - he cannot get into 1st gear at all. I've verified that the gearbox works great - it's definitely caused by the rear sets. Does anyone have a 650SS (or similar) with rear sets that work? If so, can you point me to where I can get them?
