I have seen the cable x unit and the tailshaft but all these are kind of expensive, looking for a cheaper option.
I got the factory column shift to work, with a modified shift rod

street and performance also has a conversion.

hope you have a ecu to shift that tranny. if you do why not convert to electrical speedo? it may be cheaper. If your gonna play you have to pay, is my moto.

Here is my swap. I just cant believer there isnt a cheap option do you this, the tailshaft cost more then the whole tranny, I dont understand the link above how that works, to install the cable into the tranny
