Default Loose rear sets...

Hi guys! New on the block after posting in the 'noob section'.

Anyhoo... I have a fz1 gen II with some speed king rear sets fitted.

The problem is, they are loose at the end when it clamps around the gear change spindle (unsure of the correct term, excuse me!).

I've tried clamping it together while doing up the bolt but no such luck. The problem is that both holes are threaded so the bolt cannot pull the second thread in. To remedy this, it is obvious that the first threaded hole would need to be drilled out so the second can be pulled together to clamp the spindle... (make any sense?).

Just seeing if anyone has done this before I do it as I'm worried it may be a possible MOT failure?

Thanks chaps and chapesses!

Sorry I'm not familiar with these maybe some pictures of them and the issue, we could have a better look and maybe a answer. Welcome by the way and sorry for the slow response.

i believe you are talking about the connecting rod from the gear levers to the gear selector near the idling screw.

post up a pic, it will do wonders..

That's correct, can't post a pic as I'm working away from home.

I'm just going to drill it out, I'm 99% sure it is a sure remedy just strange that the company makes it that way...
