    This crap happened to me the two days ago. Inner/rear shift lever came off while riding. I am furious. Last year this crap happened to my outter/front shift lever. I am livid.

    Did Harley address this at the factory at some point? In other words, are there later manufactured 2016's that don't have this issue?

    Just curious, but are you running stock shifter pegs? Have you ever adjusted the angle of the front and/or heal shifter? I'm wondering if those who have replaced their pegs and adjusted the angle, have avoided the problem of these falling off, because by default they would have been forced to tighten everything down?

    Running stock shifters. The angle of the shifters were made more parallel last year when the front/outer lever wore out the spline. So since July of last year I was riding with the shifters essentially parallel and using bother the front and rear shifters. I actually tightened the front/outter lever as it was feeling a bit loose. and did want to wear out the spline like last year and have the same issue. Unfortunately I thought I was good but did not check the inner/rear lever which apparently was loose as all hell. So I learned something. Of course I had to order a long enough 1/4 hex socket bit to the damn bolt. I have not attempted to tighten it yet. Will do so today. Like I said I am livid.

    Should still be under warranty. Maybe you should have Harley deal with it?

    Well, so much for my theories. I just checked mine, and the outside one was definitely loose. I removed the bolt, put some locktite on it, and tightened it down. Did the same to the inside one. Checked everything, and it's good and tight.

    While your checking them don't forget the rear arm on the trans , if you strip that one your looking at serious coin to replace that shaft >

    I was shifting into 2nd and the lever went to the floor and flopped around. Luckily I was only a couple of miles from the dealership. The lever was tight but the shaft/ spline was loose. The said they greased the spline and tightened the lever and did not need to replace anything. I have ridden a couple hundred miles since and no issues.

    I don't see how the shaft and spline could slip but they said it happens, there was some sand in it that caused the problem.

    So. I was not able to resolve it myself. I ended up getting the bike in 3rd gear and took to dealer. At first they told me they would be able to look at it on Tuesday, mind you it was a Friday that I am dropping it off. So I was wven more pissed but they had a lot of work to do. About 4 hours later they called me and said my bike was ready. So that made me happy of course. The replacement part and work was under warranty. Funny thing is that was the last day of my normal warranty. I am glad i sprung for the cash for the extended sercice plan. Apparently it is going to be needed.
