    GrudgeBox Installation Instructions


        Tightly-Tuned

        • 4° Back Cut Shift Dogs
          More hook for the hold! The 4° back cut angle on all GrudgeBox shift dogs ensures positive gear engagement and eliminates hop out.
        • Shift System
          Shift with certainty! The GrudgeBox features our frictionless linear detent shift system. The shift drum utilizes a fixed spindle design for smooth, low inertia, indexing. It’s easy to find neutral with our redundant neutral detent, which is incorporated into the architecture of the shift system.
          • A) Smooth linear 11/32” detent ball bearing riding on 60 micro ball bearings
          • B) Linear motion is controlled by a caged 24 micro ball bearing assembly
          • C) 44lb/in compression spring
        • New Pawl Design
          Shift with ease! Conventional shifter pawls have a 2-point pivot system. Our new low effort single axis/linear motion shifter pawl rotates from one central pivot point, allowing continuous motion throughout the shift. Overshift inhibitors prevent any
          missed shifts.
        • Speedometer Reluctor Ring
          Stay calibrated! The GrudgeBox utilizes a speedometer reluctor ring for sending the vehicle speed signal through the stock speed sensor, keeping the pulses per mile the same as stock. Your speedometer will indicate the correct speed without the use of a recalibration box. PCM reflash is required for correct gear indication and proper cruise control operation.

        Tough

        • Bigger Gears
          Stronger! The GrudgeBox gears are up to 40% wider than stock for superior strength and durability.
        • Pie Shaped Shift Dogs
          Positive shift engagement! Intended for high horsepower applications and well suited for everyday cruising, the pie shaped shift dogs used in the GrudgeBox provide significantly more dog tooth/pocket landing area for positive dog tooth engagement while in gear.
        • Main Drive Gear Bearing 
          Bulletproof! The GrudgeBox comes with our exclusive double tapered roller bearing assembly (patent pending) to eliminate the all too common stock main drive gear bearing failures.
        • Simpler Pawl Design
          Built for a beating! Conventional shifter pawls have a 2-point pivot system. Our new single axis/linear motion shifter pawl has fewer points of motion and will hold up under high horsepower and aggressive shifting.

        Overdriven

        • New Generation OVERDRIVE
          Cruise at 80 mph with the overdrive 6th gear, lowering RPM on the highway for improved fuel economy, reduced vibration and less wear and tear on the rider.
        • .92 overdrive in 6th gear provides a 250 rpm reduction while cruising at 80 mph.
