    The only shift kit worth buying is the original from Sick Bike Parts.

    The shift kit from Zoom and others is a cheap Chinese rip off of
    the SBP shifter kit.
    Also the SBP shifter kit was recently updated and is a big improvement
    over the design the Chinese ripped off.

    Ever heard of being penny wise and pound foolish? LOL

    Maybe you can find a used one?

    If like me, you are short on money but long on time, make one. The concept is pretty simple, I will say though to make the high end SBP you will probably spend as much as it would cost to buy, but you could make a passable jackshaft kit for around 50 bucks with some left over bike parts and some imagination.

    LOL

    Ferball is spot on!

    You can build ALL this stuff, including your own frame and 2 stroke engine with little but time and a bunch of scrap parts.

    Circumstances are, we are generally impatient!

    LoL
