    finally got the spb version 2 shift kit mounted up. they are not a direct fit for the super rat motors. i had to drill the holes that attach it to the motor to make it fit. it ends up shifting the whole rig towards the side of the output shaft. i had to then drill a little notch in the mount to clear the chain. even with the extra work, this kit is light years ahead of the zoom shift kit or even the first gen sbp kit. i love that its all one piece.

    Where did you get yours? People online want stupid money for them (over 60 on ebay!).
