My Prowler is a 2006 and it had the original style shift linkage which was some crappy metal plates. Seemed to shift okay, but I just didn't like the linkage after seeing that they changed it on the 2007's. On the 2007's and some newer ones they changed to more like a turnbuckle style. I liked that design better. However after installing it, I noticed that my Prowler just never seemed to shift correctly. So I played with it more today, and realized that the new linkage was just too long to install it correctly how the manual says. The linkage would bottom out, but still wasn't short enough to be even with the linkage on the motor. So I cut like a 1/4" off of the threads, and it still wasn't short enough if I had the lock nut installed that comes with the linkage. So I took off the locking nut and shortened the shifter linkage until it was even with the motor linkage and installed it (without nut). Tested it in my driveway and it was shifting like a dream. Was hitting every gear nice and easy. So if anybody is having problems and they have this style shifter linkage, then you might want to check and see if it is just too long.....
