This is an EASY install - Replace the sloppy stock linkage ends in 5-10 minutes!

a little adjustment necessary Review by Jim
Bought these for the peace of mind. High quality as expected from DK. Easy install. However, my rod was apparently longer than "normal" so I had to adjust the shift rods after installing them. I also put a flat washer on each side of the joints to allow the rod to flex on the bearings as intended. I can honestly say that now it shifts much quieter, smoother and neutral is much easier to find. This is my 7th "comfort/heat" mod from DK. Will continue to support them as they always have quality and well researched products. (Posted on 3/13/2022)

Heim Joints Review by Temeculamark
Replaced stick ends with The Hein joints Just for peace of mind but was pleasantly surprised how it added a more positive shifting feel. Both with up and down shifting. Neutral seem easier to find. Shipping is always fast as well.
Thank you

Adds durability without much cost Review by BW
The shift linkage ends are known weak points. Now I can ride across the country knowing my linkage ends won't ever break. $30 for peace of mind is cheap. (Posted on 12/18/2021)

welcome surprise Review by mikee
The joints themselves were unremarkable. And not in a bad way. They just simply were what they were supposed to be. Seem like good quality, etc. The main reason I purchased them was it seemed like cheap insurance just in case I found myself one day in BFE with a broken factory rod where the ball popped out. But, after installing them I was surprised to find it eliminated a frustrating problem I'd always had prior. My bike is a 2020 rgs and only has about 7,000 miles on it, but even from day one, finding neutral when parking was a giant pain in the ass. I had to be extremely slow and easy hunting for it or it'd just blow right past neutral. Up or down, it didn't matter. After installing these heim joints, it dawned on me about a week or so later that I was no longer having this issue. The factory joints felt nice and tight after removing the linkage, but still, there must be just enough slack between the two of them that it's what was causing my neutral problem. Now it just clicks in neutral with no problems. No more hunting. (Posted on 10/7/2021)

Great Linkage Review by James
The heim joints was an easy install. Much better quality than the original Harley OEM linkage. Installed in a few minutes.
Shipping charges were a bit high for the small package sent by USPS! (Posted on 8/30/2021)

I’ve bought several of your products and these heim joints are like all the rest. Superior quality and a great value. Fitment is perfect and the function is as described!
Thanks for another GREAT product! You guys are the best! Your videos are fantastic and very informative. With these heim joints installed shifting feels and functions with a more solid feel. Makes finding neutral very easy.

EXCELLENT QUALITY Review by SEHENDR
Heim Joints are excellent quality, installation on my 2009 Road King Classic was not as shown on DK video though. Used my stock rod, but could not use lock nuts as didn't have enough threads so I used thread lock on them. The new joints greatly improved the shift quality. (Posted on 5/5/2021)

Outstanding Review by Jay
Always the first thing I change on a Harley, Product does not come with bolts but no biggie. Ace Hardware has chrome section that sells them. The Harley shifter rod ends are junk and will eventually break. Buy these and have piece of mind. (Posted on 5/4/2021)

Nice..... Very Nice. Review by BW
I ordered a pair for my FLHTK and they work great. The quality and fitment is obsolutely better than stock. No more rattling around! Of course I'm a chrome guy so I Harley hooked me with some chrome bolts and an acorn nut to top it off. (Posted on 5/4/2021)

Great product - works well Review by Hogwart
These work great and are easy to install. The bolts to reattach the linkage to the motorcycle are not included. On my 2018 M8 Harley touring, I needed two 5/16” x 24 bolts. The rear needed a 3/4” long bolt, the front needed 1 1/4” bolt. I used stainless steel. These joints are slightly longer than the factory joints, so if your linkage is already adjusted to the shortest possible length, you might need to rotate the shift levers on the spline.

Heim joints. Review by Chuck
Really didn't expect much. Bought them more as they were less likely to fall off them OEM. Was pleasantly surprised that it was very apparent that shifting just improved dramatically. Just so much smoother. (Posted on 4/21/2021)

Great product Review by Rich
The heim joints really clean up the sloppy stock Harley part. The linkage is tighter and the shifting is much smoother. I would recommend this product to every Harley owner with stock linkage. (Posted on 11/15/2018)
