gear-selector-claw-metal

Stuck in gear: The selector "claw" metal is too soft. Separate the "claw" from the plate, rub away edges and burrs. '04+ is made from hardened steel and has a darker color. See old and new together below: Note the two tiny screws (above). Because the newer spring makes the shifter taller, I initially tried a longer screw and a brass collar (on the right in the photo), but it was too tall and hit the underside/outer edge of the clutch gear teeth. So I had to keep the original screw, narrow the head down to just the width of the dowel.
