Note: You need to send your unit in to be modified / exchanged . There is NOT an option to pay a deposit and send yours in later due to a number of units being lost/damaged recently. These collars are hard to replace so please send via a signed-for and insured postal service,e.g. Royal mail special delivery.
This modification represents the ultimate selector shaft upgrade in that it offers a significant improvement over the original, and out-performs the O-Ring mod in terms of tightness and longevity. Most selector shaft/collar assemblies are now moderately to heavily worn (typically wearing in an oval although this can be hard to see by eye) and the O-Ring cannot compensate for all of it and/or wears out quickly. The modified collar is bored out and sleeved with a self-lubricating bush that returns the collar to true round (from oval). The bush/bearing surface area is increased to 500% of the original and straddles any wear grooves in the selector shaft itself thus returning this assembly to as good as new. It should also last longer than the original due to the increased bearing surface).

Special Note(s): 1) Damage: These collars can be extremely tight and often damaged during removal . If you send in a chewed up collar I will clean and reface it at much as I can. This pro cess can add one day to the turn around time . 2) Processing Time: To allow some flexibility this is quoted as two working days, however they are almost always completed in one day and posted back the following day. 3) Insurance/Postage : Be advised these collars are now virtually irreplaceable so be sure to use a signed-for and adequately insured postal service when sending yours in.
