    That hard shift into second gear has been discussed by many, some have more issue than others. I came across this discussion on another forum and apparently this shift kit works. Has anybody had experience with Shift STAR kits?
    Kits are produced for all Boulevard models.

    The shift star is a good add on for pre 2010 models, post 2010 its a waste of time. Either way dont expect miracles from a heavier spring added to the outside of the gearbox

    Purchased one of these Shift Star Kits from FactoryPro back in September. Was advised they were waiting on manufacture of more stars. Sent a couple of emails. Never heard back from them!
