shifter suggestions?

Hi all,

I'm a new member here, great community by the way. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for an aftermarket shifter? I've browsed some of the short throws such as the barton, but I'm not a fan of the size. It seems the sit quite a bit lower than stock, which sits pretty low for my comfort any ways. I like the look of some of the taller hurst shifters but can't seem to find the right model, maybe I haven't looked hard enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

MGW all the way man! Put mine in and have loved it ever since. No comfort complaints about the knob placement in relation to the driver either.

MGW shifter works good on mine as well. It doesn't lock me out of 3rd when driving hard anymore.

MGW and Barton are the best shifters for the MT82

---------- Post added at 03:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:29 PM ----------

Barton w/ 2 post bracket*

The main problem with the manual trans is not the short throw itself, but the factory bracket it comes with...

So, replacing the bracket would also improve things quite a bit?

I think I saw that barton sells one separately?

Somewhat with just the bracket. You will get quite a bit more vibration and noise just changing the bracket though.

I replaced the bracket with a Barton. Huge difference with little increase in noise and a solid feel going into gear. No more missing 3rd at the drag strip.

I've posted this cpl times regarding the Barton bracket. If u take the bottom of bracket back of, cut a two inch section of bicycle inertube, slide it over the transmission input shaft, then reinstall bracket, it will reduce a lot of the noise. I've had no issues with it slipping on the rubber or anything and the rubber provides an insulator to reduce a lot of the noise transmitted by metal on metal from drivetrain directly into the cabin. Still not back to perfect stock lvl but definite improvement.

^^ I may try that. I have the Barton Shifter with 2 post bracket and even though it works great it feels like you're driving a Cement mixer with the drivetrain noise. I will be switching to an MGW but adding some rubber may be worth a shot

I had the Barton with 2 post, then went MGW, it's 100% quieter... I do miss the slightly shorter throws from the Barton tho and it was a great shifter. But the shift action is now much more confident on the MGW. Don't over think it, just do it !! U can easily sell the Barton

When you say transmission input shaft, are you referring to the linkage rod that runs from the shifter to the transmission? Forgive my confusion but input shaft means something else to me with respect to transmissions. Thanks.
