Clarification requested: When you pop up the orange shift cable lock, does it need to come all the way out, or just up and lose when recentering shifter in the neutral gate?
Thanks.

Forgive my ignorance as my SVTF is my first mtx but I was wondering if adjustment is needed periodically or just when there is a problem.

I know the saying, "If it isn't broken don't fix it" so I ask those who know...

Thanks.

Adjustments to what? Not even sure how you would adjust the gears in your transmission to begin with. What is your car doing?

Lol my car is not doing anything but BMXer said "It actually might feel better than before if it hadn't been adjusted in awhile or ever."

So I was wondering if I should adjust the linkage just for "driveability"

I would leave it as is if shifting isnt a problem.
