TOOL STEEL SHIFT SHAFTS -

APE has designed a tool-steel shift shaft.

The oem shift shafts bend and flex, which wallers out and oblongs the shift shaft holes in the cases which eventually scraps the cases.

The solution...... It is well known that APE builds the strongest, no flex, tool steel wrist pins in the industry. The very same pins that Spiderman McBrides uses to run those five second ETs. So why not use this expertise to build a no flex shift shaft. And that is just what we have done.

Kawasaki Z1/KZ billet steel high gear shift fork.     

This is the one that goes over the shaft drum. This shift fork is a one piece heat treated alloy steel fork. It features thicker tube walls with minimal cut outs for better support around the drum. This equates to a smoother, more positive shift. 
**NEW forks are no longer available from Kawasaki!!

TRANSMISSIONS

TRANSMISSION UNDERCUTTING

Undercutting a transmission involves machining angels on the engagement dogs and slots to prevent the transmission from jumping out of gear under load. There are three types of undercuts available from APE

Racecut...
This cut is performed on the side of the dogs that are loaded on acceleration. Recommended for hot street bikes and drag racers, dwarf cars, etc.

Up and down cut....
Both sides of the dog are cut to also prevent jumping out of gear on down shifts. Recommended for road Racing.
