Numeric cables - loud and too tight?


Recommended Posts

My cables snapped so I had my indie shop replace them with Numeric. I already had the OEM SSK.


The problems after replacing original with Numeric cables are now:


- there's a noise in the cabin, below 3k rpm it's louder than the engine

- the feeling is the 3rd and 5th are now closer together, giving me an uncomfortable feeling I could miss-shift really easily 

- when cold the first/reverse is hard to get in, sometimes it falls out of a gear


Has anyone else had these problems? I've driven it back to the shop but I'm still looking for tips.

If it's jumping out of gear then the cables are definitely not adjusted correctly, or the shifter itself is misaligned.  Definitely take it back and get them to sort it.

OK, it was fixed. Just need to find a solution for the noise, will see if Numeric has any suggestions.


Edit: I found noise is a common problem and for some reason, Numeric doesn't add the tubing set as standard. So back to the shop.
