Hmmmm. Now that I think about it, I get the 1st gear lockout too randomly. I’ve always considered it a transmission issue, not really anything to do with the short shifter. I’m sure it would happen stock too, it’s just the short shifter brings it out more due to the shorter throw and less movement of the shifter cables.

No big deal to me. It’s like once every couple hundred 1st gear engagements or so. Can go months without it happening.

Lmk if you find the cause.
