    We got away without shifting ramps and pickup pins for a long time, so I'm sure it does shift fine. Just letting you know that the tab is there to indicate the proper position of the ring. Just call it an OCD mechanic's thing that once you know how it's supposed to be done, it's tough not to see it when it's done "wrong".

    Had to replace the wire harness on one of my Sigma odometers. Miraculously I must have planned for this in advance: I had two brand new replacement harnesses in my parts bin!

    Finishing this off. I'll wrap the bars after some test rides for fit. Could absolutely use some more tweaks and parts swaps, but will be nice to have it road worthy again.
