Hi, don't know if relevant (i was lookinng at 996 posts) - or indeed if you have already had this checked - but I was reading a lot of posts on the renntech forum regarding the installation of a short shift kit and noticed a lot of posts regarding notchy gear changes and the importance of the correct setup of the cables that the gear changer is connected to.

Apparantly there is a small orange plastic tool which is used to ensure the setup is correct.

There were even posts from people complaining of poor gear changes - who had had new geear boxes fitted and then on discovering the existance of this setup tool had the setup checked and found a marked improvement.

Perhaps worth checking - if you haven't already?

Cheers
