Thanks Dan, I've already installed the energy bushing kit and the white ring seat from lings honda. Both improved shifter feel but still not 100% so I think I'm going to get the rod above. Cheers

probably a good move mate, I found that the union joint on the standard change rod had a bit of play in it, I woulda bought a new Honda one but they’re discontinued and the joint itself cannot be bought separately so I went with the Spoon one. Upon arrival I compared them, the Spoon rod is slightly thicker and the union joint again is a we bit beefier, but most importantly the new rod had no play in the joint

another important part is the four rubber o rings found at the base of the shift lever (number 26 on the diagram)
when I pulled mine apart to rebuild it these we o rings were totally squashed and out of shape, there was a little bit of play/rattle in that area because of this. But once it was rebuilt back up with the new parts it was nice and solid, NO play the way it should be

As far as I know it’s been discontinued. I ordered one from them too but cancelled my order

No bud the spoon dealer in Oz gaijin garage also have it as a discontinued item.

Yeah I just had word back from Spoon Japan. They were discontinued at the end of 2018.
I musta got one of the last ones produced

My car's going back standard so I'd sell mine if I could find an oem change rod in good condition... trouble is that's why I bought it in the first place every one of them I came across had play in the union joint
