    I would first check torque on clamp bolts if you didn’t do it already. They go loose with time and are primary cause of play...

    I had the same problem . Had some brass inserts made . You could try cutting up a feeler gauge as a temp fix and a bit of grease . Be carefull when undoing the allen bolt they have lock tight on so tight . .

    Just remember the pivot shaft may not be round anymore so that would need to have a minimum cleanup and any bushes made, bespoke, to suit the slightly smaller diameter.

    Oil-lite bushes will be better than brass as they offer some in-built lubrication.

    ZRX1200 gear lever pivot is larger diameter than 1100 and has a bush.
    You need the 1200 foot peg mount and lever to match of course.

    That's what I've done...perfect now.

    See the forum is not dead , it just takes a new thread to bring it alive. The zrx forum has been around for a few years now and most or all of the problems have been covered. Its still good to get a refresher thread come up. Keep them coming , keep us looking. Cheers all
