Evo 8 MR, 5 speed swop

Hi guys, my 6 speed is going on place will be a 5 speed box. My question is.... Do I need to change anything else? Linkage or shifter or???
The 5 speed is out of a 6rs
Cheers

if its a genuine 6rs box its likly to be VERY shortly geared and only any good for around 120 mph ,cheak the numbers on it to see

i believe the linkage needs to be swopped

You’ll need shifter, (handle), cables and gearbox mountings, I have a picture of everything that’s needed, if you want to message me a number or email I’ll send you it across.

Just a single gearbox top mount.. the rest is the same..
also, the speed sensor is different so you need to modify the part of the speed sensor loom or get a used/new one.
