Hi Dan,

For the gear stick, see the following pages:

If you look closely, you can see the gear stick in the following photos
of my kart:

On a different kart, I done the following gear setup linkage:

I found the gear change very sensitive, and had to adjust the linkage to
try and make it work smoother.
I also tried mounting the gear change lever directly to the gearchange
shaft in the gearbox, however the gearchange was too sensitive. Perhaps
it depends on what your dirt bike engine is like.

I hope this helps.
Best of luck,
