Gear shift loose

My gear shift seems to be working loose and I can't keep it tight. Should I add a lock-washer or locktite to keep things tight?

Odd, it didn't look that soft before I rode into it...

If it won't stay tight, you may be missing a bushing or a spacer. Check the parts diagram to make sure it's put together right.

I really like Heartland Honda (I have no affiliation with them) great prices frequent discount coupons right on their website under Company Info and fast shipping. After trying lots of others (like Partzilla and my horrible local dealer) found these folks to be the best.
