Unhappy 76 ironhead forward controls

I need some help guys this is my first H-D a 76 iron, I have started the rebuild and got the bike running. The problem I am having at this point is have gotten my new set of forward controls I have the rear break set up fine it works great... But the shifter is a whole diffrent story, I have the foot rest and toe shifter in place, But when I took the stock shifter off and went to place the new part in it's place I noticed that it is not splined at all, It is perfectly smooth, The instruction sheet states Place this over the shaft tighten the two bolts down and place the linkage rod and adjust for shifter comfort. Now I new this would not work but I tried it anyway's so what happens is you try to shift everything moves like a dream EXCEPT the actual transmission shifter rod...What am I missing here any clue or any idea would be great. This is not the way I wanted to start off my first chopper build.. I have the hardtail section the new tank and seat and ape's I just wanted to ride the dang thing for the summer before tearing it down.......... HELP

I'm not familiar with that setup but you should be able to get a splined shift lever for almost nothing.

You may have to make some modification to it. Or do like bluefin said and just find one with the little splines and mod it to your setup.

Mine slipped too, so I made my own lever and welded it on.
I take my bourbon, like my women ~ 19 years old and mixed up with coke.

Drill it and through bolt it. Use grade 8 and torque it down tight. Put a rubber O-ring behind it and red locktite the shaft too....
