Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I've toyed with the idea of getting the kit and trying to sell on the grips. Might go with a first gear mounted heat troller. I really hate the combo of crappy...

So it sounds to me like maybe first gear would have done it. In second you'll run lower engine RPM's, so whenever you get down to disengage speed, it will, well, disengage. Maybe you can fine tune...
