Don't feel bad, though. My R80 ST has a sloppy shifter pedal, although its a different design. It has a bronze bushing that appeared to be the worn culprit. I obtained a new bushing (OEM) and discovered it was was as sloppy as the one in the shifter lever before pressing it into place.

Edit: Just an off-the-wall thought: If you have any shops locally that can knurl valve guides and your exisitring shifter has a solid bushing in it, you may be able to get it knurled to take out some of the slop. Old school machining at its best.

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.
