5X Racing Shifter Rebuild Kits for 1990-1997 Mazda Miata

Miata Shifter Rebuild Kit

NASRK

The perfect upgrade to ANY Miata!

If your shifter needs any new boots or bushings, it’s best to replace them all at the same time while you're deep within the shifter assembly. Also clean out any old fluid and gunk, and refill the turret with fresh fluid to complement the new bushings. Our basic kit uses Genuine OEM Mazda components with an option to upgrade to our Race Spec Kit with our famous race proven 5X Racing Bronze Shifter Bushing

Since it is impossible to change the washers and bushings without destroying the lower shift boot, we include this in every kit. You can re-use the upper shift boot if it is in good condition, so we give you the choice of including it in the kit or not. Use the selector on the right to configure your kit.

To learn about the process of rebuilding your shifter, please check out our Instruction Manuals and Installation Guides in the Tech Center.

Kits Include:

Basic Rebuild Kit:

  • OEM Mazda wave washers, change bushings, and one shim
  • OEM Mazda Anti-Rotation Bushing (insert for large ball on shifter)
  • OEM Mazda lower shift boot from 06+ MX-5 (is superior and fits all Miata's)
  • OEM Mazda plastic shifter bushing
  • OEM Mazda Upper Shift Boot (optional)

    Race Spec Rebuild Kit:

  • All contents from basic kit with our Bronze Shifter Bushing instead of the OEM plastic bushing

  • Shipping: Free USPS Priority
    Pricing: $87.00

    Description

    Our Miata shifter rebuild kits use all OEM Mazda components with your option of the OEM plastic shifter tip bushing or our upgraded race proven Bronze shifter bushing. The OEM plastic bushings will eventually become brittle from the heat-cycling and break, so we of course recommend upgrading to our bronze bushing for your track or street based Miata to ensure longevity and strength where you need it the most.

    NOTE! We've recently redesigned our bushings to better accommodate the wide range of tolerances in worn shifters and new shifters, which contributed to either a loose or tight fit. Previous designs incorporated a "snap-in" fit, which we also eliminated because we found a way to not need it in our new design. In the end, this current design will work best overall, as it will install easier and accommodate shifters with broken assembly bushings and boots as well.

    Best shifter rebuild kit around...

    I just recently purchased the 5XRacing Shifter rebuild kit for my 92' 5-speed. WOW, what a difference does it make! My shifter turret was just torn to shreds, from the previous owner, and then the 10K I put on it since July of last year. There were no instructions out of the box, but with the Miata.net writeup on how to rebuild the 5-speed turret's, it was a simple job that took an hour to do. Simply remove the center console, pull off the old top and lower boot, remove the old boot off of the shifter, but the new guide boot in the shifter, drop the Bronze shifter bushing in and re-fill the turret and re-assemble with all the new parts. My total was 108.62 for the top and lower boot, and Bronze bushing required with a 6.00$ 2-day shipping charge. I cannot stress how important this is for your transmission... It now has stopped the 1st gear grind that I normally would get putting it into first at anything above 7MPH... And honestly, all of the rebuild parts were straight from Japan, GENUINE Mazda parts.

    Thanks, 5XRacing. I'll be rockin' the sticker you guys dropped in the box too, on the car!

    Thanks for the review Jonathan! We're glad you're happy with our kit. There are instructions for the kit, however there is too many pages to include in our packaging (and to print), so we make them available in our Tech Center as a PDF download here:

    Looks like you've figured it out already, but hopefully it helps future customers.

    Down load their instructions. Read them all the way thru. The only things I did different were instead of a spacer I used a nut, and I used grease to hold the bronze bushing on the shaft. It feels great. You guys rock.

    Full Shifter Rebuild w/ Boots and Bronze Shifter Bushing - GLORIOUS

    After my stock shifter finally start giving way, it was so loose in the turret that it had about 3" of play while in gear, I decided to do some research on what I could do to upgrade the kit. Well look no further than 5xRacing. The full kit they sell is without a doubt worth every penny. Installation was moderately complicated, just take pictures as you go so you know where all of the parts get installed and in what orientation. Had mine in with the upgraded bronze shifter bushing, in under 2 hours just taking my time. Needless to say once it was in and I took it for a test drive, I re-fell in love with how well the miata shifts. It's notchy and let's you know "yeah I'm in that gear" which I absolutely love, as it leaves no guess work whether or not you're in gear. Make sure you take your time to shim the nylon bushings in the turret appropriately as well. Use too many shims and the car will not go into reverse, the shifter will be too tight. My miata took 1 shim to make it appropriately go into all gears without fuss. This kit was absolutely worth every penny, it was the gateway modification for me to start wanting to dump more money into the car! Thanks 5xracing for getting me hooked on this car again!

    Awesome

    I wanted to drive my 92 around before i posted a review and now after a month, the results are great. I got the whole kit including the bronze shifter bushing and i cant belive the difference the kit makes. My shifting is smooth while at the same time the shifter is stiffer. The price is fair and u get oem mazda parts. defenetly have that 5x decal on my windshield. Great job guy's

    Went all the way...

    Bought the shifter rebuild kit, bronze, with both boots with the intention of doing the simple task....before I got to that point the clutch took a left turn so I bought a new Stage 1 kit with flywheel. Then ran up on a completely rebuilt tranny for dirt cheap. The rebuild kit went into the new tranny and all of it went into my 97. OMG !!! I've driven 2016's that weren't this tight !! Awesome kit !!

    Picked up a 91 Miata a few months ago. I noticed the shifter was real sloppy and had a lot of play even when in gear. Kit was an easy install and was great quality. The old plastic bushing was old and brittle. This kit makes a night and day difference; well worth the money spent. Shipping was a lot faster than expected as well!

    Great kit and great service

    Everyone told me to rebuild my shifter and get the bronze bushing because my shifter was getting sloppy so that's exactly what I did. First off, I want to say that I had a big problem with the shifter where it didn't want to go into reverse. I put my oem bushing back in instead of the bronze and it worked fine. Disappointed, I emailed 5x racing and not only did they send me a new bushing, but also did free shipping. They took the time to really make sure I was happy and did just that. Now that I have the new bronze bushing in shifting gears 1-5 feels amazing in my 95. Also, reverse works! Thanks for all the help 5x racing. I strongly recommend this product (with the bronze bushing) and encourage everyone to get it since it shifts amazing. If you have any problems email them because they are very helpful

    Amazing product, Amazing service!

    My shifter had 190K miles on it, bought the rebuild with the bronze bushing and it was a night and day difference. I'd also like to say the shipping was fast and they adjust the price of shipping if it ends up being cheaper. It's the only company that I know that does this. Outstanding. I will be passing the word that 5XRacing is the only place to shop!

    Quality kit and simple to install

    Ordered the kit with the bronze bushing for my 90 Miata. Simple to install especially with the 5xracing instructions. Improved my shift feel greatly over my old torn boots.

    it has been a few months since installing this on my 1990 miata. My stock shifter had about 140000 km on it and every time i would downshift from 5 to 4 id miss and go into 2nd, my boots were torn and it was a mess. Decided id rebuild it, did some research, came across this product and decided to give it a try. Shipping was very quick and install was straight forward. probably the one of the best upgrade i have done to my miata so far, this makes the car that much better and fun to drive, this is a must do upgrade to any miata. Very pleased with this kit, even after a few months it still feels great. Very happy customer.

    Kit included everything and it could not have been easier to disassemble and re-install. My old boots were completely shot. This kit along with some new fluid has the transmission good as new.
