My shifter started squeaking when i move the shifter...its very annoying. what would be the best way to remedy this? Can i just spray some wd-40 down the shifter handle area?

My guess would be the bushing are starting to stiffen up due to rust on the pivot shaft. Does the shifter feel tight also? You are probably going to need to pull the cover off to get at the pivot area. Soaking it with wd-40 then another heavier lube should do it, depending on how bad it is>
