Fresh from Japan is the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal.

The Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal is a product that has been released by Works Bell specifically to meet the requirements of The Tuners Group's racing customers.

It consists of the heart of the Works Bell Paddle Shifter Kits as seen on vehicles like the 350Z, RX-8, and other high end semi-sequential Japanese vehicles.

In the past, the Works Bell Paddle Shifter mechanism was only available as part of a vehicle specific kit.

The Tuners Group had many enquiries from our racing customers who wanted to either:

Works Bell in Japan reacted to demand from The Tuners Group's racing customers, and in November 2008 released the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal - a universal paddle shifter ideal for custom installs on racing cars and road cars alike.

What vehicles can it be used on ?

The Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal is just that - a universal product.

It's uses are limited only by your imagination.

We have had customers fit the Paddle Shifter NEO Universal on everything from BMW M3 CSL's run at the Old Nurburgring to the 500hp 6-litre engined Revo off road racer which won the South African Absa Off Road Championship for special vehicles, a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, the Toyota Aristo / Lexus GS, Nissan 300ZX / Fairlady Z, and a number of custom applications in drag racing cars, offroad racers, rally cars and circuit racing cars.

Electrically the microswitches in the Paddle Shifter NEO Universal work just like the microswitches used in almost all sequential shift vehicles that use a shift gate for the gearlever, ensuring compatibility with a very wide range of vehicles.

We have not had a single case of the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal not working on any of our customers cars who we have shipped one to.

More Info

Developed by a collaboration between Works Bell and Night-Pager (Keihin Exact Mill Ltd) in Japan, the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal allows you to shift without moving your hands from the steering wheel or use the paddle shifter as an extremely versatile switching device in custom and racing applications.

The Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal places specially designed ergonomic carbon fibre paddles behind your steering wheel. You can shift gears just like an F1 car with a 7mm stroke of the precision engineered paddles or use it to free your hands from "push to use" style steering wheel mounted buttons in racing applications.

The carefully made, beautifully detailed Paddle Shifter is composed of machined aluminium alloy and finished with a very hard wearing Alumite treatment.

The carbon fibre paddles are adjustable to match the size of your hand or steering wheel by up to 15 mm on each side.

The adjustment range allows for distances between the outer edges of the paddles of 270mm to 304mm.

The microswitch wiring is beautifully concealed within the shift mechanism for a perfect finish.

The Paddle Shifter NEO Universal ships with wiring installed, ready to be adapted to your application, so you don't need to mess around soldering wiring to the microswitches - it's already done.

The wiring can also be attached to Works Bell's detachable Rapfix II Quick Release systems and Works Bell make a 4 contact version of the Rapfix II which is ideal for use with the Paddle Shifter NEO Universal.

The Paddle Shifter NEO Universal is 100% engineered and manufactured in Japan, with the kind of quality and precision only found in genuine Japanese made products.

Steering Wheel Compatibility

What's in the box ?

untitled image

The package includes the Paddle Shifter mechanism made from machined aluminium alloy and finished with a very hard wearing Alumite treatment (as shown in the photo at right) with precision microswitches installed and prewired, and adjustable carbon fibre paddles.

The microswitch wiring is beautifully concealed within the shift mechanism for a perfect finish.

The Paddle Shifter NEO Universal ships with wiring installed, ready to be connected to your custom application, so you don't need to mess around soldering wiring to the microswitches - it's already done.

untitled image

If you wish to run the wiring externally, Works Bell also makes the Works Bell Steering Column Wiring Plate (available separately - shown at right), which allows the wiring for products like the Works Bell Paddle Shifter to exit the steering column neatly for custom wiring installs.

By using the Works Bell Wiring Plate, wiring can be exited from the internal section of the steering column via a notched cavity in the wiring plate, and wiring run externally.

The Paddle Shifter NEO Universal is a shifter, not a tranmission control computer.

The Paddle Shifter NEO Universal can be used with a number of aftermarket sequential shift computers and aftermarket tranmission control computers, and with a number of factory sequential shift computers.

Can the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal Be Used with the SupraStick Automatic Transmission Controller ?

Yes it can.

We have a number of customers who are using the Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal with the SupraStick Automatic Transmission Controller.

The SupraStick Automatic Transmission Controller is an aftermarket controller that allows certain automatic transmissions to run in semi-sequential mode.

If your car already has a factory electronically controlled semi-sequential transmission (with a tiptronic style shift gate or factory paddle shifters) then you will NOT need a SupraStick to use our Works Bell Paddle Shifter NEO Universal.

If your car does not have a factory semi-sequential transmission, but instead has a traditional automatic transmission, you can find info on the SupraStick here ...
