So far so good, 300+ miles 200+ shifts and still working. I switched out the 2 nuts and lock washers for ss nylon lockers yesterday. Still researching a replacement shifter. Our local motorcycle salvage yard closed after over 40years in business so it's going to be more difficult to do when you can't physically examine other bikes shifters . I've contacted several shifter makers for specs, but they havn't responded.

That fix looks strong. I was thinking the exact same design. I lost the last 90% of the shifter so I have to fab the toe piece. One of problems with the stock shifter is the frame bolt sleeve needs to be longer and a bearing.

sure if you need it, I paid £30 for it two years ago, saw it as a spare too good to miss up but if you need it because yours is broken then yes,

I think shipping to the USA might be a huge hassle for you?

Ok I went a different direction and pulled the linkage and stock shift lever. I went direct to the transmission with this

Sunline Alloy Shift Lever
Color- Alloy, Size- --
SKU#312979

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/81 ... hift-lever

I chose the 2001 yamaha YZ250

So far it works like a charm...I'm ordering a spare.

This is my own photo.

The shift pattern is the same . The main difference is there's weight hanging on the transmission spline ( not much level is super light) You also have the possibility of damaging the spline if you jump on the lever or crash. The tip folds up on this lever making it safer. If you ride a dirt bike this feels exactly like that and looks much cleaner. Many raptor riders switch direct levers and I didn't find anything that stopped me from making the switch.


Update 09/06/2017

A full week of riding and no problems with the shift lever.
