Palmer products gear lever
« on: 23 July, 2019, 02:19:51 AM »
My Palmer products gear lever arrived in record time of 5 days all the way to NZ from  The UK and is now fitted

What a difference a small piece of metal makes to a bike totally transformed the way the bike shifts  especially in the shorter shifting  position

I went for a ride with it in the standard position and then the shorter position  and even in the standard position it makes a big difference over the stock lever

well worth the money and the 5 mins it takes to fit it well recommended

 :047:  What, no pics?  I find the stock lever a tad short, even for my size 9's.

I have the shifter peg on the furthest out position and the gear change adjustable rod  on the short shift position

Good timing . My stock shift lever broke off about 2 inches from the end for no apparent reason this past weekend. Drilled a hole in what was left, and double nutted a bolt in there. Still good after 700 miles. An entire stock shifter assembly is $117 all in. A used one, with the footpeg assembly is $55 all in. The palmer 
lever alone is something like $90 I think. What say you guys??

I just bought the used one for $59 delivered. Comes with the linkage, footpeg, mount, and shield. Figured that if the lever had metal fatigue, so does the rest of it. Gonna use the old one as a spare. :031:

I'm a 48 EU or 13.5 USA.. In boots the stock shifter was nuts.
