Anyone know if there is an aftermarket shift lever for my 05 wr450. I am duck footed and its hard for me to reach. If I lower it one tooth it is too low, if I raise it 1 tooth it is too high.
Also, where on my boot is the shifter supposed to contact? The top and bottom of my boot or the side? Why are bike shifters and break pedals so close to the frame???
Thanks for the input...

Hammerhead makes shifters and replacement tips that are offset. I'm at work and don't have the website handy ,but I'm sure someone can direct you. They look like really good parts from the ones I've seen in person. WR Dave.:censored:

Try lowering your pegs 10mm by cutting the pipe bit off, then putting it on top and swapping springs from left to right.
Set the shifter up best for shifting while standing cos it's a pain if you have to sit to change.

Wicked Pics INDY, I'm way to jealous as it snows endlessly here. Anyway back to the topic at hand, here is the website for Hammerhead designs http://shifttip.com/index.html these shifters and tips look like very well built parts. WR Dave:prof:

No wonder you need an oil cooler. That would take forever
