as i pulled into the parking lot at work, coming in a little too fast i started braking to make the hard left into the covered parking for bikes . well the parking lot had been repainted sunday and my half worn mt21 hit a fresh line of paint and down i went!LOL! picked er up and found my MSR shifter twisted upward at the hinge. it did hit the case cover a nicked it good but no hole in the case! had the stock one been on still, i'm positive it would have gone into the case!:bonk: :bonk: :bonk: :thumbsup:

that would help, but where the shifter dinged the case was above the horizontal center line of the case.

Wow, I wouldn't think the shifter could even get up that high, do you have yours adjusted fairly high?

You mention that you thought you'd have holed the case cover if you still have the stock one on it. What kind of case cover do you have on it?

for some reason the MSR shifter when installed is either way too low or just a hair high. so i went with a hair high.

no doubt the stock one would have punctured the case. i dont have a case cover/saver. i ment right through the actual generator cover.

What is different about the MSR shifter that it saved the case where the stock one wouldn't?

Also, I fell and bent my stock shifter so bad it was actually pointing straight up! What's more, I was able to bend it almost back to original shape, rotated it by one spline and remounted it. The shifter is back in the original spot and works perfectly. XR durability:prof: There's a couple of vise and pliar marks but it adds to the effect:busted:

its an extremely stout piece of steel. i had to beat the heck out of it with a large ball pein hammer to get it semi straight again. i couldnt even bend it back in a vice with channel locks. the stock one seemed to bend if you looked at funny.

i just got the back replaced because a hole got ripped in it between the tread. i got a dunlop 909 of somting with blocky square tread. i think i had about 500 on mine before they ripped and about 50 percent tread.
