Why do you still have the foot shifter? What is the small lever on the end of the new gear shifter for?

Ahh, of course. With a hand shifter, you have to have a foot clutch. My other question still remains - what is the lever on the gear shift lever?

would be my guess the lever is the clutch, and then you push/pull the lever to shift, and he hasn't removed the heel/toe shifter yet but it is not connected and does nothing. removing it could be problematic without some fabricated spacers to take up where it mounts.

years ago viking motorsports out of Fontana (or maybe it was Upland) California (company now closed I believe) built a custom VTX1800 with a handle shifter similar to this. was horrible to ride, but it was built for show, not to be practical.


HA found the bike, you can see the side shift by his left leg:

It was kinda a joke, man. Your bike your money, do what you want. That is a strange one, though.
agreed. not sure where you are but I've seen some fugly customizations to bikes in L.A. I've got a neighbor with a 2007 GSX-R 600 or 750 with ape hangers on it. and more stickers than paint.

not my neighbors bike, but apparently the ape hangers on a sport bike is a thing, pulled this off the GXSR forums awhile back.

Front. Gear arm. Shifter. Not. Removed yet. As. I. May. Use it as. Foot. Clutch
I'll. Use. Bicycle. Chain. Link to. Clutch. Arm.

The. Leaver on. Pipe. Is. Clutch. Leave. From. Handle. Bar 1 inch
It a. Little. Tight. Hand grip On. Pipe. As. Cable. Length.

.dots and. Sentences on. Wording in. Describing. Is. My. Phone. Does. It. I. Have. Large. Fingers. .
Google. Word. Check. Just. Does it. .
I got. Grade 3. Education. And. English. Is. Hard to. Understand. In. Australian .
It. Takes. Long. Time. To. Rid. Dots. So. I. Gave. Up. Long. Time. Ago ..

I'm on a. Budget. So. I. Make. Things. From. Problem. Solving.
I. Guess. Wanting. To. Live. The. American. Dream of owning a. Chopper. Custom.

ChopperHopper, Its cool that you are making your own mods to your ride according to YOUR taste, you keep doing you no matter what the naysayers say, it isn't their ride. Although i may not like the style or function of some of what you have done i still find it interesting to see what other people around the world like and the skill it takes to do your own work. I don't care about the dots after every word either, i can still read it. LOL. Keep posting pictures of your work.
