So I snapped the arm off my shifter and wanted to replace it... OEM is like 53 bucks. Seems like a used shifter (or complete rearset assembly) is a good 30-40 bucks in the for sale section, and I'm NEVER quick-enough on the draw to get in while the getting is good. So I googled and came up with this...

Think this will fit/work? Looks similar to OEM, anyone know any reasons I shouldn't buy this? I mean 17.x is cheap as hell. Yeah, I know I can just put a bolt through the arm-less shifter, but I'd prefer to just replace it as long as it doesn't cost a ton of cash. *every* *single* *time* I rig something on my own, it ends up breaking and taking out everything around it. My luck I'd be shifting, the bolt would pop off mid-corner, and I'd wipe out or something. My karma is hell (god knows why).

I dont know about the shifter, but I bought a set of bar ends from them and rear axle sliders. i was very surprised at the quality. i figured for the price they would be garbage but that was not the case. i would say go for it and pick up some bar ends too.
good luck

Not sure about that shifter. I had snapped mine off and I ended up putting a carrage bolt in its place with 2 lock nuts holding it to the main piece. Looks almost like stock. Only cost under 2 dollars at home depot.

is that for a TL? if it is it wont work on a newer sv. the pivot hole is to big. im sure you could have a bushing made to make it work tho....
+1 - I ordered one last year. The pivot was too big for my 05 Naked. I sent it back (good customer service), and did the carriage bolt thing.

FWIW- I just got their folding Busa shifter (the one that is supposed to work). It looked like it would work, but the threads on the shifter were backwards. I ended up using a tap and die and re-threading it. It was useless until I rethreaded it. It is on the bike now and seems to work fine. i would not buy from them again though...pretty slow on the email replies. If you buy it please post about it. Folks are always looking for a good shifter on the cheap.
