Terrible! $40 for junk

Couldnt get the bolt started to tighten shifter to shaft without cross threading the bolt, save your money and get a msr shifter thats way cheaper and its built better! IMS is an overpriced joke

IMS Shift Lever

The lever appears to be built very well. Only gripe I have is that when i put the lever on the KDX, the toe end of the lever was sitting way to far out (away from the engine) so I had to remove it, put it in a vise and bend it inwards about 3/8" to 1/2". This caused a few hairline cracks to appear in the paint, so I assume the thing may rust (in the future) at these locations.

Good price

this is a nicely priced shift lever and is good for your easy going trail rider, it is solid and has good feel.

The IMS shift lever is solid. My only complaint is that I had to grind some material off the bottom edge to clear my frame when downshifting

IMS Shifter lever

Installed new IMS shifter lever on my son's CR125. Nice tight fit, high quality construction, haven't got a chance to try it out yet.

Great aftermarket option.

Love this lever. Its steel vs the stock aluminum so in the event of a hard crash it bends instead of snapping off. Just bend it back and keep riding!

Great hard shift lever.

The shift lever was easy enough to install,it was a little short for me because I have such large feet but I got used to it eventually. Good price,really hard,good for desert riding.

IMS Diet

I was disappointed with the purchase of the IMS shift lever. While it fit ok, and has a nice rubber tip, it weighs twice as much as the stock shift lever weighs, and while I know a few extra ounces of weight won't even be noticed, still I'd like it to weight less.

Folding lever shifter at a great price

Sturdy unit, beefier than OEM at half the cost.


This shift lever is much heavier than the last one that was on the bike. Don't have to worry about bending this one. Fit was great.

It had a very very tight fit( my guess because of the paint in the threads) but once i got it on it was very easy to crank tight. It came loose after one ride, not very much but enough where it needed another crank to tighten it. (again i think because of the paint in the threads) but once i tightened it again it has stayed tight ever since

Purchased 2 of these and the first one was fine. The spring on the second one broke within a few days of receiving it.

Horrible Quality

Once i got the correct position on the lever I began to tighten the bolt and it snapped almost immediately. The bolt was no where near being tight enough to hold the lever up to support shifts, i had to actually pry the product off just so i could throw it away, hopefully it didn't damage the teeth on the shaft...

Q: Could this shift lever fix my issue?
1 year 5 months ago
My problem with my 01 Honda cr125r is that the stock shift lever is very loose. I tried tightening the bolt underneath and it fixed it temporarily for only 2 minutes after I changed gears multiple times. after looking at it more it looks like the splines aren't threaded to the shift lever anymore. Tried finding splines on here but no luck. Could the problem just be the shift lever itself?
MotoSport Staff Expert

A: Its hard to say for sure without being able to see the splines on the shifter and the inside of the shifter itself. The shaft is steel and the shifter is aluminum so generally the softer, weaker aluminum will wear out or damage before the steel shaft. I would pull the shift lever off the shaft and inspect the shaft splines for damage or wear. You likely just need a new shift lever.

Q: Shift Lever Removal?
2 years 5 months ago
I bought one of these shifter for my son's crf100f and I can't seem to remove the old one from the bike. I have removed the bolt but, cant get the shifter off the spline. Can anyone help me with this? I have searched the internet far and wide with no success. All I can find is how to remove the shifter spindle but, I would still need to remove the shift lever before I could even perform that step if necessary. any help is much appreciated.
MotoSport Staff Expert

A: Once the bolt is removed the shift lever will usually slide on and off the shaft easily. You can try prying open the clamping area of the shifter but you really shouldn't have to. I have seen before where the splines on the shaft had been damaged so instead of replacing the shaft they tack welded the shifter to the shaft (not a good idea).

A: If you profile your bike correctly when placing the order, you will get the correct shifter specific for your bike. It will have the correct bends in it to clear your crankcase. This is not a generic shifter and will require you in your case, to profile your bike as a 2001 YZ125 in order for you to receive the correct shifter.
