I bought this to replace a stripped aftermarket shifter I had recently purchased. This shifter is solid! The other shifter I purchased was much lighter which translated to a stripped out part in a short amount of time. In the future I will only purchase MSR aluminum shifters for all of my bikes (when/if needed). Buy with confidence.

It's basically just a piece of metal. The only thing that separates this lever from another that might be a bit cheaper is that the tip on this lever can fold backwards so it should hold up better to crashing.
the MSR Aluminum Shift Lever looks good stripped out quickly. I purchased a steel one for my bike. The teeth stripped out and I was stuck in 5th gear.
Got this lever for a 2002 KTM 250SX. It was half the price of the OEM lever, and Hammerhead doesn't go back that far. Looks and feels just like the stocker, but a bit shinier and supposed to be stronger. Fits and works perfectly.
Bought for a customers kids bike and they liked it.
Umm, what I said above - good deal!
I ordered this for a klx110, description said it was the same length as stock but its actually 1" longer, would be great if I had the stock foot pegs but I have the straight ones so its a little bit of a reach to shift, but with the folding tip I don't have to worry about it digging into the ground and bending like the stock one
This is the 3rd one i have had on three different bikes. Great quality,Greta price.
fitment is good. the metal is soft, you will have to locktite the bolt in for our 2006 kx100 otherwise after an hour of riding it comes loose
Super strong. works great
The MSR shift lever installed on my 2002 Honda CR250R with no problem. Shifting with it is same as stock. Only minor concern is that it comes very close to the engine case and could hit if not installed at very end of shaft.
Use to use it..... Til i laid the bike down on the left side. The 3 hours it took me to get that stupid thing unwrapped from my foot peg was not worth the money i spent on it. Wont buy again. Get a Hammerhead instead.
fit perfect no problems
good shifter great price have had 3 on different bikes no color options just good solid part.
I ordered 2 msr shift levers, the one for my doughters xr80 works great, the one for my kdx200 horable fit had to bend to get it to clear the case.
Looks great and is very sturdy,just be sure to add some blue lock tight to the bolt threads.
Easy to install, very cheap in cost so if it breaks its affordable. But i wouldn't worry about breaking it too much because i am still on the same one i got 1 year ago...and i am one of those people that hits the shifter down an extra 5 times just to make sure its in gear. And my shifter still looks about the same from when i got it. I love this shifter and would by a another one. That is, if the one i have ever gives out.
you cant really find one of these that are bad but this on is amazing. i guess its just how long you want it to be its short but that's how i like it and there not allot of free-play so its right on every time.
the pivit end of the shifter is nice and tight not sloppy like some of the others made
I think this is my third lever as well. they all strip out. I thought it was my shift shaft causing issues, then thought I wasn't tightening the lever enough, but now...after this and seeing other reviews, STEER CLEAR of this. Aluminum on such a high demand part of the bike is not a good idea.
