It's a lever, that's all there is to it.

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.

MSR Aluminum Shift Lever

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.

Better than stock

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.

Good shift lever

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

Great Shifter

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

Perfect fit

Super strong. works great

Shift lever fits fine

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.

I used this once upon a time.

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.

Bad fit

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.

Nice looking lever!

Looks great and is very sturdy,just be sure to add some blue lock tight to the bolt threads.

Cheap and simple

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.

Best purchase ever

the pivit end of the shifter is nice and tight not sloppy like some of the others made

Stripped Teeth

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.

Do not buy.

I have bought not 1 not 2 but 3 of these msr shifters. I thought it was my bike that was stripped out but come to find out after two rides these shifters strip out. GO with the sunline products

Q: Will this shifter be longer than my stock shifter in a 1996 cr125?
Over 3 years ago
I have a 96 cr125 and i hve trouble with getting my boots under to shift so i was wondering of this shifter will be more extended out

A: These will come the same length as the OEM shifter for each model. Sometimes (depending on the model) you can turn the shifter up a few degrees when installing onto the splines of the shift shaft so it sits up higher to make it easier to reach underneath.

A: prob not any longer the tip might be a little bit bigger than stock
1 month 17 days ago Location: SE Wisco
A: Probably not, I swapped this lever for the stock lever on a 2003 XR100, it didn't seem to be any longer. You could try removing your stock lever and rotating it up a few of the teeth where the lever mounts onto the shaft, although that might make downshifting slightly more cumbersome.
Q: How does the lever stay on? Does it have a screw cause in the pic there in none.?

A: The one shown is just a general product picture so it may vary depending on what bike you have. It bolts on the same as stock, so however your stock one is, this one will bolt up the same way.
Over 6 years ago Location: Sunbury, PA
A: yes it does come with a screw that holds it on. i recommend you buy the steel shifter and not the aluminum. i had bought the aluminum shifter and after 10 minutes of riding it striped out and i couldnt shift gears.

A: the little bolt thru the bottom of the lever locks in a grove on the shift shaft on the bike and some bikes have a different style than shown but the one in the pic is the norm.
2 years 11 months ago
A: Yes, there is a screw, just like the stock lever.
1 month 17 days ago Location: SE Wisco
A: The teeth grab onto the shaft that should still be on the bike when you take off the old lever, then you tighten the screw that's on the bottom, I want to say it's either a 6mm or 8mm hex head screw.
