I feel your pain on the tank damage.

And I can almost taste the adrenalin from when that barbed wire came into your view.

You don't know whether it's best to down shift and pull the front wheel or hit the deck.

Fortunately I've survived using both methods.

Glad you have as well.

Thanks for the consideration Snglsmkr.


So i thought i would start switching over my foot controls to the proper sides. I ran into this







Anyone know if there is a right and left side shift arm? Did my dad tweak this one? Is there an aftermarket one available with a hinged end?

Thanks
Jonathan

My guess is that lever has been tweaked . If it was a proper right side gear lever ,
the bolt head would be on the underside .
I know some Kawasaki's of that vintage , have alternate parts listed in their Manual ,
for reversal of gear levers, and brake levers .
I've never seen any such listings in Yamaha Parts Manuals .

So you are saying bolt is suposed to be on the bottom of the handle when installed on the left side of the bike?

Thanks

The bolt head is normally on the underside of the lever , whichever
side it is mounted . The two levers , if a OEM item , may not be mirror images
of one another , due to having to clear different components .
That is why you have an odd bend on yours , now that it's back on the left .
As I said before , I've never seen any information in Parts Manuals ,
that Yamaha had a part option , but it may have come out in a Service Bulletin .
Perhaps some of our older members may be able to enlighten us there .

It might just be an AT1 shift lever your Dad used?

Someone posted using an aftermarket folding tip lever from an XR250... no year mentioned but had to be pretty modern as they don't list them for the old bikes anymore.

They used to make "weld on" folding tips you would add to the stock lever. Or maybe something from a 1970's Yamaha IT or MX bike would work if long enough.

Upon further inspection (cleaning), i found some vice jaw marks which lead me to belive my dad bent this shifter. Can some one with an unbent one take a few pics so i know how its supposed to be shaped?

Thanks

Here is a pic of a stock DT1-C shift lever below yours for comparison. Hope it helps.

Really enjoying this thread and how well the bike turned out.
