    I'm reading that the IMS shifter lever for the YZ250 is the way to go to upgrade the TW (correct me if I'm wrong). Problem is the IMS site shows at least 5 different models for the YZ250. Which part number should I be looking for, or is there a different option I should consider?

    I bought a Sunline Honda CR shifter. The guys at the local moto shop said Honda and Yamahas tend to have the same diameter and thread on the shifting rod (can't think of the correct word).

    You wouldn't happen to have an exact part number for that CR shifter would you?

    I'm leaning towards IMS 317314 after reading this thread: https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...h__1#entry9716



    The IMS site lists it as the "80-83 Yamaha YZ250 Flightline Shift Lever". I can get it on eBay for $29.95 shipped.

    Like I said, I found mine in the "close out" box.



    It has a much longer throw/reach. I wear the 50/50 boots and it is much easier and much more confortable shifting with the sunline. Too each their own as long as we can all be happy on our TDubs.

    I have this shifter, It's fits fine and works great.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!
