    What aftermarket shift levers fit?

    Some of you already have protective riding boots and others here are just getting them. That's me. Just got a nice pair of Fly Maverick boots that go up to just below my knees. They fit and feel good and will help when those branches jump up and smack my legs.

    The boots are stiff and will take a lot of time to brake them in but now I can't catch under the shift lever because the boots just don't go there. I am not sure if I can pull the lever off and reposition it on the shaft a few teeth up or if it has a set notch that it must line up with. I also think a longer lever would be a much better option and one I might be able to bend a little to fit my needs. Lots of companies make aftermarket shift levers but I can't find what ones fit the TW.

    You guys who ride with protective boots know exactly what I am dealing with so please chime in and make some recommendations.

    Thanks

    20140506_142600.jpg20140506_142425.jpgJust got this one for my 87. Looks about an inch longer as you can see. I think it is going to work well with my boots. $23.35 shipped on ebay.

    The shaft has a cutout for the pinch bolt all the way around in the middle, so the lever can be positioned anywhere it will not hit a part of the bike when actuated. I'm a size 11 and never felt like I needed a longer lever after adjusting it up one notch. Now, one with a hinged end, that's something else again. I've bent mine but not too badly and just bent it back....that was 6,000 miles ago. I have a stock replacement lever in my kit, but the way I ride it may never be needed.

    outlaw racing yz250f lever is what I have with my size 11 mavericks. It works great for me. They are available with colored tips (that's what sold me on it).

    I bought a pair atv maverick atv boots and after a few rides with my yz shifter could not deal with it. I tried wearing them for a few hours, squatting, extending, standing it hot water. I finally gave up and sold them. I just couldn't deal with the stiffness. It was like trying to walk in snowboarding boots. So I bought a new pair of Alpinestars tech 7's and am super happy with them. Expensive but worth it... Out of the box they are more flexible than the mavericks after about 12 hours of break in. And they keep getting better! I can actually walk down a set of steps without only using my heels (you guys with the mavericks know what i'm talking about).

    I am with you PSC, don't think the boots will be staying here after the ride tonight. I honestly believe that for my riding style I will be better off with the shin and knee guards and just wearing my Rocky boots. I run my bike in to back woods fishing holes and then would have to switch boots on the stream. These Fly Mavericks are a very nice and comfortable boot with great protection but I don't think they are right for casual TW riding. Better suited for down and dirty MX riding. I definitely need shin protectors because all those fallen branches love jumping up and smacking my legs.

    These are what I wear and think they are a perfect dual use boot. ROCKY® Prowler 16'' Non-Insulated Waterproof Snake Side-Zip Hunting Boots for Men. Bass pro shops and they are even on sale right now. Let me know what you think. I dont even feel small sticks or limbs wearing these.

    I looked at some of your photos your type of riding a good hiking boot might work for you. I ride in the harsh AZ desert it will kill you if you let it!

    Fly Maverick MX, up to the knee. Nothing is wrong with the boots other than them being stiff and not very good for walking once I get off the bike to fish. I would think anyone doing serious hard riding would love the protection they afford but they are not for a casual rider such as me doing dual sport, ride in to fish type activities. I ordered a pair of Fox Racing Titanium 2014 Knee/Shin protectors that will work better with my Rocky boots and can pop off when it is time to walk the stream and fish.



    Anyone who needs a size 9 in near perfect, lightly used condition drop me a PM before I return them to my pal.
