    Shifter Question

    2000 TW does anyone know of any other shifters that would work on these bikes? Would like something a little longer and maybe a little more stronger/more substantial. Also, can anyone suggest the best set of sprockets, o-ring chain you've found? The stock chain is pitiful and I need to replace soon.

    The stock Yamaha sprockets are good quality as are the ones I got after market from JT. The stock chain is cheap junk. I just put DID X ring chains on both TWs and I think these will be the last chains I ever have to buy. Others have found much cheaper O ring chains and seem to be happy with them to. I would not even bother replacing a standard roller chain with another roller chain.

    My stock shift lever was ok until I changed to wider foot pegs that I love. I also tried a nice pair of MX boots and could not even shift with them on. When I do change the shifter I will stick with steel just so I can bend it back if it gets bent.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    I've given some thought to a double action pedal-- a rocker type-- because it would be more precise with the ability to back-check. But it is all 'grown shut' behind the shaft. Has anyone else stewed over this? Dell
