I think I put a YZ80 lever on mine from MSR. It's been a while, thought it was in my signature?

Here's the shift lever thread from the old forum:



http://tw200forum.com/forums/57941/ShowPost.aspx



Ater a quick search on eBay, it appears the YZ 250 shifters are about half the price of the IMS shifter.

This is the one I bought (about 4 years ago)







It's for a TTR 125.



The IMS part # is 317314.



I purchased it here (about half way down the page):

It was about $30. There may be other, less expensive choices.

I have a dumb question. What is the advantage of a folding shift lever?

... What is the advantage of a folding shift lever?
If you hit a rock or some other obstacle with the shift lever, it is less likely to bend or snap off, and leave you "shiftless"... ;-)



I bent my stock shift lever several times before I decided to replace it.



I guess it depends on the type of riding you do as to how likely you are to damage the lever.

Ah ha, that makes sense. I've bent both shift and brake foot levers and bent them back (not in the original placement) from various rock encounters. Wondered how many times bending them, and bending them back it would take before they break. Folding lever may very well help in that regard.



Side note: broke my foot a few years back hitting a rock coming up out of a creek bed. Interesting thing was the brake lever wasn't even bent...just my foot.




Thanks for the help.

Less expensive is just another word for inferior. Think Chinese.
