I have a 2006 TW...I just got some boots with a much thicker sole so my short inseam will reach the ground easier. However,

I need to have the shifter an inch or two longer so that my thicker soled boots will fit under and over for shifting.

any one have any ideas as to what would work in that regards?



thanks

Look for a shifter for a YZ-125/250. I've read that the year ranges are 2005-2008 or 1996-2009. I have an Emgo brand aluminum shifter for a 2005 YZ-125/250 and it fits great. You'll love the extra length.

Anybody running a longer shifter with a TCI skid plate? Here's a picture of DonBenito's bike and it looks like it could be close. The camera angle could make it look closer than it is as well. I understand the YZ250 shifters bend out away from the bike more so it may be a non issue but I thought I'd try to verify before ordering one.







TIA

Mine is an Emgo brand. The shifter is longer, but it does kick out more (to the left). No clearance issues. I love it. Highly recommended.

Does anyone know why the 80-97 yz250 shifter won't fit? Its on Amazon for $15 but I need some length for my steel toes to and from work.

I ordered mine up at cyclegear for $10. If you go that route dont let them charge you the three bucks for shipping. I never charge anyone for it!

anyone had problems with the aluminum shifter vs steel? i know i have bent my stock one and wondered if the aluminum would shatter or break, rather than bend.

I'm using the Moose Racing shifter part no 1602-0121.It is steel and longer than the sock shifter.Works great with the wider footpegs.

The aluminum ones have the folding tip so when you hit brush or the bike falls over, it is supposed to break away and spring back. I tried to bend my MSR lever so the tip was parallel to my foot peg and it was a no go. The thing is springy. It's also very lightweight, probably half the weight of the stock steel shifter.

Yeah, that should be it.



Some other people are using one from Moose Racing (also for the YZ250) and I think it runs 18 bucks (plus shipping maybe.)



The factory shifter (the metal arm and the rubber tube thingy) from the dealership costs about 20 dollars (full retail price) FYI.
