Shift lever

I have been riding my 2011 Fe 570 for about 2 months now and have managed to adjust or replace most of the things that were not quite right for me. One thing I haven't been able to adjust or replace is the gear shift lever. It is too short for my size 12 MX boots and I have to lift my foot off the peg to down shift. Does anyone know who make an aftermarket shift lever for our bikes? I checked Hammerhead but they don't list anything specifically for the Bergs and I can't seem to cross reference any part numbers to see if something off one of the KTM's will fit.

Anyone got any suggestions or solutions?

Re: Shift lever

Re: Shift lever

Be careful if you raise the shift lever on the spline. If you go too far you will drive the shift lever into the chain when you up-shift.

Re: Shift lever

The shifter from the new style Berg engine is the same as the KTM 2 stroke big bike shifters. Anything that fits a 250/300 KTM will fit the Berg. I have a shifter from a 250 2-stroke KTM on my bike. If you go to KTM-Parts.com and check the part number for the stock Berg shifter it is the same as the 2 stroke KTM's.

Re: Shift lever

Thanks for the input. I figured one of the KTM bikes used the same shifter.

I don't think raising the shifter 1 spline would help me as I don't seem to have the dexterity to bend "up" high enough to shift. I actually tried to go down 1 spline but it hits the frame trying to down shift.

I am going to look at a larger shifter for the KTM mentioned by CrazyTed. I think that will solve my problem.

Re: Shift lever

if you can't find one a good alloy welder should be able to customize the current lever, cut and shut
