I am having trouble finding a gear shifter for a Hayabusa that attaches to the motor, dose any one have a link or a size, all of the motorcycle dealers in my area don't know.

thanks

What engine do you have? Do you need to modify the shifter? Have you tried E-bay?

Welcome to the site edride.

You have the right idea with this place - ask questions! (just give us enough info... cough, cough) * [smilie=alright.gif] * *[smilie=boogie.gif]

Okay, since I'm in one of my "smartasser" modes I'm gonna ask:
What does edride?
or should that be a fill in the blank:

There are a lot of smartasses on this forum, though some aren't nearly as smart as they like to think they are - I'm not referring to either of the above I hasten to add. *[smilie=biggrin.gif]

If your Busa engine didn't come with its gear changer, you're bound to be able to pick one up at a wrecker's yard a lot cheaper than from a Suzuki dealer. You'll probably find that one of the cheap aftermarket ones will fit OK too. Many models across different manufacturers share the same spline BTW.

All you need is the splined clamp part of the lever, then you simply weld your own set-up onto it.

I don't have one either. *I figured I would try to make my own. *Take a little *chunk of aluminum, drill a hole, and cut a slot, ... put it on and tighten enough to mark it and then sit down with a little angle file and file away while watching the boob tube.

We can pick up the cheap import gear levers here for around $10 so that's about 7.60 of your beer tokens. Is it really worh sitting and filing one?

You could of course just drill a pilot hole in your bit of aluminium and then hammer it onto the gear shaft thereby broaching the splines into the aluminium - BTDT with steering wheel flanges.

trying do attach a pic but having trouble.
in the window below the one you type into, you'll notice it says "Add an Attachment"

Follow the prompts in the windows below.
Browse for your picture on your computer, using, obviously the browse button, once you find what you want you can make a comment in the window under that. *Then hit the "Add Attachment" button. *It'll upload your pic and open up another add attachment window set.

Once you hit submit, it'll stick it on the board now known as minibuggy.net...

any cycle shop should have a but load of emgo shift levers to choose from.. usually about 8 or 10 bucks. Just measure your shaft diameter and depth (keep jokes to your selves) count your splines. does it use a set screw or a nut on the end to keep it in place.

I'm probably saying something you already know.

The Hayabusa uses a rod to rotate the shifter mounted to the spline. Typical rear-set sport bike stuff. A link showing the entire system is in this response. Only 30 bux.

All you need is the piece that goes on the transmission shift shaft. Use a .25 inch clevis and morse cable instead of the rod. Smaller clevis's seem to break for some of us.

Or, remove the rod end from the gear shaft lever and replace it for one from the same place you get your shifter cable from! http://www.controlcables.com/catalog/175-403-0035TQ.jpg

Mind you, with such a short throw, it will be trickier to get the gear stick in the cockpit spot on.

mcmaster has parts to build the shifter pretty easily and cheap (cables/cable ends/even a shifter that can be cut down or left at the 15" height)
