Shaft Size

Does anyone know if the shifter shaft is a universal size?

I'm going to add a rear set and I want to use a Honda shift lever on my triumph? It's actually a 441 motor on a Triumph fame. It's my cafe racer project.

Will any other manufacturer shift lever fit on my old BSA motor?

Any idea?

Do you mean you're going to reverse the gear change like in the old days?
Or add a linkage with rose joints?

I looked at gear levers on eBay and various spline sizes come up

Hi Norcoastal, I haven't seen any Honda levers that would fit a 441 spline. Seems every manufacture has their own idea of size & spline. Maybe another Brit bike lever might fit but would that help you?

I know some Hondas have the lever with clevis pins & all from factory. As I recall my CB350 had that.

Could you cut, grind, drill a 441 type lever to fit a Honda clevis?

That's what I thought- mount a cut bsa lever vertically and connect to off the shelf rearsets?

Barleycorn engineering might be able to help - or unity equipe

Yeah, thanks everyone. I'm going to have to fabricate something. That's ok, that's what this is all about!
