I have a size 7 foot and when my foot is on the peg my toes do not even touch the shifter.
I went and checked my BMW and the Triumph T100 shifter is a full 1 inch longer !

I don't want to change my shifter to an aftermarket one or re-drill it.
Does Triumph make a shorter shifter for my T100 or is there another Triumph model that would fit?

I got the cheap eBay shifter. It is a bit longer but I have no trouble with my size 9 (US) boot. I like the folding tip and the black matches other blacked out parts of my bike. The splines are a bit tight but not a problem.

Alternative Shift lever for 1996 Adventurer?

Hey everyone. New owner of a 1996 Triumph Adventurer and have a problem I need to address.

My buddy jumped on my bike and tried to kick start it using the shift lever = Thanks dude.

This is what resulted.

He broke the tip of the spindle off.

The bike still shifts just fine so I don't want to have to replace the whole shaft if possible.

Shifts fine with one caveat. The problem I am having is there is not enough bite for the old, and somewhat worn out lever to stay attached.

The question I have is are there other levers that have a more narrow "bite Down" area that would fit my 1996 Adventurer and stay attached when placed closer to the transmission housing.

Didn't pay a whole lot for the bike so I don't want to drop a whole lot of cash, just a fix that will have me riding in the spring. and apologies to all the purists out there I don't care about aesthetics, just functionality (for now.)

Are there other fixes for this problem? I would think welding the piece would be problematic due to heating up the other components. Perhaps bore a hole to reattach the piece?

Thanks everyone.

If you scroll back to Dani's post, that's the shifter I used. It was pretty tight (a bit smaller than stock), and I would need a spreader to get it off. It may work for you, I'm not familiar with Adventurers. But it was also only $12. May be worth the experiment. If it were me, I might try some loctite or JB Weld or something before I bored a hole. Although either of those options would require a new shaft if they didn't work.

Thanks for the response.

I have actually tried JB weld but when I try to put the lever back on it breaks the tip off again. Going to try a couple more times with the JB weld though.. Would love that to work.

I am going to do some more research, I think a new lever with new grooves will work for me though. There is about an inch or so of exposed spindle with good grooves and clearance from the housing shouldn't be a problem with a just a little outward bend in the lever.

I'm glad this post has been revisited as I would also like to find a nice shift and brake lever without having to replace the entire rearsets. I like the stock position of my pegs on my '12 Bonneville mag wheel.

There is a new option albeit a costly one:

Having used Sato components in the past, I can assure you, you get what you pay for. This shift lever provides a few options not found in lower cost levers such as peg distance and lever angle. I've contacted Sato to see if they plan on making a similar brake lever available to match.
