Quick update - got the new tip. It came with all new hardware, including two circlips. They are tiny and there's a good chance that one will take a leap across the shop...what foresight!

I like these guys. Will update when I get it on there, busy with work and watching the GP this weekend...go Dovi!

Okay, pix below. I also bought the matching short link that goes on the end of the shift shaft. The 'ear' on the shift lever is angled back a bit, so I lost a few threads of engagement on the adjuster; there are still plenty but I will loctite this once I'm happy with the setting.

There is a very thin o-ring on each side of the bushing, be careful that you don't pinch one when reassembling...

Measuring from the back of the tip to the back of the footpeg, I got 6-1/2 inches on the stock lever. That was a bit long; this is better. I wear a size 10 US boot, 44 EU. The wifey's SV measures 5-1/2", and I can handle that if not comfortably.

Next will be a brake pedal...that will be tougher. I will buy one to look at, maybe even try a simple mod I'm thinking of. But they don't have one that fits, and can't justify the costs of tooling up a few for us. Their main market is dirt/MX bikes; I got the impression that they are losing money on their BMW/Ducati stuff.

I would not hold my breath waiting for the brake pedal, but the shifter works just fine. Took the bike out yesterday after adjusting the lever down a half turn. I was wearing my track-spec Sidis, they are actually size 43. After the first few miles I never thought about the shifter again. Seems pretty good to me!

PS Hi Nate!

quick update

Have the brake pedal on order. Unfortunately it won't accommodate the platform-type tips, as the mounting is completely different. I went with rubber, at least it matches the other side. And it folds.

I intend to make a new rear arm. If the rest of the lever fits we should be in business. Will take a week or two. The guys at HDmoto seem quite happy for a chance to move these 'obsolete' parts!

bad news

The pedal arrived late yesterday, so I pulled the stock brake pedal to compare. No way will this thing fit. The 821 has the return spring wrapped around the pivot boss; apparently the 796 has this on the inboard side of the mounting bracket. Even if I got the 796 parts I don't think that there is a boss on the inboard side to keep the spring centered, or even room for the parts.

I'm leaning toward buying one of their platform tips and welding a mount for it to the stock pedal. My welder could do this, even make it stronger than stock. They mount with two bolts, from the top. A simple job, actually. Hammerhead's titanium tip would sure look good on there, and the size and shape should protect it from impacts. They make a rotating one, too. See them here:

Tom have you compared the Multistrada levers to ours?

If you mean the ones that HDmoto sells, they only have two versions - this one and another that is splined for a rotating shaft. Again, our market is too small for them to make new ones for every new model. They don't have their own machine shop, the levers are made out of state.

I've ordered a TI tip, complete with TI bolts. Thinking of adding the 'snake,' but I am not doing any serious offroading on this bike. And I am loathe to modify any part that came on my bike, so I am ordering a new lever to hack up.

BTW it was tough getting the lever back on, there is just no room and the spring makes it harder. I ended up removing the pin that hoids the pushrod, which allows you to find the invisible hole that the end of the spring fits into. Then I tightened the pivot bolt, and held the spring up and out of the way with a hook tool while I reinstalled the pin. Not much clearance for my big hands, but I got it done. Final tightening required two "wobble drive" extensions and a 5mm allen socket.

PPS - those o-rings turned out to be standard, not metric! 7/16" ID x 9/16" OD. Go figure.

Whoops! I had not seen this one. I'll bet it will fit right on, once I remove the old tip. It's for a Honda CRF450, and even pivots. I'll follow up on Monday.
