I got my new gear shift foot lever in the mail today. I worked 8 hours right after getting it.
The old one is bent up from being dropped. And it has been welded, from what I think is, a long time ago. It has been a constant thorn in my side to upshift gears.
If it works, it will save me from buying a new set of shoes. Since the tops of most of some of my shoes have been worn out, due to the sharp edge of the current gear shift lever.
Anyway, I wanted to share some good news. With anyone available. I may take pictures in the morning when I put it on. I will post them on here, if I do.
Hoping everyone is having a blessed day, as I am.
New parts are always a great motivation. Sounds like you're having a blast!

Does anyone know of the best puller to buy to get my gear shift selector lever off my bike?
I've sprayed WD-40 on it. And rocked it back and forth and it still won't come off.
Splay the clamp open by drifting a straight-slot screwdriver into the cut.....
You did remove the pinch bolt...Right?

Can you post some pictures?
We might be able to help you a little better.
Hope all goes well. Every time I touch mine seems things get worse on them.

I think I need a shaft puller to get it off the shaft. Or some device like that.
It seems to be frozen. I can wiggle it and it does wiggle a little bit but it still will not come off.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
This is where I'm at now. After waiting a good half-hour it is halfway off. I sprayed it with WD-40 again and assume I need to wait longer. Because now it is half way off.
Well I got it off. But now the new one does not work. Because the lever will hit the crankcase. It needs bent out some. Any suggestions on how to bend it out?
Could I heat the shift lever up, with a map gas torch, and bend it when it's almost red hot? Would this ruin the spines?
