BETTER LEVER, A TRANSMISSION SHIFT LEVER
FOR H-D BIG TWIN EVO AND TWIN CAM BIKES
I was in 5th gear and across town when my footlever fell onto the floorboard
BETTER LEVER'S TWO PIECE STAINLESS STEEL DESIGN GRIPS TIGHT AND ELIMINATES PRIMARY AND TRANSMISSION WORK
THE PRIMARY DRIVE....REMOVE OR NOT?
On 5 SPEEDS the PRIMARY CASE is too close to the transmission's shifter shaft to allow the worn out shift lever to be removed. The HOW-TO-VIDEOS show you how to cut the old lever off and install the Better Lever without removing the primary drive.
6 SPEED BIKES HAVE A RECESSED AREA on the inside primairy case that eliminates the primary work. Take the tightening bolt out and slide the worn out pot metal lever off the shaft and double bolt on a Better Lever.
THE TRANSMISSION SHAFT.....REPLACE OR NOT?
A repair using stock parts requires a new transmission shaft. When my lever gave out my mechanic friends told me that a stock lever only repair is temporary. They call it "new on old". I hear from a lot of riders who were advised the half-way (and half-cost) repair. They paid several hundred dollars to have a new lever installed on their existing shaft and then sent down the road, only to have it soon get loose again. The worn shaft is not a problem for the Better Lever.
With the Better Lever you DO NOT have
to replace your transmission shaft.
THE BETTER LEVER IS DESIGNED TO GRIP
YOUR WORN TRANSMISSION SHAFT
THE STORY....I'm in 5th gear and across town when my footlever falls onto the floorboard. For my 5-speed Road King that means primary and transmission work. BIG MONEY REPAIR.....
I knew there had to be a better way.
I had my idea and found a machine shop owned by a mechanical engineer, a great guy and a rider himself. He deserves the credit for making the Better Lever work so well.
His shop's work is like art.
Better Levers are MADE IN AMERICA and sold to riders world wide.
Better Levers are made of STAINLESS STEEL and CNC machined. The splines are CNC as well using an EDM to cut them. The levers' two parts are numbered and matched together after the tumbling process.
The Better Lever is delivered to you with a machined finish. THE LEVERS SHOWN IN THE PAGE HEADINGS HAVE BEEN POLISHED ON A BENCH WHEEL.
The Better Lever is $225 and shipping to US is $5.80 by USPS Priority Mail. For Canada and Mexico shipping and currency change charges are $26.95, $30.95 to all other countries.

Part showed up last week, I had it installed in less than an hour and was back on the road. Thanks a bunch!! Nice part and easy to install. Thank you, Chris K.
I received the betterlever yesterday, and installed it in about 10 minutes on my 6 speed Street Glide. I could not be happier with it. Thank You, B.H.
.am still riding it but i have to readjust the arm and torque it back down every other day,,,,now it's to the point where I've got to replace it.......I received the lever and installed it, and it works perfect. Feels like new. I can ride again! Thanks, B.C.
Thanks again for all your help, you have one hell of a project it works great We will spread the word. C. and R.
Put lever on and I:m back an RUNNING... thank-you. S.O.
It was in 30 minutes after I got home. I'm looking forward to no more hassle from that area.
P.S. UNRELATED BUT POTENTIALLY COSTLY......... For TWIN CAM owners, check your cam chain tensioners' pads for wear and replace when needed. If the pads break up they will clog up oil flow and lead to major engine failure. The pads are a maintenance item that require replacement.
Thanks and enjoy the ride, Conrad Buehler
