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 floorboad
SAVE TIME AND MONEY
eliminate primary and transmission work
THE PRIMARY DRIVE, if it's not broke why mess with it?
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 stainless steel Better Lever.
THE TRANSMISSION SHAFT. Leave it alone and you'll be ok.
I was going to just install a new stock lever when my mechanic friends warned me that a new lever only repair is temporary. A proper repair with stock parts requires replacing both the lever and transmission shift shaft. Considering the cost of the "proper repair" I thought there has to be a better way.. The Better Lever is DESIGNED TO GRIP YOUR WORN SHAFT.
I had my idea and luckily found the right machine shop, owned and operated by a mechanical engineer. He's 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.

.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
