I installed The SW Motech unit.  Expensive, but looks cool if you actually notice these things.

I did, as mentioned above, have to rotate the lever up one spline on the shaft to get it  to work properly.

Very pleased with it.

I just installed this lever From touratech and I am pleased with my purchase. The splines line up and there is more than enough room from any obstruction.

Now that I have some proper Adventure boots coming my way, I really need this....thanks for the link!
Touratech called me after I placed my order to alert me it may not fit my bike. I told them it's already been done but thank you for your concern. ;-)

Great news Fred.

I have been enjoying mine tremdously. It took a few tweaks by rotating one spline but I found the sweet spot.

Very comfortable up or downshifting.

As recommended elsewhere on this forum I ordered one of these:

Very happy with it  :002: :152:

If it’s the same one I tried to get (link didn’t work for me) they won’t ship to the US  :>(
