Shift lever for the Suzuki V-Strom DL1000.

This shift lever replaces the stock shift lever and shift linkage on the DL1000 with a special folding tip lever that folds in when hit by a solid object, or in a fall, thus protecting your gearbox.

Easy to install. Just remove your stock shifter, and the existing shift linkage then replace with this simple shifter.

I actually put this on my Vstrom DL650. It fits the gear shaft, but you do end up with a reverse shift pattern (one up, 5 down). So not designed for the 650, but works (I suppose most folks wouldn't be aware that the shift pattern is different on the 1000 and the 650) I really like the quality and construction of the part - top notch. Very well made and tucks into the motor much more closely than the stock shifter. And with the direct mount, eliminates a lot of linkage parts that could potentially fail on a long trip (although I don't think it's a regular issue with the Wee). Only downside (and true for a lot of the very nice touratech parts) is that it isn't exactly low cost. But for the quality, it's reasonable. Other options were cheaper, but.. well... simply cheaper quality parts. You get what you pay for. And a big thumbs up to the staff in the Seattle office - I live in the area and wasn't sure about the fit of the shifter (I knew it'd be a reverse shift pattern, which was fine by me). They had no problem with me taking the shifter outside of the store and see if the fit looked ok, and also said if it didn't fit on install that I could return it. Very nice of them to let me do that.

By on
