Question xt 600 gear change pedal/lever

i want to change the standard steel gear change lever to an alloy one preferably with the fold up tip, i've done a search on here but can't find anything.

has anybody found an aftermarket or anything off another bike that will fit ?

cheers

Find a friend, whos got a friend, and let them weld one together for you. It's a pretty simple thing.

Pretty sure it's an 02 YZ250 one.It's a cheap Emgo branded one,not sure if you have those over there.As long as it has a 12mm hole for the shift shaft,it'll work.
I've added a pic of the spare one I have,as my bike is in being "fixed".

Hmm thats a good point.
I have a 1VJ,so I'd imagine all electric start XTs have a wider case for the starter gear etc.
It has about 20-25mm clearance off the case from memory - Can't go measure as I don't have my bike here,but I'm sure thats about right.That one in the pic had been bent slightly inwards due to a few offs.

stator cover is about the same on the e models so that shouldn't be an issue.

just removed mine and put it on the floor it to do a comparison looks like the yz lever is bent more like an s and the xt is kinda straight but the offset looks pretty close so i'll risk getting one for my 600e and see what happens

thanks for the info yobbo

Hi,

I don't know if this is of interest?
MotoWard Shop

Is the YZ250 gear-lever the right shape?

I have a TTR 600 (kick start) that has a alloy folding lever I think its an oringal part,
not sure if the TTRE has an alloy lever as standered but the engine is much the same as a later XT600e.

looks like its back to the drawing board
