worn teeth on gear selector- 3aj tenere

hi can anyone help, ive just bought a tenere for a trip from london to perth next year and when i got home the gear lever came loose, (great start). ive had a look at the shaft and the lever and found the teeth to be worn down, with a bit cut off the clamp so i can tighten it a bit more than usual it still spins on the shaft. has anyone got any words of wisdom on how i can solve this anoying problem.

Hi
I had a Triumph Herald once with wire wheels, and worn hub splines. I used to wrap a couple of layers of aluminium foil onto the spline before putting the wheel on. It worked wonders and I drove it like that for months.
If it works for a constantly revolving wheel, its worth a try on a gear lever shaft.
Good luck Dave

The best solution would be to replace the shaft and the lever but I gussing you are looking for other suggestions.
One option would be to install the lever and drill a hole where the spline is so half is in the lever and half in the shaft, your could then drive a roll pin into the hole say 3/16". or for extra security you could drill and thread it say 6mm and install a bolt. This would keep the lever from spinning ot the shaft.

thanks for all your help

Sadly I was lying in bed last night thinking about this problem. Not sure what that says about me. I too came up with the idea of drilling a small hole through the lever, but also through the shaft, and inserting a split pin, or an R clip.
Hope this helps
Dave
