I hate to bring this back up again, but what size TKC's are you guys running on the scrambler? I need to get some for my bike and cant find the sizes in this thread.

I don't have TKC's but... Continental makes them in the stock sizes: 100/90-19 Front, 130/80-17 Rear. This website has them.

How "universal" are the splines and diameters on shift levers?
What I'm asking is: If a folding shift lever made for a Honda CRF will fit the Scrambler, would one for a KLX also fit? If so, this one looks like it has a good shape to it that might not require any bending to fit.

Don't know about spline size, but the KLX shifter looks like it will stick out too far to the side. I bent the CRF shifter in to be closer to the cases (only because I'm fussy, it's fine as-is) and it is straighter than the lever in your picture.

I was told by my local MX shop that not all the manufacturers use the same splines. The Honda ones do fit.

I just put an after market one yesterday that was one inch longer and on the package it says it fits CRF 50/70 XR50/70 03-04 and all XR100 models. It went straight on no mods needed.

That sounds even better.


Now how about a folding brake pedal. I think that could be a bit trickier.

I bought if off a guy locally here for $25, he had a whole box of shifters. I may go back over and buy another for one of my other bikes. So I put the new shifter at his house and discarded the package, but it was a blue package, I kept the corner section that said what it fit and the IPC # is 83-88033. Not sure if that helps, but when I go back I can get the name, or if anyone is interested I can buy what he has left and ship them?

I will try to post a photo soon.

I have 110/80-19 and 130/80-17 and it handles fine. Feels a bit strange to begin with after the trailwings, but you soon get used to it.

Perfect. If I bend the CRF150 one, I know what to replace it with

Considering the Deathwings feel strange. Are you sure you got that the right way round?
