Does anyone know of a different shift lever that will work? Perhaps one from another bike (DR350, DR650, etc.) or a universal one? Any other suggestions?

Geez, it's almost like Suzuki didn't design the bike with 6'2", size 11.5 feet people in mind.

Bend the lever away from the cases until you have clearance. I went up to or three splines to get my size 11 alpinestars under the lever....

For a Mikuni BST31SS

Good idea but I will leave that type of modification as a last resort. Also, I am not sure that I want the lever to be farther away from the bike to the left. I'd rather just have it angled more upwards and have it farther from the footpeg.

What do you think about cutting a notch out of the never itself where it hits the engine casing? Has anyone done that? Will it weaken the lever too much?

What about moving the footpeg back? Any information on that?

Looking at the DR350 exploded parts views, it seems like the shift lever is screwed on from the top, not the bottom, which could make installing the lever a hassle, even if the spline size/count is the same. Even though no one actually provides any detail on the dimensions, it looks like most of the other DR's have a bigger lever.
