    I didn't like them. The screws that adjust the length would come loose and they bend as a result of the cut where the screws sit.

    I have it....I love it! Works fantastic. I used blue loctite on the adjuster screws and haven't had any problem at all.

    Yeah...its expensive. But also a very nice piece of metal part. I've had no regrets.

    It works great. You must use blue loctite on the two small screws.
    I keep the flimsy factory lever as a spare with the tools.

    Here is a pic of the TT adjustable shifter with a foldable tip. It is $59. Not quite as pretty but my size 13 boot isn't that picky.

    I thought it was over-priced ... but after reading of several folks bending internals of the tranmission after get-offs I figured the fold-in tip combined with the adjustability was a good idea. I looked at the TT, but the look of it just thru me ... I've ridden Hondas for 30 years now after only a year of BMW ownership I'm becoming a snob ... :lol3

    I'm not sure why they made the tip spin, and that actually threw me off for the first couple days but it's all good now.

    Thumbs up!

    I have the TT adjustable gear lever but I have been looking deep into any adjustable Brake Lever for the F800GSpot.

    Any knowledge?

    Thanks for the input. Think I'll give it shot. Guess I should have considered the "was it worth the extra cash?" question before I bought a BMW.:D

    Oh, and remember the blue Locktight.

    I run the Wunderlich adjustable shifter it is very high quality. I also run their adjustable levers on the handlebars (Sweet but expensive).

    My neighbor gently let his down on the left side in the parking lot and bent his internal transmission parts. BMW took care of it under warranty cause the dealer could not see real marks from letting her down but I suspect the stock shifter was a contributing factor.

    Absolutely love the wunderlich one. I don't care about the pretty look, it is so functional due to this feature.
