Gear shift lever fell off today while riding home from work. Was getting off of an exit from rt101 at my home exit in Grover Beach and there was nothing to down shift with. Luckily I managed to keep shifting just had to turn my foot inward more to grab the lever by a ridge on my boot. I must say, this is not making me think “Hand Built at donington hall” is a good thing. Kind of disappointed to see something as simple as this just fall off. But oh well. I made it home alive. I drove back to the spot where it fell off but I couldn’t find it. So I spent a little bit of time making my own this morning. Made the lever out of an m6x45 bolt and two different gauges of aluminum pipes slid on to each other to make the finished lever thicker. Hoping to find a thick piece of rubber sleeve to finish it off. I put a small nut on the inside in hopes that it will stay on this time. Used red thread lock. Will let you know if this one falls off too. Anyone else deal with this before and have a better solution?
