FXR Shifter Lever

Hi -

I have a '93 FXR. I need to replace the shifter lever as it has worn to the point where the lever can no longer be firmly attached to the splined shaft coming out of the transmission.

Elsewhere on this site I read that the inner primary must be removed to accomplish this. Is this true? There's got to be an easier way.

So to answer my own question, yes the primary must be removed to replace the shift lever. I replaced it with a pretty chrome version. Someone should throttle the Harley engineer responsible for that design snafu. I have some images if anyone is interested.

While I was at it I rebuilt the front forks and starter and installed a Howard's Horn with the compressor located under the battery tray. The dust seals on the forks were beyond shot.

Turns out the shifter pawl also needed adjustment. I made a cut into the end an 11/16" 12 point combo wrench to get it onto the locking nut. Had I been thinking I would have adjusted it when the primary was off....

I for one would love to see any photos you care to post on this subject.....but if you attach them to this thread I won't be able to see them since only "paying" members can see them, IF however you have an account with photobucket you can actually up load them from there for all to see....

If you would prefer to send them to me direct only that's fine.....just e~mail me and we can set that up to happen.....I too WOULD also LOVE to SEE YOUR 1993 FXR and if you are interested I will attach a "photo" diary of sorts where you can go and see different 1999 FXR2's FXR3's and 2000 FXR4's and maybe get some ideas for your bike.....It's a thread I began over there.....

just click and read:
