Great aftermarket product
I like this shifter better then the original OEM. Wish Rocky Mountain had a KTM color vs. the Husky blue color - that's the only complaint.

Durable and major improvement for shift feel
Shifting is a breeze now with this thing. Anyone with a size 11 or bigger boot will benefit greatly. I’m a size 12 and the +2mm is perfect for me. So far no color fade after about 100 shifts. Was a bit of a pain to get on with how tight the teeth are but better too tight than too loose!

for KTM's..These suck
This is my second Hammerhead shifter. The first one, 5 years ago, snapped in half after 3 rides in the NV desert. No bending...I just looked down and half of it was gone. Forward to today. I had gone through 3 OEM shifters in about 6 sessions [yes I am hard on shifters!] riding sagebrush and rocks in the dez so... I decided to try Hammerhead again. The thread locked on shifter loosened after one ride. I thread locked it again and took it to ID for a week. it loosened and oblonged after 3 rides and was substantially bent with very few hits, in fact I don't recall a hit. Believe the other reviews about the the machining not being a match for the engine shifter spine. After talking with a riding buddy he found the same with these shifters. They suck. I don't know about other makes but DO NOT BUY IF YOU OWN A KTM. I have gone back to OEM and will riding much more careful in the rocks. The OEM have there weak points but they can handle some abuse and be bent back so you can at least finish your ride with some sort of shifting capability.

Hammerhead Billet Shift Lever with Knurled Tip
Wanted a longer lever and this one is built well and allowed for a more comfortable foot position and keeping my toes from going to low and catching on rocks while shifting.

First.. great LOOKING shifter and ergonomics are amazing so all things perfect besides if you touch anything it will break and it’s expensive. I mean I guess you want it to break before messing up the tranny I dunno but stock I’ve bent on a hard hit and because of that I was able to make it home. This you’ll be stuck in whatever gear you were in for sure

A must for bigger feet
I was having trouble shifting. I kept missing gears. I moved the stock shifter higher, lower and nothing helped. So I figured I would try the 10mm offset and it did the trick. It's so much easier now to get my foot under the lever and make good clean shifts. Not to mention the added bling factor.

Worth the purchase for us.
Had trouble shifting from second to third on the holeshot with the stock level and another aftermarket brand. This on solved the problem with fit and accuracy first race. Kind of pricy, but worked out the week link on the holeshots.

what is the difference between the forged lever and billet lever?
Dylan L on Nov 5, 2017
Hammerhead Billet Shift Lever with Knurled Tip
Hammerhead Billet Shift Lever with Knurled Tip
Hammerhead Forged Shift Lever with Knurled Tip
Hammerhead Forged Shift Lever with Knurled Tip
BEST ANSWER: Forged components are hammered into shape while the material is hot. Billet components are cut from stock materials and generally have a more pleasing shape and finish. Because of the greater time and effort of CNC machining, billet products are more expensive. Forged vs. billet, in aluminum components, probably doesn't make a lot of difference in strength. Some folks say forged items are stronger; some say that billet components are. However, in drag racing, where performance really counts with very high $$$$ engines, everybody runs billet crankshafts. I'm sure that you won't see a big difference in a simple shift lever.
Does this (Part# 1374500038) actually fit a an 2015 WR250F? I have a Hammerhead 01-0224 (2015 YZ250F) and it does not fit the WR. Yamaha OEM is the same lever for both bikes, but the larger side cover on the WR fouls the Hammerhead YZ lever.
Glen S on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I checked into this for you and we do have this part showing it will fit your machine.
wr450f 2015 hammerhead gear shift lever, will that fit the wr450f 2016?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the lever for the 2015 will not fit on the 2016 since the shift lever has changed.
Does this shift lever fold away so that it doesn't bend or snap in a fall?
Eric L on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does have a spring that allows the tip to fold back and then return if you bump into objects. The lever only folds back and not up. I have had mine for a couple of seasons and am happy with it, I also bought the longer lever for comfort in shifting.
i have a boot size 10 US.. wich size of lever do you recomend? stock or 10mm
Diego G on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our son wears a size 12 adult boot. +10mm works fine for him mounted on 2015 Honda 150 RB
Would the same lever that fits the 2017 husqvarna fx 350 fit the same year fx450?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm going to guess that it would fit. I'm going to assume they both use the same transmission. If you want to absolutely be certain I would compare both bikes to make sure they both take the same OEM gear selector. It's pretty easy to do on RMATV/MC website. Hopefully this helps!
what is the difference between stock and 10mm?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The length in 10mm more, I prefer it this way. Very good shifter.
Should i take a chance and order this for my rmz 250 2017? . It says it will fit a rmz450 but im guessing its the samething. Help please
A shopper on Nov 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s most likely the same lever.. you can check to see if you can see by searching parts for your RMZ 250 and compare the part # to the RMZ 450
Will this fit a 2016 WR450? If not, which one will?

The gear lever is too long for me, is your gear lever shorter than the stock one, I was told there wasn't one made to fit yet?
