    Made a custom shifter peg from aircraft aluminium and anodised it ..... much better length than the factory one... uses factory bolt so I can convert it back to factory if desired in future... whole thing took about an Hour the lathe and an hour to anodise 4480C647-8E2F-4513-A497-5A584ED552E1.jpeg C55F3349-6BB6-4BAC-81CD-FB490638DAC4.jpeg

    Looks like a good mod. I have missed geared and perhaps this long toe shifter would help.

    Nice job. Oh the joy of machine shop tools.

    I don't have my shop tools here down in Florida, last ride on my k1200, I was almost home and went to downshift, and there was nothing there, my shifter peg was gone. I'm thinking about getting home, a dirt road off another dirt road, in 6th gear, but I felt around, and found the lever, it was only the peg. Bought a peg online for $6.99, and they even threw in a brake peg, too
    BMW only sells the whole assembly, a bargain at $125. :rolleyes:

    Neat work. I am intrigued by the choice of colour. Forward Planning?

    it stands out.... I can easily buff it back and anodize it any colour I like.... have blue red green black and purple sitting there... could get others.... the yellow gold seemed like the colour you get on some racing parts...

    I can remake the part a different size etc.... this is just a prototype first attempt but I like it
