Measurement needed on gear stick

PostPost by: gjz30075 » Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:55 pm

Hi all. Can someone measure the distance from the top of the hemisphere of the gear stick to the
apex of the bend? If possible, also, what the angle of the bend is?
Thanks!

Approximately 55 degrees, or 35 from vertical. Not sure exactly what dimensions you are seeking, but do the attached pictures help?

Henry, that close, thanks. Knowing the angle is helpful. Attached is a pic of the stick with a measurement needed between the two points shown.

Ah, you need the non-anti-sizzle version, too. Don't have one of those to measure.

My TTR gearstick which I am pretty sure is identical to the original one is 57mm
