    Default Suicide shifter for a 2014.

    Has anyone done a suicide shifter? If so how well does it work. Any manufacturers that make them?

    To cut off any of the stupid comments.

    Yes i know why they call it a suicide shifter.
    Yes i understand the issues with them
    Yes i really do want one.
    Why... Motorcycle crash ****ed up my left leg. My ankle/foot doesnt bend very much any more to shift correctly. I can still push a clutch down with it (I have a 5speed car). But the lifting of it is a issue.
    Ive got at least 60k miles under my belt in riding experience so no im not a new rider.

    Im getting a m109r since i cant ride sports CORRECTLY any more so i want a cruiser with some balls to it. And this is what i chose since im a suzuki fan boy.

    Yes i know i havnt made very many posts. Please dont take that in to account when answering my question.

    I know Sly Dog did a suicide shifter on his 9, but I cant seem to find the build thread. We are friends here on the forum, but he must have lost his posts with the password issues years ago. Here is his bike, but he doesn't have a shifter side pic. Sorry, best I could do. Might shoot him a message and see if he could send you some info, but I don't think he is very active here anymore.

    Have you thought of something like this. My brother put one on his Triumph T-bird when he lost his leg.

    I actually looked at that, but part of the connection to the bike for me is the physical part of it. Shifting included. So i dont want to take that away.

    While not answering your question, here's my pinterist board on suicide shifters. Thinking about one for my Cafe racer.
    I'll be keen to see the end result.
