BMW /5 (70-73) Airhead Boxer stainless steel short gear lever
FlatRacer BMW /5 (70-73) Airhead Boxer stainless steel short gear lever
FlatRacer BMW /5 (70-73) Airhead Boxer stainless steel Kinematic type short gear lever
Our FR BMW /5 Kinematic short gear lever is pre-assembled and includes:
- 1 x FlatRacer stainless steel gear lever selector clamp
- 1 x FlatRacer stainless steel short gear lever - accepts M6 rose joint or M6 clevis.
- 1 x Stainless steel retainer split pin (fitted under pressure for positive and secure location)
Designed and developed by us, precisely machined out of 304 grade stainless steel for minimal maintenance, long working life and corrosion proof.
Our s/s gear lever is designed to replace the original alloy gear pedal directly fitted to the BMW 4 speed gearbox selector shaft by the use of a wedge/cotter pin.
This stainless steel short gear lever is particularly useful for the use of rear sets, as supplied with our BMW /5 1970-1973 rear sets.
Outstanding period look, sturdiness, quality and durability.
It will NOT fit the later post 1973 5 speed gearboxes. Please see our other listings for the alternative lever for the later boxes.
1 - Positioning of our gear lever is exactly as per the original gear pedal so take note when removing it. Please retain and use your existing 8mm cotter/wedge pin to secure our lever clamp in place.
2 - When fitting rear sets, these commonly use a remote linkage rod to operate the gear lever. This may interfere with the kick start pedal if fitted. Adjustments (fitting the rod and lever upside down) or abstaining from the use of the pedal may be required.
Similar assembly also available for the later BMW Airhead Boxer 5 speed gearbox introduced in 1973. Please see out other listing for more details.
