As Patrick said just reverse the cam plate. The hard part is finding the correct shift lever.... if you're looking for originality. Otherwise a normal 77 and up shifter will work.

Hi Coz
Thanks really appreciate the offer that would be perfect, as I’m new to the forum I’ll work out how to submit photos of the parts I need from the parts catalog, just finished work so will try to sort over the weekend, thanks again Mark

Hi Coz, sorry for the delay in posting the images, but not the easiest thing to work out. Hopefully you can see from the drawings the 3 parts that i need measurements for if that's something you can help me with. Thanks.

Difficult to measure the bits when assembled as access is limited.

Fairing Brackets:
A metal tube ½” diameter and 6” long. The two ends are flattened approximately 1” each from the end of the tube. The end that attaches to the fairing is bent approximately 45 degrees. The end that attaches to the headlight support is bent about 10 degrees to fit up with the headlight support.

Voltage Regulator Support Plate:
Is 9-5/8” long at its longest point and 2-7/8” wide. The tab that is bent and attached to the headlight support goes inside the headlight support (see photo). Can’t measure the length of the tab but it’s not a critical measurement.... probably about an inch.

Turn Indicator Bracket:
This would be tough to make as the two square bits on the end of the tube are at an angle to each other (see photo) to correctly align the turn indicator. The central tube is .56”in diameter and 7/8” long between the plates. It extends into the tailpiece but is hidden. The “L” plate that attaches to the turn indicator is .82” long and .65” wide. The 90 degree bent part is .22” long (outside length). The “L” plate that attaches to the tailpiece is 1.3” long and .92” wide. The 90 degree bent part is .44” long (outside length).

Hope this helps. Coz
