Default Shift lever fitment

Hi!

Will a 34606-75 or a 34606-86 fit a post -91 Sportster?

Would a 34606-74 fit?

Question is with regards to the splines on the shift shaft.

Many thanks.

Ronnies microfiche parts finder has a part number of 34606-90 for the shift lever on a '91. The -90 at the end of the part #, indicates that something was changed in 1990. Hard to say what the change may have been. If you know someone with the older model bike, ask them to let you count the splines & check the diameter of the shaft on their bike. In my opinion, that will be the only way to be sure what changed & whether the swap will work.

OK. Thank you.

Unfortunately I don't know anyone with an older Sportster, so I was hoping that someone here would know about this.

I've looked at high res. pics and they seem to have the same number of splines...

Sometimes, this can be determined by looking at aftermarket parts... If they make one part that supposedly fits across multiple years, then there is a high likelihood that the part in question from HD will also fit across multiple years - not always, but most times... Sometimes the physical shape is the determining factor rather than the bolt pattern or actual mounting...

Just be sure to check a few aftermarket suppliers because some of them claim compatibility incorrectly...

A quick check seems to indicate that the following groups are compatible:

1977-1985
1986-1990
1991-2005
2006-later

Here's a lever that is claimed to fit 1991 up thru 2017 - So the splines may very well be compatible across all those years (5-spd):

So, I have forward controls on my Sportster, on which the shift lever and the shaft that it attaches to has been replaced.

My guess is that they broke after the bike tipped over at some point.

The new lever broke when I tried to adjust it (it was stuck and brittle) and all I know about it is that it fits on the original shifter shaft of the bike, but doesn't look like the OEM part 34606-91 (mine's a -92). It needs to be straighter.

BUT, I've found a part labeled 34606-75, at several vendors, that looks exactly like the one I had on the bike.


This makes me pretty confident that a 34606-75 will fit my bike.
