Default Suicide/jockey shift.

New to this forum and have seen alot of threads on jockey shifts, thought i'd post up pics of mine. 80% of the parts were already on the bike, shortened down stock clutch cable. Used passenger peg mount to hold the clutch cable in place(still have adjustment) Used rear brake lever just cut the pad off and welded it on other side. other than that it was just some old bike pegs a piece of pipe and a gnarly lever i got from a buddy a couple years back. Let me know what you think.

The angle on the clutch pedal scares me. it looks likely for your foot to slip, say from oil off the road sometime, (there's a reason those are called suicide clutches).

Yea i noticed a lot of people have theirs at a higher angle, not sure how that is comfortable? my heel lays right up on the front of the case and it's very easy and comfortable to engage and disengage the clutch. I'm also 6'2" so maybe my reach is a different then some of the others??

Nice!!
Love the use of the upside down brake pedal...it's hard to tell from the pic, what is that holding the clutch cable right behind the pedal?
And where did ya get the acme shift ball...that kicks ass!

Its looped around a metal sleeve so the bolt and the cable have no friction. Than i used these little pieces you can get at any hardware store to crimp the cable, same way a garage door is done.
As for the shifter that entire lever was off an old piece of shop equipment, the ball is actually formed onto it. I just had to make a sleeve inside of it with a set screw to hold it on the spline.

Yeah, I got that part...it's just typical industrial cable clamping. I do that all the time at work...I'm asking about the part holding the cable behind it...it looks like a peg "arm" or what ever it's called that highway pegs mount to with a hole drilled through it, maybe??

That's slick. great job man. How did you do your rear break setup on the other side? Can I see a pic of how you mounted that bar on the frame? Thanks

It's the passenger peg mount off of the swingarm.
