Anyone have any input on Hammerhead Deisgns shifters? I see they have a 10, 15 and 20 mm rise in the shifter tips.I wear a size 12 Gaerne SG and feel like I need a little extra room under the shifter. I think a smaller diameter might work because I don't really feel the need for more space on top of the shifter. Is there anything else out there besides Hammerhead?
Thanks

I wear SG12s and had the same problem on my 16 KX450F. I went with the +10mm Hammerhead shift tip and it solved all my problems. I was originally using the billet shift tip on my stock lever, which required some machining to fit, which worked OK for a 1.5 seasons until it wore out. I just installed their forged +10mm shifter and the assembly seems a lot tighter at the pivot joint, so hopefully is more durable

Thanks, I raised the shifter 1 notch but it seemed like it was too high. I'll give it a shot.
