gear lever rubber
« on: June 12, 2013, 04:00:08 pm »
anyone know the part number for the gear lever rubber? I want to match it up with the one on nfieldgear before I buy it.

I lost mine the other day, didn't even notice til I got home.

2012 C5.
thanks.

I intentionally removed mine - it was too fat and impeded my shifting.  I replaced it with a bit of heat-shrink tubing, more for looks than anything else, I guess.

Anybody know of a proper rubber replacement that has a smaller outer diameter?

I used a piece of large fuel line on a couple different bikes.  Works well and is super cheap.  You can use a can of brake cleaner and a rag to get the white writing off of it too.

Good idea!  Fuel line isn't exactly "super cheap" around here, and the local joints only sell it by the foot.  It'll be a few bucks, anyway...
