YXZ At The Arizona Offroad Promotions Desert Race

George Hammel uploaded this yesterday.


Looks like he changed out the shift lever for a clutch.

It doesn't look stock and there's some kind of additional lever to it. Not quite sure what it is.

yea I'm not sure TBH like I said, its def not stock, but it almost looks like a better grip.

I mean its a dog box gearbox, you don't need to shift. Especially if he's a pro I would imagine he's used to the type of transmission...

Could be...

I noticed the extra 'lever' but I dont think its a lever, notice how the top of it is flapping around, almost like a rubber strip.. hmmm

It might just be a lever lock. So the shift lever can not be moved without first squeezing the locking lever back. (to prevent accidental shifts from bumps, etc?)

just doen't make sense for it to be a hand clutch, they're harder and slower to use, plus you don't need the clutch to shift a dog box...

That lever might be a trigger for a quick shifter.. it doesnt look like hes using the foot clutch to shift.. and you dont have to but you do have to lift slightly to get it to slide into gear as smooth as he is.. ill bet that lever automatically lifts as he pulls back. I've been looking for a quick shift for mine.. I think its power commander that makes those (not for YXZ yet that I know of) but I'm sure there are a bunch of other companies that make those too.. I'll bet that's a custom deal there or at least custom fit to the yxz from something else.

The driver replied to my question on youtube. it is a hand clutch. They installed that because hes not able to operate the foot clutch due to some kind of disability or injury.
