1952 saw the introduction of the footshift. Panheads are now only offered in the high compression configuration. Also the last year for the 61ci. Difficulties with dirty oil clogging filters was addressed by the addition of a check valve and screen, which lasted until the screen was clogged. Placement of the 1953 lifters would resolve this. The exhaust valves were Parkerized (a chemical application to prevent corrosion).
Other Panhead changes: revised wishbone frame with inverted "U"-shaped toolbox brackets, quieter muffler, partial chain cutaway recess in rear fender. Late in the year saw the "rotating" exhaust valve, which were fitted with a new vavle stem cap that kept the rocker from bearing on the stem, allowing the valve to rotate when open. The mufflers recieved internal revisions to give it a more mellow tone. The model 32 generator was replaced by the model 52.
