YZ250X shifter and MX boots

Recommended Posts

Finally got to go for a long ride today. This was the first time with MX boots. Yes... I've always been that guy who just wore work boots until today. The problem is I had a hell of a time up shifting. I really don't want to move the shifter up as I like it pretty level. 

So what's the solution? Move it up and learn it being in that spot? Aftermarket shifter?

Personally I run mine just a little higher than the footpeg. I don't think it would take you long to get used to it. Are the boots new? Might just take a little time to get the "feel".

I also think you are probably not used to the 'feel' of an MX boot. (plus they're still new / not broken in)

In no time it will be the opposite, riding with shoes or work boots just won't feel right.


Same as zeke383 mentioned, I set my shift lever slightly higher than level.

My YZX shifter is still in the stock position. On my KTM, I have it higher. I can shift fine on either one, but I seem to have to make an effort to pull up more on the KTM due to the shift lever being higher. 

My honest opinion: it's the boots. Once you get used to them, you'll be fine.
