anyway to adjust the shifter??

Recommended Posts

I recently started wearing size 13 thor t30 boots and now i am having trouble shifting my bike. There is not enough room between the shifter and the footpeg. This makes riding very uncomfortable. Is there anyway to get more room down there

Try going to the dealer and see if you can buy a longer shifter. If it was REALLLLLLLY that much of a problem, the only other thing I can think of would be to cut the shifter and weld a piece of metal in there to give it some more legnth. How much more room do you need?

I just replaced my shifter with one Hammerhead designs, it's as nice in person as the picture,shifting is easier with offset length and the longer shifter tip. Would recommend this to anyone. Go to www.shifttip.com and look at their site. They list recommended offsets per foot size.The +5mm works great with my size 11. they go up to +20mm . Fast shipping from them, had mine in 3 days

There's a pinch bolt that holds the shift lever onto the gearbox shaft. Slacken the bolt and you can rotate the shift lever upwards to accomodate your huge footwear.

You could also ask a surgeon to shorten a few of your toes :thumbsup:

If the pinch bolt does not give you enough room then go with the 95 CR250 shifter. I bought an IMS shifter for around $20 and it works great for my size 15 boots. No where near as durable as the original but it will work.
