EmptyM Posted June 14, 2020 Share Posted June 14, 2020 Does anyone else think the shift lever is too high? Mine sits about even with the top of the footpeg. Is this normal? I am coming to ADV riding from the world of sport bikes (11 years), so perhaps this is normal in the ADV world, but at least in these first few days of ownership, I find myself unable to make a series of down shifts. My size (6'3") means that the angle of my leg/ankle is such that if I lift/flex my foot as far up as possible, the lever doesn't rise enough to make the next downshift. I find that I have to lift my heel completely off the footpeg, whenever performing a series of downshift as when coming to a light or stop sign. I looked at adjusting the height of the lever, but noticed a small flange of metal protruding from the back of the footpeg bracket, that (appears) would prevent me from lowering the lever from its stock position. If my heel were like an inch or so higher, I think I wouldn't be having this issue. Normal? Just one of those ADV things I need to get used to? Thanks all. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
