Shifter adjustment

I worked out how to adjust the shift lever for the lower peg position, but have seen a few comments that there is another place you can adjust the lever. Anyone know of this? Couldn't find anything in the service manual.

I have bought the Oberon touring pegs which give you another inch or so lower on the pegs, and I need to get the lever a little lower to make for a smooth shift without lifting my foot up.

Anyone had any experience with this? I see Pirates Lair have an shift lever lowering block as part of their peg lowering kit - does anyone have any experience of this?


EDIT: I contacted Pirates Lair, and the shipping to the UK is a ridiculous $46 - for a $35 part!

Anyone know of another lowering block? I could probably get one machined here for less than the postage alone!

Don't know where you can find any on that side of the pond. However, the shift lever has an adjustment for when you raise the pegs up and back. There's also a threaded mechanism behind the transmission that may get you some relief, but I don't know of anyone that's tinkered with it and have been successful.

That is probably the second place that I've been told about - and I will leave it as is.

I think it is off to the local Blacksmith for me... he is pretty handy with making little bits and pieces...

Thanks.

Move the entire linkage just one notch on the splined tranny output shaft. That will give you the adjustment room you need. Been there...done that.
