Shifter adjustment or farkle?
If I'm riding with my Combat Touring Boots, the shifter lever is simply too close to the toe of my boot, making for unhappy shifts loaded with false neutrals and missed shifts. If I wear my old harness boots, which aren't as thick, all is well. On my Connie, I just moved the shifter lever a notch on the shifter shaft splines and all was well. On the KRS, it looks as though there are two positions and that's it.
I've seen listings for thicker shifter lever ends, but I don't think that's what I'm after. I found one how-to that involved some serious grinding... oooooh, I think not. Has anyone seen a better solution to this issue? For that matter, who else rides with Aerostich Combat boots? What are your experiences with the shifter?
Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...
