Hey REWDOC, had same thing happen to me, could always downshift, couldn't up shift. Dealer asked me same thing about boots. It WAS! more specifically, I found with my new boots I assumed a different foot position on the shift lever, more to the outside of the lever. After dealer thoroughly checked over the bike, I toed my foot more inward towards the bike, problem solved. It was immediate, and it was amazing. That shift lever doesn't like angular pressure.
