    Has anybody found away of raising the gear lever, as ive just purchased a new set of daytona boots and am struggling to get my foot under the gear lever on the upshift.

    It's a splined shaft, you can loosen the pinch bolt and adjust the lever to your liking. Also the shift linkage has a small amount of adjustment.

    Hi voodooo

    Tried adjusting on the spline, moved 1 tooth and gear lever was going to hit casing, ajusted on the shaft but as you say not alot of movement, so was wondering if you could get a shorter linkage.

    Have you looked at the linkage rod to see if you can screw the threads in any more to effectively shorten it?

    It won’t take much movement on the rod to raise the toe of the pedal.

    Sounds like a good plan. Shorten as much as you can .

    Yeah. Not enough. Thinking a new different length rod. Looks like an easy bend job of a straight rod.

    Yep ., You could buy a Norton rod and then shorten a bit ? And I mean just a bit , it won't take much .

    Had a go at adjusting mine. Moved the lever on the spline as far forward as it will go without the alloy cover restricting its movement. Then noticed that the front adjuster on the linkage had 2 locknuts - removed the spare nut and wound the adjuster in.
    500 miles over the last 2 days and the location now feels spot on.
