Gear Shifting

Here's my situation, I hope someone can help. I've got Alba nerf bars on both of my 700's because I kept running over my foot. Any way, I put them without any issues and they look bitchin'. I do a lot of riding through tumbleweeds, sage, etc up here in Northern Arizona. Even though I wear boots, I keep getting stickers, twigs and scraps from my knees on down. I finally broke down and got some Moose Racing riding boots. They fit really nice and are comfortable. Now the problem I have is that the boot tips are big and I can not shift gears like I used to. I now have to use the side of the boot sole shift gears.

Is it possible adjust the gear shift higher up so my boot can fit under it?

Can you just loosen up your webbing? So that your boot will fit between the web and shift lever.

shonie777,
I had the same problem with my boots and did what "Red-N-BlackXXX" recommended. Worked great. If you don't like the excess straps hanging down just cut them shorter and melt the ends so they don't unravel

If you can't or don't want to adjust your webbing... you can indeed move you shift lever up. I did this because I have PRM side bars... no webbing to adjust. Just take out the clamp screw... all the way out... slide the shift lever off the splines... slow so you can go up ONE spline and slide back on and put clamp screw back in and tighten. It will take a bit to get used to the lever being higher, but once you do, it will be like the lever has always been there.

It's not the webbing in the nerf bars, it's just that I can't get my boot under the shift lever because it's way too low when I have my riding boots on.

Now that I know you can remove the gear shift and move it up, I will do that. Thanks!

I did the same thing once I got riding boots. I have no nerfs, but I was having a tough time getting the boot under the lever even without them. I slid it up a notch. Just like Roadkill said, it took a bit to get used to, now I forget I did it.

Undo the 10mm bolt that holds the shift lever on the shaft and take it off and turn it a notch or two to fit the boot. Easy fix in a couple of minutes. You don't even have to take the plastic off. Just reach behind it and take the bolt out.
