Can the stock lever be adjusted up far enough that a MX boot with a regular size toe box be able to shift easily? Or am I better off finding a different shift lever? If so which one? And if I can make the adjustment how easy is it? It looks different from my other bikes...

The lowering brackets make a nice differenct.
Haha... That was actually the right side shifter to get into sixth gear

Here is a better picture of the lowering bracket with the actual shifter.
I'll note that I have bottomed out on them a few times.
