Can it be rotated upward on the shaft splines? Also thinking about one of the aftermarket folding levers.

Does anybody know if this shift lever will work on the LRP?

I experienced the same issue with my Tech 8's. I ordered the folding shift lever from Bestdualsports and it fits on a little higher on the spine raising the lever about 1/4 inch eliminating the problem.
