How cool does the muffler shield stay? I have a Wolfman tail bag I would like to use until I get some racks. Just don't want to burn it for it's a sweet bag. Looking at a couple of weeks and I should have a ST

Sweet. Thanks Wolftrax. How do you like the Great Basin? Looks pretty bomber and waterproof to me. Eventually, I'll be rocking the Pelicans (recycled from the Wee Strom) and a Givi rack. For the long haul, I'll use them and the Wolfman tail bag combined. Not too hip on the top box idea.

I had a brand new 1975 DT400 Yamaha that was yellow and it was a nice bike for it's day. Don't mean to spoil anyones idea of the ideal color scheme, but dang those two yellow teneres are disgusting.

I'm very pleased with the Great Basin. Big enough, strong, waterproof...

shift lever

Finally! Now I know what all the rave is about. I test rode a blue beauty at Cycle Nations of Canton (GA) with a super helpful salesman, Jerry. He took me out on a nice little loop, not once, but twice, as he was riding his bike. I think S mode is my favorite!

I've answered the question of which bike would I buy. I will be getting one at some point, in black, here is my question (today):

Is it possible to adjust the shift lever to accommodate my personal liking?


The bike is really quite nice, a beautiful blend of fun and functionality!

Thanks!

pic is borrowed from a jaumev post. You can see the upper linkage has splines as well as
the connecting rod has adjustment so you should be able to find a sweet spot for your foot.

Thanks Pluric, that's what it looked like to me, there was some threading on both ends of that rod, so maybe a tweek here or there will adjust it a smidge to make my foot happy!

Many thanks!

YES! for a small fee....

If you're referring to the stock one... yes, you can adjust up and down. If you need forward/back, you need to get this one...

Cool part, wish it were cheaper. More than the adjustable feature, the more crash-worthy folding tip would be the main attraction for me.

You’ve got a cheaper alternative using the OEM shift lever, cutting it and soldering the Touratech folding lever for GS: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/2...00GS-Adventure

Thanks Jaumev, those are nice!!! Nice ride! If only we could get white in the US. Even if we did, I couldn't wait that long. It looks sharp.
