my street boots are pretty beat so i threw on my astars and went for a ride. upshifting was a challenge. i looked at the linkage and it doesn't seem that there's enough adjustment to make it work. thought i'd ask before i started fiddling.
I have mine adjusted as much as it will go. Not much room, but I can manage. Works great with tennis shoes, but I want to wear the boots I bought to ride in.

LC8 pegs


I installed the Q-Tech shift lever roll and KTM LC8 footpegs on my GS:

It took me some time to get used to the roll but now I really love it.
And of course the KTM pegs are fantastic for off-road riding.
The rubber inserts are a very nice feature for LDR.

i finally got around to retiring my old street boots and making the adjustment to the shifter.

thanks for the advice on this looking like a turnbuckle but not exactly working like one.

i loosened the top, removed the locking pin and then decided i'd just remove it from the bottom as well. this made it really easy to adjust it all the way out so that my tech6's fit nicely under the shifter now.

15 minutes, and now i dont have to buy a new pair of boots. that's 200 bucks i can spend on some other bike related something or other.
