90/6 shift pedal height adjustable?

I don't see a way to adjust the shift pedal height. I loosened the Allen head hiding it in place thinking I might be able to move the height by taking the pedal off and lowering it a few teeth. No luck. Is there a way to adjust the pedal height?

Thanks,

Jim

There's no way to adjust the height on the shift pedal as it came stock. You can retrofit to the later-model shifter, which uses Heim joints and an adjustable rod.

These types of shifters are pretty easy to find used, both on E-Bay and in the Flea Market. Send a PM to Beater, as he's recently gotten a huge stash of parts to sell. He's a great guy to deal with, and his prices are likely to be the best you'll find.
Here's a linky to his thread:

the relationship between shift lever and footpeg is changed by raising/lowering the footpeg, not the shift lever (on my r75/6 that is).
