    Has anyone adjusted their shift lever higher. I need to know so I don't have to pay the shop to do it for me. It really hard to get to. Thank you in advance.

    for more info.

    I've done this, but don't have any pics of the process, I'm on a Snowbird trip.  I do recall that the cover that blocks access to the shifter adjustment CAN be removed, with some difficulty, without pulling the entire fairing side off. 

    Be sure and test for clearance and travel to allow shifting with boots, etc. and be sure to leave enough threads engaged for security...

    If you delay or advance the rod, it may be that the spring of the gear selector is somewhat tensioned and is forced.

    You can try doing this another.

    Once you do one thing or the other, what you would do is place the important screws and before you finish the job, go out and try the bike.

    You must disassemble the cover shown in the following photo:



    First remove the cover where the plug of the BMW lighter is, is under pressure, inserted between two rubber stops.

    Then, remove the cover that has the two small Allen key screws.

    Under the cover, you will find a screw with nut and subject to the subframe of the motorcycle. Remove this, plus the two tortx screws from above, below the footrest has another tortx screw. Total there are 3. Next to the left footrest you will also have to remove the Allen screw.

    Once all the screws are removed, you will have access to the gear pedal.

    Now take a closer look at the following photo:



    As you can see! on the axis of the gear selector has a mark with a hole centered on the aluminum support of the gear pedal.

    Well, now loosen the screw on the bracket and carefully remove the bracket. Re-enter the grooves of the gear selector shaft by delaying or advancing (now it is a matter of deciding whether to raise or lower the gear pedal a bit) one or two grooves down or up.

    For you to see how it is done, I have allowed myself to show you the example of raising the gear pedal support two points with respect to the axis of the gear selector.

    In the following photo you can see the support moved by two splines, with respect to the axis of the selector.



    I would like to know why you want to raise the pedal? Doesn't the boot of the foot fit?

    I have an extra thick sole on my boots so I can reach the ground better. My boot sets heigher on the peg so I have to angle my foot way down to get under the shift lever.

    I understand clearly...

    I measure 1.63 cm, I changed the cranks to get to the ground better, since then, I take the suspensions to a helmet and a suitcase, when my lady comes with me, I put them in 2 helmets.

    Whether I go alone or with the lady I get to the ground very well.

    When I installed my Knight pegs, I adjusted them (foot levers) too.  I did not remove any of those panels though.  A bit of patience and thin tools let me do it from the edges.  I adjusted mine about one 'tooth' as well as a slight adjustment on the adjusting rod with the nuts/jam nuts.  It was finicky and would probably have been easier if I had removed those panels though.

    So today I had the time to adjust the shift lever lower because of adding Knight Design lowering footpegs (drops peg height about 1.5 inches) and adding heated seat ( tallest seat of the bunch) is perfect for stretching out and a more comfortable riding position for me at 6'3" ! :028:

    Adjusted brake lever approximately 1" lower last week by turning rod ends...would like a little lower but seemed to be the max. Also adjusted brake light switch.

    Today I attempted to adjust shift lever by removing arm off of splines and rotating to desired height ( as done by other members)
    Loosened bolt on arm and attempted to slide arm off of splines. Arm would stop after about 1/16 inch of movement...I figured it would slide right off after loosening bolt!

    Don't want to force anything and any experience with this issue would be welcomed!

    Also noticed, while down there , I'm missing a small infil panel, L/H side right behind vent...1 more thing to order!

    Below are pics of  R/H infil panel and missing L/H panel.
