Yes, I adjusted mine due to my Double-H boots. It is not that bad, but you do have to remove the control plate. This means you will need the torque values from the service manual to safely reinstall the control plate.

Take off the front foot  pegs of the TTSE, but them in hot soapy water and remove all the rubber. Then see if you have enough room. It will make quite a difference.

Try not to destroy the rubber just in case you decide to put it back (which I doubt).

Do not adjust the shifter. They have been known to break when not adjusted correctly. There is a TSB on it.

I've got Daytona M-Stars and it took some getting used to it, but I wouldn't adjust anything.  The trick is to get used to bending your ankle enough to get the toe of the boot under the shift lever.  It's no longer an issue for me now that I'm used to it.
Ride safe.

I had my shift lever adjusted at the 500 mile service and I highly suggest you do not do it...put me into many shifting problems going into second gear...The minute the dealer reverted back the lever , it was perfect once again.

Over 10K miles on my adjusted shift lever. Not a single issue.
