Shift lever adjustment
« on: November 03, 2014, 03:57:55 am »
A few weeks ago while I had my Trophy in for 30K mile service & some new tires, I asked about raising the shift lever so I could get the toe of my thicker, cold weather boots under it. The serve tech could only adjust it a little bit before it would hit the engine case. He said he could bend it out just a little & it would clear and allow much more adjustment but he was hesitant to try to bend it fearing it might break. So he ordered a replacement to have on hand just in case it did break. I went back a couple weeks later & he took it off, bent it out just enough to clear the case & then adjusted it up so I could fit my heavier boot toe under it. Much better and the lever didn't break.

I have the same issue and was told they hadn't done one yet but suspect they might need up to two hrs workshop time  :084: might give it a go myself.

The problem I find compared to other Triumph boxes is that it needs a much larger release stroke and if you haven't let the lever drop far enough it hasn't released the engagement dog. I could go all the way through the boxon 1050 Tiger with only tiny movements.  Takes a bit of getting used to but you feel such a muppet in your nice shiney new boots  :034:

Good to see your dealer was thinking ahead  :028:
