That's strange as I use high touring boots with two clapses and Velcro at the top and I change as normal.
It wasn't me !!

Hi Cowlsip and :400: to the Club !

Do I understand correctly that your new boots are too "tall" at the toes, and prevent you
from getting your boot underneath the gear change pedal to change up through the Gearbox ?

It was hidden away inside another Topic, but have a look here :
Very definite change after ECU upgrade.

My replies #121 and #125  refer to adjustments that can be made of the Gear change pedal position  :028:

Hello cowslip and welcome :400:

I have ridden my Trohy in a variety of boots and not had a problem. Everything from shortie boots to motocross boots.

Where did you get the boots from? I would be tempted to take them/send them back if they are not 'working' right

Park the boots in the driveway, run over the toes a few times with your car. The bike will shift fine after that.
