    Foot Controls... How to Adjust?

    I have tried looking in the owner's manual and have done searches here on this topic but I did not find anything so I will ask the question here.

    As I am getting more seat time on the new Trophy I am realizing that I am not 100% happy with the positioning of the foot controls. Both the gear lever and the rear brake pedal need to come up a bit as I am having to really rotate my foot down with my boot to get to them. This of course makes applying rear brake and downshifting more of an effort than I would like. Is this adjustment possible and if so is it an easy thing to do?

    There is a small panel just above the pegs that you can remove to reveal the adjustment nut.

    I had the gearshift lever raised at the dealers so I could get my toe under the shifter.  It is in the shop now getting fixed so that it will easily go into second gear.  It works fine 2 through 6 but hits neutral and I had to fight it to get it into second.  Anyone else have this problem?

    Best Regards,
    Gary

    I installed lowering pegs and adjusted a bit using the adjusting nuts/rod.  I also removed the lever from the peg that enters the engine case and rotated it just a tad.

    If you search the site you will find a few post strings about this.

    Keep in mind if you adjust the brake pedal you may need to adjust the brake light switch too.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the update!  I am not mechanically inclined and had to go back three times to the dealer to get my shifter set properly and where it would shift into 2nd.  They also worked on the rear brake and it seems to be doing fine now.  Best of luck to you!!

    Cheers,
    Gary

    I adjusted the shifter and brake controls myself and it entailed removing the side plates to get to the adjustments. I had to do it twice before I was happy. Started out the same with having to rotate my foot quite a lot to get it under the shifter.
    Another problem has surfaced in recent rides and it is that the shifting is becoming increasingly difficult and clunky, feels like a Harley!! It started out hot knife through butter smooth but has got progressively worse. Need to plan a trip to the dealer so the techs can take a look see. Will post findings when I do this. Cheers.

    Please post what the dealer finds.   I'm having similar  symptoms.  I'm at 33,000 miles.

    Will post results/findings re the clunky/stiff shifts but it may be some time before I can get to a "stealer" as I need my bike for transport to and from work. I will however post any results/findings when they occur. Cheers.
