Shift Lever Adjustment

The shift lever is adjustable to accommodate a variety of shoe and/or boot toe thickness. The stock position was insufficient for my Caterpillar Steel-Toed work boots which are excellent for riding.

To adjust the shift lever height:

  • Loosen both 10 mm lock nuts (Note: the lower nut is a reverse thread)
  • Turn the Adjusting Rod to Either Raise or Lower the Shift Lever
  • Tighten both Lock Nuts
