AAftermarket shift lever for big boots?
« on: January 10, 2017, 09:03:10 am »
Hi there...looking for a recommendation. I bought some Forma boots that I love, but they are a bit fatter around the toe box than my other boots, making it a bit of a challemge to get my toe under the shifter. Are there aftermarket options that provide more room to facilitate use of a more dirtbike-ish boot to fit in there? Thanks!

Just adjust where the shifter is... make more room for your boot!

I wear a U.S. 15 or 16 shoe depending on manufacturer and the stock shift lever works fine for me. As an FYI Wunderlich makes an adjustable shift lever.

The Wunderlich adjustable shift lever was one of the first accessories that I bought for my S10. It's an expensive item at $170 USD, but it is a very nice piece. I believe it also fits some BMW models, FWIW. I wear size 14 boots and it works out great for me. Combined with the SWM adjustable footpegs, I now have plenty of room.

I see one on the web site, and it doesn't say how much longer it is. Can I get some details re: length of the various options?

Congratulations.

Jaxon, is one of your options the Wunderlich lever?

I wear a size 15 boot. (Yes, boot).  On all of my other bikes, i use Hammerhead Shifters (KTMs, GasGas, etc.).  These cost about $70.

No such luck at a reasonable price for the super 10.

What I did with my bike is remove the stock shifter tip, and replace it with a Woodcraft Eccentric Folding Toe Piece: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/woodcraft-eccentric-folding-toe-piece

it moves the shift tip out about 3/4" (if i recall correctly) and made shifting much easier.  It's been on my 2013 for 2 years, and has been flawless. 

Easy install - maybe took 1/2 hour.

Road to work today with my size 13 Gaerne's.
Paid specific attention to how easy it is to shift, since I normally don't even think about it.

Yep, it's nothing unusual.

I have Jaxon's shifter. I have no clue how much credit goes to that shifter. But nothing unnatural required.

Ummm, I was just saying, my boot is a little smaller than yours possibly, but not by much. And I have no problem shifting with Jaxon's aftermarket shifter.

Yea, I was a bit wordy about the whole thing. I can be bad about that. sorry dude.
