Daytona M-Star Boots
« on: August 24, 2017, 03:15:10 PM »
I have a 29" inseam, and my standard height XR is nearly too tall. I don't want to lower it, so I purchased Daytona M-Star boots which help my reach to the ground; however, I cannot fit my toe under the shifter using the stock setup. SW-Motech makes an adjustable shift lever, but it only adjusts forward and aft, not up and down. Has anyone used it to accommodate a taller toe box, or am I relegated to purchasing HP rearsets?

After breaking in the boots for a day, they work fine wth the stock gear shifter and rearsets.

I have the same issue and found the same boot-based solution, however you can rotate the shift lever on the splined shaft to change the position if you find the need to later.  That's what I did and it is more comfortable when doing long days with lots of gear changes.
