Shift extender question
on: October 30, 2016, 01:59:32 AM
Some of my riding boots are on the fat side in the toe area and it's a bit of readjustment to slip my foot underneath the shifter, Not a huge deal but was wondering would a shifter extender like the link below make it easier?

Hi ant, not experienced this little mod yet so it'll be interesting if it makes a difference? I have however fitted the rear brake extender and that definately helps me "find" it, don't use it much other than slow manoeuvres though. Good luck.

Well it arrived today and installation took 5 seconds.

Sadly with my sasquatch size 12 Riding boots it only made it harder to get the toe of the boot underneath the shifter.  :003:

Oh well, if you don't try.....etc.
