I'm looking for 2 things to make my riding more comfortable. First, does anybody know where I can get something to keep the shift lever from hurting my toe / foot? Also, does anyone know of a "footpeg extension" for lack of a better term. The peg is just a tad too short for my size 12s.
Thanks,
Phil

You have to get rear sets they are adjustable for 500.00 to 600.00 :rolleyes:

Just look in the back of any motorcycle magazine for shifter boots - they are neoprene (wetsuit material) booties made to fit over your shifter. Problem is, they make it even tighter for your honking huge feet to fit under :) Here is one for under $10: PC Racing Shifter Skins - Street Bike - Motorcycle Superstore

As for the footpegs, the only option I can think of is rearsets - and usually they are slightly smaller than stock, to give better cornering clearance... When you say the peg is too short - I suppose you are meaning to say that it isnt long enough for your foot to fit comfortably? Rearsets will be even shorter...

Good luck!

Thanks for the tip. I could be worse . . . my son has size 16 shoes, barges whatever. He shows no interest in riding.
