Hi All, I've noticed that 1st gear lever travel is quite a bit more than when I select 2nd gear(about 50% more) is there something that can be done to reduce the amount of travel when "going down the 'box"?
I do have a reduced movement in my right foot which I'm hoping will improve, but if I can reduce the travel it should help.
Shorter lever, but not so short you can't get your boots under it.
Yes,I thought about that Robert, however, the footrest is in the right place at the mo'.
Do you know where I might get a shorter lever from?( I could cut & shut my one, but will prob' need it for when/if I convert to roadster spec.
I will mention that the bike is a Norvil replica, so head down arse up, long tank,single seat, clip-ons & rearsets & reverse gear lever & camplate, so still 1 up, 3 down.
I've been thinking about going back to roadster spec & I think this is just confirming that my 69yr old legs/ankles ain't what they use to be!
I had a similar problem on a 250 Ducati. could not get proper riding boots to work ,I eventually resorted to a rocking pedal . Its all made worse with a bike that has a stretched out riding position . Time to get sensible if you want to continue to enjoy your rides. At 75 its something I know all about.
it looks like I'm delaying the inevitable!
Can't blame you for trying.
