Triumph Alternative Shifter Peg Kit   A9778027    £41.00

This works well for me. It folds but is not adjustable. Did you mean in length?

I havent had to test its folding characteristic, luckily.

If not now, when?

Thanks for your reply and yes I mean adjustable in length.  I think a longer arm would make it easier for me to shift especially when wearing boots.

I have this one.   :152:

The shift peg folds in, and is adjustable fore and aft a little more than an inch.

Pricey, but looks really cool (if anybody notices your shift lever) and very sturdy and well made.

If you go this route, make sure you check your lever movement before you tighten it down.  Mine worked perfectly on all the shifts a tested it on, but I didn't check the shift from 2nd to 1st.  The lever moves slightly further on this shift, and I had to rotate my lever up one spline in order for the pinch bolt to have the clearance it needed for this shift.

Needed to move it up anyway to clear my Alpinestars Toucan boots.
