Shifter adjustment - help needed
on: May 20, 2022, 12:21:07 PM
I'm not familliar with a quick shifter and that configuration.

Is there any tips you can give me? I was thinking of adjusting the rod lenght, but there seem to be some wire attached with a clip, I don't want to break anything on it's first day :006:

I don't get it. Why would you want to tweak the QS? Mine's been perfect since day 1.

I altered mine as my foot angle caused isses changing gear.

Use this site https://www.triumphinstructions.com/default.aspx
Enter the Quick shifter parn number, a9770199

I did mine without removing the footpeg, cooling header.

If you struggle with the bottom clip, use a magnet to get it back in.

Took me about 15 mins

I don't want to tweak the QF, I want to slightly raise the shifter to allow easier shifting with my riding boots

Adjusting the shifting lever then? I get it now ;-)

How did this work out in the end,,,, I may, reluctantly, have to do an adjustment as my ADV boots don't manage the up shifts very well so the current procedure of only wearing my street boots is not a solution,,.

I don't want to upset the quick shifter which is absolutely perfect?

Hello All...
as an alternative you might want to consider fitting Pivot Pegz. I fitted these to my XCA a while back, and the definitely make operating of the gear change and rear brake levers a lot easier with both my street boots and Adv boots.
