    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

    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.

    FWIW I recently installed these, they do help some.  They can be installed in either standard or lowered configuration, although it doesn't lower much (8 mm/.31 inch).  Their support rep suggested trying them first at the standard height, which I did.  The pivot motion does help with the foot angle some, but I still wound up reinstalling them in the lowered configuration.  I haven't had a chance to ride with them yet, but just sitting on the bike it is easier to get my foot under the shifter.  That said I suspect I'll still have to adjust the quickshifter linkage, but really hoping to avoid that if possible.  BTW Pivotpegz are considerably longer and wider than stock, definitely an improvement in comfort.
