Do I need to buy and install the shift lever extension too? Gear Shift Relocation/Extension - AdventureTech, LLC.

Thanks,

No, you don't need to run both the lowering and extension kit. I ran just the lowering kit until I got different boots, I just received the extension retrofit kit to give more working room for my A* Corozal boots.

I installed these on my 2007 Vee and really like them. I finally got to take a couple longer rides and they are great. I am average height with about 30" inseam but have a bad knee. The position of my knee is better and it seems easier to make slight adjustments of my foot on the peg to give just a slight change.
Great product!

The foot peg and control lowering kit WITH gear shift relocation is only recommended for people that are having trouble getting thier boots under the shifter. It's minimum move forward is 1.375". So it is always best to check with a ruler before ordering that option for the kit.

We do have a gear shift relocation kit that works without lowering the foot pegs. It's minimum move forward is only 3/4". You have to ask for that one by sending us a contact from from our website. It's $35.

Just ordered...




....from the guy that invented them.

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 bought new 4/26/17
2015 Victory Cross Country bought new 7/11/15 (dyno tuned 118hp 116tq)
If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

Just installed my lowering peg and controls today on my 2012 V. Everything went well until I got everything done and put the kick stand down. The boot on part 31 in the drawing (not sure if the V is the same number) rubs against the kick stand when putting the kick stand up and down. I tried adjusting everything I could find. The shifter, when adjusted so it doesn't rub, is level with the peg. The toe of my boot touches the the shifter.

Has anyone had a similar problem? Could I have done something wrong? Any Fixes?

Thanks, KKORO

Rick,
I tried to submit this question at the AdventureTech website a few days ago but haven't had a reply.
I have a size 11 boot and I'm already running your footepeg lowering kit and all was well until I bought some new offroad style boots that are much higher than my old touring boots where the shifter meets the boot.
My question; if I ordered the extension retrofit kit (smaller size) would that be of any help height wise or just push the shifter too far forward. I can't seem to adjust it any higher as it is now.

Thanks.

Henry

Hank,

I'm beginning to wonder if our contact form is still working. I'll check on that.

Regarding the shift extension. Your boots angle down while on the peg. It's the natural position an the reason the gear shift is 3/4' lower than he peg from the factory.

I'm willing to bet the shifter relocation retro fit will give you the room you need. Happiness guaranteed.

FYI Rick, I received your shipment on Friday (thanks) and installed that extension retrofit kit and it worked out great, not too far forward and allows me to raise the shifter to where I want it to be with the new boots.
Thanks.
