shifter extension?

I need a shifter extension for the Wee. My goofy feet stick out and I have to do the "pidgeon toe" to shift. I'm unable to find one online. Does anybody make an aftermaeket piece?

since I've installed goldwing pegs, my shifting has become a bit pigeon toed as well

on my SV650, I purchased a stock shifter, took it to a local metal fabrication shop. Had them cut it in half and weld a 2" extension in the middle, plan on doing the same for my Vee

Are you looking to make the rubber part that your toe goes under longer? Stick out to the side more? Never seen anything that does that.

I believe I'll just heat and bend it.

I'm not clear on what you're after, but if you want a longer peg -- the part that your toe lifts -- why not just cut it off, drill the lever, and install a bolt with some padding? I know some guys have done that out of necessity when the shifter peg broke. You could do it pre-emptively ...
