How do you adjust shifter?

I have searched for the answer, as well as looked at the PDF of the manual. My KDX has no linkage, so moving that is a no-brainer. I'm not sure how to do it on the Wee, though.

I just installed the footpeg lowering kit, so I need to lower the shifter accordingly.

never mind...

I figured it out. Now, if there was an easy way to get the brake lever lower. I know Greywolf cut his pushrod, but I'm not much of a mechanic, so that scares me a bit. Maybe a project for this winter.

I took the pushrod out to cut it. A pair of circlip priers is handy for that. It's important to turn the assembly upside down because it will leak brake fluid. If I had it to do again, I'd leave it in place to cut it. If somebody would post the pushrod diameter, I can make a sleeve.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
