I have Fox Comp 5 Offroad boots in a size 11.
I already tried grossly adjusting my shifter lever up by a couple of notches and realized that I am not able to shift any higher than neutral because my shifter lever contacts my footpeg.
I have tried to locate an offset shifter online that adds 1-1.5 inches of height so that my MX boot can comfortably slide under my shifter with negative results.
I have also read up on some other forums such as advrider.com and thumpertalk.com and found nothing referencing offset shifters (short of a machine shop creating an offset).
Help!
Thank you.

I don't think there is any shifter options like your after.
Touretech makes one for the 1000 that is longer than stock but will revearse your shift pattern. but that doesn't fix your problem.

VStroma makes a exact replacment for the Wee that has a folding end and is steel.

Since its steel it woudl be easier to modify like you want while keeping its strenght.
I've got one on order but so far its not shown up yet. :bom_thumbsdown:

Those are the only 2 options i've ever seen posted.

Reverse shift pattern

Here's something I came up with last night in the shop.
It mounts to the stock shift arm with some stainless hardware.
Put it on this morning and went for a nice test ride.:D
Works nicely with quick positive upshifts.
Took a few minutes to get used to it. ;)
The shifter tip is 1.25 inches futher forward than the old one.
Makes for a 1 up 5 down shift pattern.
I wear steel toes work boots when I ride also.






No snow here but the bugs are out already !

If you want some lower foot pegs Fastway makes some really good stainless low boy foot pegs.

Okay, enough is too much. This is the second post where comments made your location relevant, but "Earth" just doesn't pin it down. The other had a pic of Texada Island? Are you in BC?

I was just being cautious. BY THE WAY The shifter works Great ! ;)

I reside in Cranberry which is a nice little place where even the Bears are nice. :angel_14:
I run a small MTN bike repair shop in my off time. Life is sweet 5 minutes from the trails.
2000+ hours of sushine per year. Great growing season. I have a green house.
200+ inches of rain per year. lots of mud in the trails.
Summers 25-35 C
Winter -5 - +5 C
I ride every day of the year.
If I'm not working or in the shop I'm riding/trail building. :bom_smash:
Been building trails since '92. Its great for business.

One year I put over 10,000 km of trail on my MTN bike. I had a computer that measured everything imaginable. I crashed and lost it one day.
This is like Mecca for MTBers and hikers aswell as fishing and hunting.

most people who come here never leave.
It`s wet but I can handle that !

It's kinda like a bad secret.
