I just ran across this video of a 6'4" person reviewing the newest DL650 and newest DL1000 both.

Longer gear shifter... any ideas or suppliers?

Love my 2018 DL 1000, but wanted a longer gear shifter for when I use my larger boots... any ideas anyone? Im 6 3 215 Lbs. Vstrom fits me perfect except this...

Ask Rick (adventuretech) if his shifter relocator will fit on the 2018. I use it on my 2014 and it is fantastic. He might even offer one that does not require lowering the footpegs.

Most people with really big feet have really long legs and need both.

You need to watch both the foot peg and control lowering kit and gear shift relocation kit installation videos.

I did work out a gear shift relocation kit for hobbits, but you have know to ask for it. No prejudice against hobbits, just a very rare need.

Gratuitous pic.
