1000 shifter mod

I just put on some KLR pegs and they are great.BUT now with offroad boots ( size 11 ) I can't get my foot in between the peg and the shifter.I tried adjustments and they worked a little but not good enough.Has anybody found another shifter that is longer ( say 2 inches or so ) that works??.I was thinking of one that bolts straight onto the shift rod with NO linkage.The touratech one LOOKS like it bolts to the rod but It doesn't say.I live 2 miles from Touratech so I will go down there and see if they have one to look at BUT knowing them it will cost atleast $100.00...

This came up on the 650 threads. I have the same pegs and oversize feet. the DL650 shifter is no better.

I bought a steel shifter and am having a 2" extension added in the middle.

Anybody know if this would work for the much better 650?

Another solution

Remove those KLR 650 pegs!

Then take them to the shop and take a grinder to the set of teeth on the front edges. Knock them down about 3/16-1/4 of an inch.
If you care to, then reshape the 'new' teeth with a dremel tool or carbide bit in the air die grinder.

I had a set of similar KLR 650 pegs. Replaced them with some quite modified stainless steel Moose racing pegs for a different bike and they have a profile similar to what I recommended above. Cures the 'fit issue'. Note that I did not modify the foot contact surface on the Moose pegs, but the rest of the peg to make it work with the Strom mount.

Rats. Why can't anything ever be that easy.
(well, other than falling off a log, or so I've heard.)
