Anyone have any luck swapping the shifter out or getting a shifter that is more adjustable.

My foot is big, Thats why I get it stuck in my "A*&" or my mouth half the time :)

But I like to adjust the shifter to sit higher then where my foot rests on the peg. The YZ does not give me that luxury.

Before I start looking for stare and compare shifters thougt I would see if anyone else has had and fixed the same problem... :D

You might try lowboy version of the Evolution pegs, they will move you back and down. If you are big this might open up the ergos for you as well as solving the shifting issue.

Thanks for the link
:) 219 bucks
Man for that my wife will tell me to cut my toes off first :D

I think what I will do is find a shifter from another bike, Steel and mold it to my liking.

My style of ride I set my arch center on the peg, this forces my shoe tip on top of or under the shifter. On Woops or standup riding I tend to hit that shifter and sometimes bad things happen....

Thanks for all the replies
