Street 500 shift lever

I just brought my Street 500 home yesterday and I am having trouble getting my boot under the shift lever. Is this adjustable? If so, is it easy to do or should I take it back to the dealership?

Take it back to the dealer. They should fix that right up for you.

Had the same problem ....chewed up the leather on my boot toe. You can raise it by rotating the long horizontal nut on the shift lever cable. Just take an adjustable wrench and rotate the nut.

I did it myself, very simple actually, took about 2 minutes.

I wish the rear brake adjustment was this simple. I tried to adjust it up, but there is very little range there to work with.

while we're on the topic, do you guys know if there is a edge cut shift lever for the street ? I've already got the shifter peg..
