    Those that have wider foot pegs.

    Did you have trouble shifting with boots on? Did you HAVE to use a longer shift lever.
    I finally got a pair of Fox comp 5's.
    But I'm having trouble shifting.
    I'm going to raise the height of shifter, and see if that helps. The boots are new and I need to break them it too.

    Did you have trouble shifting with boots on? Yes, wider footpegs definitely decrease the room available for the boot. This is further compounded by bulkier, less flexible motocross style boots.

    Did you HAVE to use a longer shift lever. No, but it definitely helps.

    I put wider pegs on my KLR and had to lengthen the shifter, which is why I haven't done it to the TW. I like the stock pegs on the TW anyway.

    Thanks.
    I was concerned about the wider pegs when I installed them. Because of my riding position. I ride very forward, so my right knee can do what my ankle can't.
    I'll stick they old pegs back on for my next ride.

    Zdiver, I wondered how you got search to work. But then I saw you were the OP.
    I also noticed the arc in MSR's lever.
    I'm back on stock and still having some shifting problems. I'll hang on to over size pegs for awhile.

    I do have IMS pegs and a stock shifter. I wear Gaerne boots with no issues.

    this kind of stuff is in the performance and customization area. and this is a perfect fit. the Gaerne boots are probably all leather and broke in and flex like Hiking boots.

    Padilen, It took a little getting use to shifting when I installed the larger footpegs. I had another learning curve when I started wearing protective boots. However, I got use to it both times and still use the stock shifter. I don't even give it a thought now. But most others haven't had the same result or comfort and have changed shifters, so you may very well want to go with the majority on this one.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
