Re: Trouble After Adjusting Shifter on 2016 RT?
Okay, think I might know what the problem may be ... woke up last night to use the facilities and on the way back to bed, remembered that I never checked for clearance with the side stand up (old habit of leaving the side stand down when using the aftermarket center stand on my Magna). I've got an Altrider side stand foot enlarger on my RT and I think it may be interfering the shift mechanism when it's extended further back as it would be when you lower the shift peg. I'll check it out after breakfast but this at least makes sense.
Edit: Confirmed! A case of farkle interference ... AltRider foot interferes with shift mechanism when the shift peg is lowered. Note that this is the same foot enlarger that BMW now sells. My options are to loose this foot, replace with another that doesn't interfere or mod this foot by relocating the one screw and grinding/cutting the foot base.
Guess I do my best thinking at night (when I should be sleeping) or perhaps the rest just cleared my mind enough to realize I should have checked for clearance issues in the linkage. In any event, I'm glad that's all there was to it.
