Re: Just got new boots - A PITA
Just an FYI...... Been wearing the boots a lot and that helped to break them in, (spent an hour or so rubbing in some mink oil) but the best relief occurred yesterday by raising the shifter about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. I had the bike in the local shop for a semi-annual break/clutch flush along with other assorted things I just don't feel comfortable doing myself and mentioned the shifting problem to the guy working on my bike.
He simply took the shifter apart, checked all points and then adjusted it a little. The ride home was such a pleasure and just like it used to be. Boots still a little stiff, but raising the shifter lever a little made the big difference...
