Does anyone else have problems with the distance of the gear lever from the footrest? I am aware that the footrest could be rotated to move the footrest further forward but only to a point where the gear lever movement is not affected. On my CB77 the distance from the front of the footrest rubber to the gear lever is 5 inches which means that when my heal is on and against the footrest rubber I have to operate the gear lever with my toes, In order to operate the gear lever comfortably I have to lift my heal onto the footrest which is not comfortable to do. The same measurement on my Triumph T90 is 4 inches.
