Production bikes come with a folding shift lever mounted to the engine at a fixed distance from the footpeg. As this distance is cruical to proper engagement of the lever with the foot while standing on the footpegs. The manufacturers set this distance based upon the foot size of their model size rider for each bike type. In most cases, the footpeg/shifter compartment is sized for a rider with a boot size in the range of an eight or nine boot size. For riders with larger or smaller than average sized feet, the footpeg/shifter compartment is either cramped or too wide and the rider must change stance to comfortably and safely engage the shifter. Unfortunately, while changing stance makes shifting easier, it also places the rider in an awkward and imbalanced position on the footpegs.
