Adjusting shifter...

Its been a while, but correct me if I'm wrong the shift linkages are adjustable ? My shifter is too close to floorboard, I'd like some more room under it.

Also, any suggestions on new brake lever ? I'd like one where I can put my foot under it and use the floorboards... I don't have huge feet, so the big guys must have even more of a problem.

Take the bolts off, front and back. Mark where the shifters are at. Slide off and move up one or two splines. Put back and your ready to go.

I adjusted my shifter up. Removed the back part of the shifter so I could slid my foot back there. I cut my brake pedal in half. Now I can slide my foot forward on that side.

I recently stripped the front shift lever 60 miles from home on back roads. (lotsa shifting) I managed to get home using the rear lever for both up & down shifts.
Woulda been tough with only one lever. I use the rear lever exclusively for upshifts anyhow, so it's stayin'.

Your question has already been answered, but you can consider these (relatively expensive) alternatives from Battistinis, the extended shift levers and brake pedal, which gives much more room around and under the pedals. I have never felt as comfortable a set up. HD makes extended billet shift levers for a bit less $, and inexpensive ones can be found on eBay, but I don't trust the build quality of these brand X items. The Battistinis stuff could be used in bridge construction, yet are very light.

Also, the bolts are friggin' tight and easy to strip if you don't use your tools properly. The top bolt is easy but the bottom one can be a pain.

You can also loosen the jam nuts on the shifter rod and make a couple turns to raise or lower the shifter. Where the shift pedal goes through the primary its just a pivot point.
