Gear shifter adjustment

How do I adjust the gear shift to accomodate for my new boots? I have a 2000 F4. I need to raise it up a little since my boot is bigger thn my old shoes I used to wear. Thanks.

I'm not close to the bike right now...I noticed the shift rod..it is as simple as holding one bolt and twisting the other until it reaches the desired height?

Don't forget, one end is left hand thread, the other end is right hand thread. The nuts are also lock- nuts, and must be backed off before you try to adjust it.

You'll need a 10mm wrench to do it.
As Tom already stated, one is reverse thread, and try not to over tighten them when you're done.
If you're near the shop, stop by and I'll adjust it for free.

Thanks Patrick. I may take you up on that. One of them won't come loose.

And the f4 is running great. Thanks for hooking it up for me, again!

Turn it the other way, thus 1 left and 1 right hand thread, shouldnt take much, dont goober it up, nothing is too simple to get messed up, should take about 20 seconds
