Adjusting Foot Shift

The foot shift linkage normally requires adjustment only to compensate for wear or when transmission has been moved. Only the shifter rod needs adjustment to maintain correct foot lever pedal position and prevent interference with the crankcase.

On FL models, mark on end of foot shifter lever shaft should be lined up with slot in foot lever and clamped. No alignment mark is provided on FX model.

On all but FX models, length of rod is adjusted by removing shifter rod end bolt, loosening shifter rod end locknut, and turning rod end farther on or off rod. On FX models, remove retainer clip and adjust the threaded ends on rod. Adjustment is important, as any interference will prevent full movement of foot lever and full engagement of shifting parts inside transmission. Securely tighten locknuts after adjustment is made.
