I got a 1300 c and all of the motorcycle boots i find are to tall at the toe to fit under the toe shifter. When attempted it was hard getting my toe in and out. Sneakers work well but do not offer the protection of the boot.
Do anyone else have that problem? Is there a way to raise the toe shifter?

+1 It's really pretty easy to adjust it (a lot of us have had to)
Just pull off the left side cover, and then you can just loosen the lock nuts and spin the rod to adjust the shifter where you want it and then tighten the lock nuts again and it's done (one is left hand thread and the other is the standard right hand)

Or if you prefer you can remove the shifter arm from the shaft and just relocate the arm a few teeth. (as shown in that link)

This seems to be a common issue with the C's. Guess they figure buyers have flat duck feet or something. I had "biscuit toes" on both my good boots till I finally figured out how to adujst the pedal higher.

Welcome aboard!
