Honda xl125v gear lever adjust?

Hi

I'm new to biking, and have a Varadero 125.
I got some tcx boots which are mohoosive and I can't actually get my foot under the gear lever at all. I can't find any info if its possible to adjust the gear lever. Is it just a case of undoing the 2 nuts on the linkage and twisting this to move the lever up? Or have I got to take the lever off the spline to make the adjustment, and will this work or is there further adjustment to make afterwards? Thanks

Welcome frozone,if you have an adjustable rod with ball joints use that, also consider using adjustable footrests for forwards/backwards/up/down.Or try using slippers.:shock:

Thanks, slippers and a pipe is prob more my style :smile I'm guts cos those boots weren't cheap and they're quite comfy (like slippers in fact). Will have a look on the bike after the force 10 hurricane passes through, lucky I lashed the garage down
