Shorter Foot Shifter

I recently picked up a 2006 Strat (had an 1100 Customer previously). I love the bike, but at about 5' 9", the forward shift control is a bit of a reach. Does anyone know of a shorter foot shift control available?

Appreciate any help you may have!

I did notice that the bike has seperate levers for the toe and heel shifter,and the splines and through bolt sizes are very common jap units.You may be able to remove yours and take to a motorcycle salvage dealer,or a Yamaha dealer,and find some that work..Randy

Shifter

NH,
I am only two inches taller than you and never really noticed this. The floorboards do set forward. Maybe in an effort to keep the seat and balance low. I bet though if you just ride you will become accostumed to the new bike and forget about it. You will love the bike like I do.
