PostSubject: Shifter pedal adjustment   Sat May 01, 2010 5:50 pm

Has anyone else encountered problems with adjusting or taking off the shifter
I'm trying to adjust it up a Notch or 2 for easier shifting with my comp5s but the bolt thing won't budge at all idk if I'm doing something wrong or if it's stuck for good. Is there an easier way to adjust the lever up that I'm missing? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

the bolt unscrews just like a normal bolt. you have to take the bolt all the way out before you can remove the shifter to adjust the angle of it. if you are using just a regular 90 degree allen wrench you can take a closed end wrench and slide it over the end of the allen wrench to essentially make the handle of the allen wrench longer so you can apply more torque to the bolt. hopefully I explained that well enough for you to understand the second wrench thing.

I adjusted mine.

So you completely removed the pinch bolt?

If not remove it all the way.

You may need to insert a flat blade screw driver into the slot that the bolt pinches closed. and wiggle it around a bit to "unpinch" it from the splines on the shaft.

The gear shifter should slide off without needing too much persuading.

I removed the bolt all the way out. I took a tire spoon and placed it in between the frame and the shifter, and gently applied some pressure against the shifter arm. It came loose, and from there I wiggled it off the splines.

The shifter is held on to the shift-shaft with a pinch bolt.

There's a bolt that pinches the shifter lever onto that shaft.

If you don't know what that is you have now discovered why you can't adjust your shifter.



Red arrow (crude drawing) points to pinch bolt.

Standard thread as far as I remember.

Might need to let liquid wrench sit over night.

3 in 1 oil maybe?

Not sure what Shewolf means by weasel piss.

Weasel piss is Moovit. Actually I call anything that's used to loosen up rusty stuff or stubborn shit weasel piss.

Never heard of moovit but I have some liquid rench sitting on it now... Would heating it or cooling it help? I hate stubborn bolts!

Just make sure you don't have a flameout with that stuff on there. WD40 is like napalm when you ignite it.

Slightly on / off topic but I just finished adjusting mine the other day to lower it. The way the bolt has to go in to the shifter, you go only rotate it one more spline down from factory. If you go two splines down from factory, I don't think you will be able to clear the bolt to the frame when you try to install the bolt. As it was, I had to rotate the shifter to get the bolt in.

I'm gonna have to take a closer look at it but this could be a problem if I want to go down another notch...........

Strange, I got 3 splines on mine and never had a problem with it touching the frame.

letting the liquid wrench sit over night seemed to do the trick, that and wrenching on it both ways seemed to help too.
does anyone have an easy way to tell how many notches or splines you move it? it seems hard to tell if im moving it up one 2 or none at all

I took a sharpie pen and marked where it was stock on both the shaft and the shifter. Works great that way.

I had to raise my shifter up one tooth. My boot wasn't fitting too well under the shifter the way it came.

Speaking from experience, no it's not.

The only thing like napalm is napalm. Burning plastic might come somewhat close, but WD40 ain't even in the same league.

It's basically Stoddard solvent. Not something you want to be playing with around open flame, but nowhere near as nasty as napalm.

It was a figure of speech. Kinda like wearing a condom is like washing your feet with your socks on.
