Gear peg adjusting?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to adjust the gear peg on bikes? Mine seems to be quite high so I really have to strain to flick it up with my heal still on the foot peg and my ankle aches like hell if I'm riding for quite a bit. Just wondered if it's possible to move the peg angle down a bit?

Thanks for any help :mrgreen:

undo the nut that holds the selector onto the splines, clean the splines and inside of the other end and refit, making sure it pinches tight, sounds like it isn't tight enough which is causing the free play.. while you at it, you may as well remove the sprocket cover and clean behind it, there been some posts on here about the crud behind affecting gear changes..

when you refit it make sure that it is tight, and that it is in alignment for your gear changing, they can be adjusted slightly by winding the link bar in or out after loosening the locknuts
