    2023 T120. Is there anyone offering forward footrest for an occasional change of position on longer rides?

    You could achieve that with crash bars, I'd have thought.

    I thought about that but from the crash bars I've seen they'd be awfully high ,

    I have a 2023 Bonneville T120 Black Edition. I love the bike to bits but unfortunately I am having problems with the gear shifter in that If I wear winter boots I cannot get my size 11 feet in a position to shift up the gears. This is because the distance between the footpeg and the gear peg is too short for my boot to fit under the gear peg. I am trying to find a solution for the problem but I'm not getting anywhere. As I understand it, there is no adjustment on the lever at the splined shaft as this would effect the clutch. Does anyone know if there is an after market product that would enable be to extend the lever or to alter the position of the footpeg. Failing that I have a 300 GBP pair of Daytona boots that will have been a waste of money. Any help would be appreciated

    I didn't like the low position of the shift lever on the delivered bike so I easily removed it from the splined shaft and positioned it upward about 1/2 inch; worked great for my size 12 shoe.

    What RickM46 said. The brake pedal is a different story

    Yes, the brake pedal is a different story; I adjusted the brake pedal about a 1/2 inch higher but that was not straightforward; a little tedious but easily done; I took off the black panel (4 easy to get at allen heads) that covers the brake pedal linkage; had to study it a bit but saw that 3 things had to be done to adjust the lever:
    1. There is a pin with locking tab that needs to be removed connecting the lever to the linkage. Don't drop the pin or tab else they find their way into the framework and are hell to retrieve; I lucked out using a pencil magnet to retrieve the pin - one of those tools I bought ages ago but never knew when I would need it.
    2. There is a lower lock nut in the linkage that had to be loosened (there was an upper lock nut that does not need to be wrenched).
    3. Then you can rotate the linkage bolt to adjust the brake lever.
