I've just purchased a pair of the smx5 from alpine stars from where I purchased my r3 for $189 today. Honestly I started riding my r3 with my tennis shoes. It was really easy to shift with it being minimal. Now with the boots it's a bit difficult and I'm thinking that raising the shifter a little would do the trick. I really have to move my foot and slide it in because of how thick the boots are. Any videos on how adjust it. Not sure I'd u adjust from the turn barrel or another spot. Thanks.
