It will do this almost every time under hard power up shift, no clutch.. Should I try to move it in closer to the bike? Maybe there is too much leverage? Like I said it is a very light touch now... Rizoma rear-sets are way too expensive.
From looking at those pics, I would say you should lower the footpeg a bit. It looks, at least to me, like it is too high for a comfortable ergonomic shift.
The slot in the spindle goes all the way around the circumference of the spindle, no? Just totally remove the bolt from the new shifter, slide it on where it is the most ergonomic, and then reinstall the bolt and tighten down.
