Default toe shifter play

Im getting alot of up and down play on my toe shifter, bike runs fine, goes into gear fine just starting to get a little play. Any ideas?

The toe shift is nothing more than a lever attached to a pivot point... if there is more play than you like in it... then take up slack in the shift linkage rod. Having to adjust the linkage is not a defect... sometimes they "stretch" during hot weather or hard shifting or any number of reasons... just undo the lock nuts and shorten the linkage then re-tighten the nuts.
