Default Shifter

Guys, My GF is looking into trading in her VTX 1300 for a Kingpin she saw at Victory when I purchased my XCT. Anyway, she likes the bike except for one thing and that is the shifter, it is to high for her. I know on the XCT you can adjust the shifter a few inches foreward, rearward or more center as I'm sure the KP is the same but, can you lower the shifter some. The salesman said yes but, I don't see it so I figured I would ask the people that ride the Kingpin. Thanks.

You can raise or lower the shifter on the existing axis... however you can NOT slide the shifter forwards or backwards like on the cross bikes.

Keep in mind the 8-ball and 2011+ kingpins have shorter-reach floorboards and pedals. Which one did your gf look at?

It was a 2011 in Crimson. It had a stage 1 with a small fairing and windshield. It looked sweet.
