How to adjust gear shifter

How do i raise the shifter on an 08 outlaw so i can get my foot under it with mx boots on? Can only ride in my new balances and havent had time to look at it to see how it adjust up.

With a guess, loosen bolt 15 and raise the shifter up.
May have to pull it out first from what look like splines.
This is a diagram for an `08 525.

Your welcome, sorry can't answer your parts fitment question as I don't
know. Just took a stab at the shifter question with looking at the diagram

Shifting is controlled by levers at the handlebars, connected by cables to the front and rear derailleurs... he derailleurs--devices through which the bike's chain passes--move from side to side to shift the chain from one sprocket to the next..

Make sure to put blue loctite on the bolt that holds the shifter, you will loose it if you don't. Recheck often for being loose.
