    The shifter foot control is loose.
    I removed the outer portion of the foot control.
    There are two "sun" shaped bolt head on the fasteners holding on the inner portion.
    What should I use to tighten them up?
    I tried a few different sized sockets, none worked.

    The entire assembly is loose or just the shift control, the Allen bolt that goes through peg holds that tight

    Try a 12 point socket. Standard 6 point sockets wont bite.

    LOL
    I tried attaching a photo to the original posting... I should download the Tapatalk app...
    I was able to tighten the bolts back up using a 13/64 socket.
