Can't adjust 1299 Panigale gear shifter

I loosened the locknut, but the linkage won't rotate -- it's locked up solidly. Am I overlooking something?

there is usually 2 lock nuts, 1 on either end of the rod.

Thanks for the helpful replies -- sorry it took me awhile to answer.

My 1299 has only 1 locknut. It's a 10-mm, on the right end of the linkage, as shown in Buhgaboo's photo. The left end has none, though.

There'a 17-mm nut, just to the right of the electronic shift sensor (as shown in attached diagram from the user manual). It was snugged very tight and I lacked clearance to get a wrench on it. I couldn't tell if it's a locknut or what.

Eventually, I determined that loosening the pinch nut that attaches the linkage to the shifter pinion would let me slide the linkage to just the spot that allows my wrench to fit between the metal bracket that holds the shift mechanism in place and a black plastic cover behind the linkage. I broke the nut loose and it turns out THAT'S the adjuster. The manual doesn't mention this and, in fact, the written directions are a bit misleading.

I tightened the pinch nut with my 17-mm wrench pre-seated on the adjuster nut, to ensure perfect positioning if I need to adjust the shifter further.

Thanks again for the help.

Yes, but only the 10-mm one on the right is a locknut. The 17-mm one on the left is the adjuster. It isn't drawn very clearly in the diagram (which was part of my problem) but is shown as the thing resembling a washer to the left of the location marked "A" in the diagram.

Come to think of it, the 17-mm "nut" is actually a hollow bolt that screws in and out of the housing that holds the shift sensor and bearing. The left end of the linkage enters it and is free to rotate. I can't tell how the hollow bolt hangs onto it.
