1979 CB400TII, It seems like the shifter is too far out to the left but it is really close to the engine housing.
It is hard for me to get my toe under the shifter to change gears. I am going to raise ir a little and that may help.
Maybe I need a longer foot peg??? The bike is stock but the shifter sticks out almost as far as the peg???
any ideas??? I do not have this problem with my CX500C,

Picture looking straight down would be good. Just measure the T1 and there's @6" between the foot peg and shifter. It's quite possible that someone used a CM shift lever or foot peg since they are direct swaps but wrong positioning.

Got some pics. First 3 are the CB400, last 2 are the CX500.
The foot peg on the CB400 may be bent forward.
And like was stated, may not be the correct peg for this bike
but right and left are the same.

The CX is much easier to shift, the CB is a struggle.
Comments please.

I'll check tonight, but your shifter looks okay(has it been rewelded?) but your foot peg looks bent forward?

The shifter does not appear to have been repaired but compared to LDR's photo
it is too short. Doode"s peg looks longer??? I will look at it again and see what I can find out..
The hifter is about 2 inches too short.
