Heel toe shifter

Postby toanogreen » Fri May 31, 2013 12:32 pm



I just helped a buddy of mine add Markland heel toe shifter and driver's floorboards to his 89 Goldwing. Not too difficult of a job, just a few adjustments needed to get in on. My question is, do you have to replace the brake pedal or can you keep the original equipment pedal. I have a 99 and the OEM pedal was changed out with my set. The set he got did not come with the pedal (it was used). Should it make a difference?

Your stock brake pedal should be fine. That's what mine has had for atleast the last 10 years. Are you adding floorboards? You may have to adjust the angle of the brake pedal a bit.

Ride Safe,

Thanks. And yes we are adding floorboards. My buddy did see that the disks pads were about gone, so he is replacing everything an will adjust accordingly.

I have a 93SE with the same set up as you and the stock brake peddal would not work on mine. The stock pedal was too close to the board to be used right. That is mine though. I have found that AT TIMES the SE seems to be a tad different in some areas.

This heel toe shifter set did come off of a 93 SE. The guy didn't mention if he had a problem with his brake. He had just bought the bike and just wanted regular pegs. I will try to find out what he had.

We didn't have the instructions. We just looked at mine and figured out what went where. Most of the small nuts and washers were already together. It really didn't take that long to setup. You may find directions on their ( or somebody's) website.
