1990 Aspencade driver floor boards opinion

Postby 702scottc » Mon Apr 28, 2014 9:34 pm



I'm thinking about purchasing a set of driver floor boards with the heel toe shifter and would like some input from you all before I get them. I've had them on my 1100 for years and they are nice on long rides but do drag a bit hard cornering. These things are spendy so before I drop the cash I'd like some input from you guys who have ridden the 1500 for a while. Be honest, let me know what you think and maybe which ones would be the best. Thanks...

1500 90 to 96 have issues with the 4th gear failing the heel toe shifting might speed up the failure..toe shifting has a lighter touch for most of us, JMHO

I tend to agree. With heel/toe shift people tend to use more force to shift which is hard on the transmission. If you do go heel/toe shift definitely also install the shift shaft stabilizer. That should help with shifting issues.
