Heel/toe shift

Post by kboaz2001 » Tue May 05, 2015 2:00 pm



I just purchased a 2001 Goldwing with an aftermarket heel/toe shift installed. The heel/toe shift is really loose at the pivot, and I think that it is affecting my shifting.

The pivot is a chrome, dome with two holes on opposite sides of the dome. I have tried to tighten, and loosen it using the two holes, but to no avail. (I could not figure out how to post a picture.)

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Yeah, take it and the floorboard off and go back to the stock shifter and foot pegs.

I figured it out, thank you. You have to remove the whole foot rest and shifter assembly by removing the two Allen head screws right above it.
