driver floor board and heel toe shifter

Post by steppin stone »



Hello, I bought a set of markland floor board's with heel toe shifter's from ebay. I was wondering if anyone has a set of these on their bike. If someone does do you know if the engine crash bar's need to be removed or do they just apply over them? and if anyone has any photo's of them installed would be great. The guy I bought them from said that all the bolt's need to install are on the bike . I did notice that I need to make spacers on some bolt's is this common?

That part goes on the other side by the brake pedal.

Heal rest for right side, to rest the heal on as you modulate pressure on brake pedal.

Thanks, ksigurdsen and CrystalPistol I was trying to put it on the shifter side as I thought that's where it went. Thank's for clarifying it , I also purchased a heel toe shifter for the brake so assume I will not be needing that bracket correct.

Hopefully this weekend I will be able to get them floor board's on as the weather is suppose to be nice. Do ether of you know if I have to take the crash bar's off to install them,then reattach the bar's?

I didn't remove them when I removed my 1200's floor boards and that H&T shifter when I found some oem pegs & brake lever way back …. seems to me I did have to remove a bracket on each side hanging from cyl head or exh bolt though.

I don't recall seeing a H&T brake lever? Seems to me it would hinder one's ability to modulate pressure? But being a fixed heal rest, if you do use a H&T brake setup, no need for two places to put one heel.

I modded my trike's FBs to add a fixed heel rest on both sides and use them when shifting or braking with toe portion doing the task, the respective heel on the rest.

Good luck.
