Heel toe shifter

Post by Jphaebig »

So I have a 1987 honda goldwing aspencade 1200. I have found a set of floor boards that will fit it on ebay. My question is if I get these will I have to also get a heel/toe shifter or can I use the factory toe shifter? I can not seem so see a clear picture if there would be room enough to still use the factory one or not.

When I removed my floor boards, it used the factory toe shifter. There was a heal/toe shifter that slid over the OEM shifter. A little sloppy in my opinion but to each his own.

driver running boards and no heel toe shifter if you have big feet or big boots
will make shifting not easy but not impossible, my bike had markland boards on it
when i got it and i got a heel toe shifter, it is kind of clumsy but easier than without it.
