I have a 2013 Street Glide that I am totally in love with!

However, while I like and use the heel shifter, its placement directly over the floorboad eats up several usable inches of footspace.

Does anyone make a longer piece for the heel shifter that would place the peg futher back off the end of the floorboard?

And what is that piece called?? I can't even search for it without knowing what it is...."heel shift peg holder thing" just isn't working :)

Thanks!

The extended reach shift arms look like what I need, although just the heel part. If I put an extended reach toe part I wouldn't be able to reach it :)

I know lots of people don't like a heel shifter, but I use mine all the time.

Thanks all!

I'm the same way as the OP. I'd like just the heel part. I'm no spending that much and not need half of it.

Hogcowboy, once I knew what to look for I found that Kuryakyn makes one that you can get singly (works as either toe or heel shifter)....part KY-1026.

Thanks. I'll take a look.

EDIT: Just looked. Doesn't do me any good. I'd have to buy two so they match. They get you one way or the other!

I've had several Harleys and have never used the heel part of the shifter.

I always remove the back part of the shifter and just use the front part ... pretty much like all the other bikes on the planet.

I could never get used to the heel shifter, either .. and it took up too much room for my foot.

But, there are are those that love this feature.

I wear size 14 boots and it doesn"t present a problem to me. How 'bout this? Sometimes when I'm up-shifting I actually just hit the lever itself (not the rubber peg). So -- if you really wanted to be cheeeeaap, you could unscrew the rear shifter peg and get it out of your way and I bet you'd find that you can still upshift without too much trouble. And you would still be able to use the front lever to upshift as a backup. If that setup worked for you, then you could put a bolt in the rear shifter hole and dress it with a chrome bolt-head cover, which would also give you a little something for your heel to catch when shifting. Ingenuity and imagination -- (In other words, find a way to rig things to your liking)

Hey, it's your bike!
