Ok, so, its hard for me to use the heel part of the shifter with the Harley boots. With the boots I have to actually lift up my leg to get my boot heel up high enough where I can shift with the heel shifter.

Is there a solution to this?

I love mine. I don't mind lifting my boot. Some people don't like it. You can use the toe lever exclusively or remove the heel lever altogether, if you'd like.

Sounds like you need practice, or adjust the lever.

^^^^^ This. If you do adjust it, don't go too low, you don't want it hitting your floor board.
Best advice I got was from Chief when I was getting use to mine.."just kick that fat [email protected]"... worked for me.

Going back to a toe shifter would remind me too much of riding a Honda.

I love the heal shifter. I have size 12 boots and can operate with Harley boots, work boots with no problem. As already stated you could try adjusting the heal shifter down to make it easier for you just don't go to far or you will hit the floor board.

Don't know if ur shifter is standard or not but I have a buddy has huge feet and he installed HD extended shifters, brake lever and foot boards. It separated the toe / heel 2" He loves them. ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1409831280.106849.jpg
