Heel-Toe Shifter?

Hey Y'all,

I'm a teacher and I plan on using my bike to commute to work. I would like to be able to save my shoes from damage so does anyone make a heel-toe shifter for our bikes? If so, will I need a larger floor board for my bike?

I've asked you several times to put your threads under a more proper fitting forum heading. This question should have been put in the Transmission page or the Equipment page.

His question isn't about the transmission and it isn't really about equipment which I would say is stuff you hang off yourself or your bike. This is a perfect place for his question IMHO. I have issues with the Raiders however

Actually a heal/toe shifter would be considered "aftermarket equipment" and is a much better fit under "Equipmemt" than "General Discussion" ....which specficlly states its for stuff that "isn't specific to one of the other forums".

And as its part of the system that changes the gears, it's technically part of the transmission...so it could have been placed there. My point here is you can argue on the concept of how "specific" something might be, but common sence points to other headings simply as a "better fit".....and the OP has been guilty of not at least trying for that better fit for his posts.

And I am guessing you have no problems with my avatar?

Who cares. Maybe we can try and help the guy...

Heal toe shifter will not save your shoes much bro.

If you want a heal shifter look online. My bike has one it's an 800 drifter. But I hardly use it. Only use it to find n when stopped

^ LOL!!!!! Nice Merc!

I don't see any heel-toe shifters for the VN750 online. What I do see are several extra shift levers for sale. If you can tack weld (or any other kind), it would be easy enough to flip one over and tack it going in the opposite direction of the shifter you have now. Voila, heel-toe shifter for a VN750...

Appreciate the help Merc, Slim, and Liberty.

I wanted to post it under a specific forum. I was tempted to put it under safety, but I don't know too much about motorcycles yet so I decided to post it under general.

I apologize for the hurt feelings.
