Hi, I would like to remove the Heel toe shifter and replace it with a one piece toe shifter and was wondering if anyone knows if there were any other Yamaha models that would be a straight swap (plus the linkage) or a close swap with minimum modifications
Thanks for your input :grin:

I'd like to know this, too. I NEVER use the heel shifter, and it keeps me from moving my foot backwards on the board. Might be nice to change leg positions once in a while.

About a week after I got my classic 650 I very carefully cut the heel pad off the shifter with a 4 1/2" angle grinder with a cutting wheel.

a month later I took the shifter off the bike and cut the entire heel lever off completely.

Going to butt in and give my two cents here...once you get used to the heel, you'll never go back. That being said, I am jealous of the heel toe shifter on my buddy's road star. The heel portion is more like a small paddle blade, rather than the long piece that I have on my Royal Star. I have thought about going to that.

You never miss the back end being so small and it leaves plenty of room for your foot.
