Leolarry, in my estimation it really depends on the bike, shifter angle, type of floor board or foot peg, how your foot fits the toe only shifter...

I have a heel/toe shifter on some of my Harley's & just love that set up on those bikes withthe flat foot boards& a heel angle that will work good with a heel shifter.. Now on my GoldWing, Inever could get the correct angle with a foot peg & had to remove the foot boards as I couldn't keep from dragging them in the corners..

About all you can do is try a heel/toe shifter & see if it fits your needs.
