I recommend that you find a member that wants to ride your bike. :banana::waving::ROFL:

Awww, guess your not even lookin at me. hehehe
I think your on the right track and the heel/toe shifter may just cures what ails you.

I have loose cartilage in my knee, so the twisting and lifting action can be a problem. My bike came w/ a heal/toe- I love it, problem solved!

Since I did not have to go through the process of locating and installing, that's all the assistance I have to offer, but I'm sure good info is only a few mouse clicks away...

A heal/toe shifter should solve your problem but you have to be gentle when using them . The 1500 gearbox shifts like a tractor especially upshifting low gears.
With a little practise it should be just what the doctor ordered !

I hate mine. I hate floorboards too, but they came with the bike. I'll go back to stock ASAP.



If you were closer i'd swap you over in a heartbeat.

Took me a while, but I learned to love the Heel Toe shifter on my 1500.

It is going to stay for as long as I can straddle her and ride.
