I recently changed out the standard rider's foot rest with a heel toe shifter. It seems to be working great and is more comfortable. However, I was told by somebody that knows more than me that the heal toe shifter can cause damage over time to the gear box, etc. I know this matter must have been discussed before, but it is knew me. Whats the truth?

I had heel toe shifter on my GL1200 for over 20 years with NO problems.....

When I bought my 2007 GL1800..4 years ago, I installed the KURY heel toe...ensured the pivot was not too tight or too loose. I keep it lubed.

Have NOT had any issues with it

Just remember NOT to keep your foot on it, when not using it. I have seen badly worn shift forks resulting from either the rider keeping pressure on the shifter or the shifter was overly tightened and kept pressure on the shift forks.

As parts mgr at our dealership...service showed them to me as soon as the engine was torn down,
