  • Heel shifter

    I think the heel shifter after 2003 looks too much like the end of the side stand, i think i will get rid of it.

      Can cut it easily enough or see if someone want to trade a toe only shifter for it.

        Pauli466 as Lug Nut said, maybe someone would be interested in a trade with you. To be honest, I prefer that style heel shifter. I sat on an older R* a dealer had (while I was still tire kicking) and didn't like the old style. I thought it was tough to get my boot into place on the floorboard. Of course had I bought the bike I may have adjusted to it, but it was a concern to me as soon as I sat on the bike.

            I'd only ever used a toe-shifter, so I cut the heel off, and ground it down some to clean things up. It's plenty easy to do.

              Kind of a goofy thread. The earlier shift levers were one piece and many just cut the rear lever off. The newer, two piece does resemble a side stand part so why are folks talking about taking a hacksaw to it?

              If you’re referring to the ‘06, and newer foot shift lever, then just remove bolt #12 and slide it off.

              I did slide it off, maybe i can find something to stick over that ugly spline sticking out a piece of hose should work.
              the bike is new to me and i found myself trying to push the shifter out like a side stand the shifter is exactly where my 650 kick stand was

                A few years back I was lucky to score Yamaha OEM aftermarket single shifter I got one for each of the three Banks they are rare as hen's teeth I cut off one for my buddy brother-in-law. You can get circular saw metal cutting blade for a couple of dollars at home Depot and put it in an old circular saw watch out the Sparks will fly and cause a fire do it in the grass it will of the iron do not let the sparks fly all over your cars or motorcycles unless you want to get a little tiny rust spots all over everything when it rusts.
