Thread: Heel/Toe Shifter V-Star 650

  1. #1

    Talking Heel/Toe Shifter V-Star 650

    Is there a "Toe" shifter available to replace the OEM heel/Toe shifter? I must have big feet as I'm always knocking it out of gear which is a dangerous situation. I never use th heel aspect of the OEM shifter anyway.
    I really don't want to cut the heel portion off.

    Can't you just unscrew the rubber covered heel nub from the lever?

    Then it wouldn't shift unintentionally & you could easily restore it when you sell it.

    And it would all be free!

    I would post up the think, but it appears to be down at the moment. It's a good site. I've spent way too money on there back when I had 2 cruisers to farkle.

    I have a 2007 "Silverado" The shifter is a stamped lever and the "Heel/Toe" nubs are welded/riveted on. The lever is secured to the pivot pin by an E-clip/snap ring of sorts.

    I have checked several sites including the one above but what they show does not appear to be for my application. I may just end up modding the OEM shifter.

    Have you looked directly at the kuryakyn website?

    There are TONS of aftermarket parts for the "bigger" Star bikes that are available all over the place. It may just be that parts for the 650s are a little more difficult to track down. But I would assume that there out there somewhere.

    Pick up the standard toe-only shifter from a 650 Custom, swap it out...

    Thanks to all for all of the suggestions. I'll look into the 650 Custom shift arm after the holidays.

    I'll second the shifter from the Custom. Check with your local dealer since they are built on the same chassis.

    Or...before you buy anything, have you tried adjusting the shifter position? There's a double lock-nut set up on the linkage that you can use to pivot the shifter knob up or down.
