    I bought a new shifter linkage that the package says will fit my 2000 fatboy.
    it is adjustable but at the smallest setting it is about 3/4" longer than the factory one. does this sound right?

    Im not 100% positive bout the fatboy but I know that toe shifters are on a spline. After you install the linkage and the toe is not in a comfortable spot for you, pull the bolt that holds it in...slide off the splines...reinstall in a more suitable location.

    i know on my deluxe that the guy who had it before me must of had a size 8 boot, there was no way i was getting my toe underneath hit. pulled the bolt and raised it up a bit. no problem now for my size 13:)
