    You have to remove the bolt to move the pedal on the spline because of the design of the shaft.

    Do you guys know if they sell a shorter heel shifter? It appears as though the heel shifter on my Heritage was designed for someone with a size 12 boot.:s

    I have found that the folding heel shifter greatly alleviates this problem. It gives you much more room and is functional even in the rear position which is where I leave it all the time. It allows you to easily switch from the rear position to the normal position for in-town driving, but I have found that to be unnecessary.

    I solved my rear shifter problem, I took the whole leaver off. I never used it anyway. HD make a nice little cap to cover the bare splines.

    I agree, the rear shifter just seemed to get in the way for me. I like it much better without it.
