Heel & toe shift lever
« on: August 12, 2007, 12:16:30 PM »
Page 98 of the parts manual shows Item 2 as a (Shift) Lever, Heel & Toe (Part # 521136/A). My bike came with a toe lever only.

Does anyone have the heel and toe lever? What are the advantages/disadvantages of the heel and toe versus toe only?

I would like  a heel and toe shifter, as my other often ridden rig, the Ural comes with one.  The advantage to me is same action for same result.  The advantage to others is less obvious - it makes a larger shift lever, and allows the rider with softer shoes on to change by pressing with the heel rather than lifting with the toe.

Prior to this moment, I was one of those who had no idea what the advantage is. Thanks.
