Heel/toe shifter problem '07 Street Glide

A friends Street Glide has an issue with the toe shifter. This is the second time it's come "loose" (Saturday night), 1st time it was remedied by somebody torqueing down to the max with the allen key. This time I did a field expedient repair involving a small box wrench and cable ties - I made a splint basically to the heel shifter.

OK, she didn't ride the bike in and we're looking at EBay etc. It would seem to me that the teeth in the shift lever are gone and that it's a simple matter of removing the levers and replacing with new ones. Somebody said something about perhaps having to remove a "primary"?

Any insight is appreciated, I'm not at all knowledgeable about Harleys, and she insists on continuing to ride the bike, she probably put 50 miles on it yesterday!

You're correct.... the splines on the shifter are softer than the splinded shaft(would be easy to look at). I'm pretty sure it's a two piece ( 1 toe; 1 heel ). And when putting on the new one(s) be sure you have the right spacers so they meet up with the splines correctly. You can push them on to far if the spacers aren't there(which for some reason they get left off when peps work on them.

Thanks fellas, it is a two piece and it seemed logical that the shifter would be softer and that the shaft could just stay put - but I have been wrong before...

She was talking to somebody at the dealership, I'm guessing something got lost in the translation.

I recommend everyone carry a few heavy duty cable ties, whatever they ride!
