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!
