Yes, I will probably make some more. However, I definitely am NOT SETUP to mass produce. I will only take orders on a limited basis, I can't have several stacked up to make. It still takes 10 - 12 hours per unit; I just don't have that much time to do this.
This design will not work on the Mid Controls. The Mid mount controls have a shift lever that mounts directly on the splined shaft coming out of the Transmission housing. There is no connecting rod. If I had a Mid Control bike to study and measure I am sure I could come up with a design.
If anyone wants me to make them one for Forward Controls, PM me and we can discuss price and time to deliver. I will take first come, first serve.

Again, thanks for the appreciation for my work.

I think I have a set of mids that fit my generation bike you could use.

That would help. However for this to work on Mid Controls, you would have to install a lever on the Transmission Shift shaft, much like the one on the forward control setup. Then you would need a short shift rod to reach down to a point on the Heel / Toe shifter. The shifter itself would have to have a means to pivot on the foot rest shaft. I pretty much would have to have the whole bike at my disposal unless someone is willing to take very careful measurements and take a chance on it fitting properly. I could not guarantee proper fit without a bike to test fit it on.

A 2007 (Rubbermount) is different than yopur 2002.

I don't think you would have to go through all that but it would not be an easy task. The mids use a clamp type setup to attach to the transmission. You would have to put the crossbar under the clamp mechanism some way. Given what you have made already, I'd bet you could to it. If you want me to find the part (#36) and send it to you, let me know.

that is very nice you did a great job-rep to you for your ingenuity.
You should make a drawing with dimensions and post them so others can make them.
That is what this forum is all about. Sharing our know how.
I drew it-but I guessed at the dimensions.
You can correct me and I'll change the pic in photobucket

Merc, appreciate the reputation boost.
Nice drawing; and it is pretty close

Okay, if anyone wants to make one for your own use, here are the instructions. KNOCK YOURSELF OUT
However, if this shows up ANYWHERE as a commercial offering I will expect compensation for my efforts and work.

These instructions are valid only for Forward controls on a 2004 – 2009 (2010??) Sportster. The unit I made for Terp84Alum required some modification and redesign due to the different footrest shaft used on the non-rubber mount bikes.
Unfortunately when I converted the drawing to a PDF file, the Templates do not print out true to size. They are close, but will need to be enlarged slightly to be accurate. The Shift Peg Rail is 8 ½ inches end to end. The printed measurements are correct.

Enjoy and Good Luck.

It looks like you could remove the shift peg from the stock shifter and use that hole as an attachment point for a shift rod going to the Shift Peg Rail. The Shift Peg Rail would still need to rotate (Pivot) on the Footrest shaft to work properly; and you would have to find or make a shift rod of appropriate length.

TheDinglepuss: If you want to pursue this, PM me and maybe we can work with Terp84Alum to make you one.

Default Shifter

You guys are way ahead of me! I've been looking at my mids and I think you'd have to put some kind of radius on the heel shifter to clear the gearcase/clutch cover. That and the footpeg and shifter are two different assemblies. Maybe some kind of linkage or extending the clutch shaft out and having the rear shifter go under the footpeg?
The other thing I was thinking is foot position. My knees sit pretty high already and lowering my heel on mids isn't very comfortable. I should just get forward controls!

I think you are right. I also was thinking about Mids, and already being in a somewhat "Crouched" position. Rocking Heel to Toe may not be the easiest thing to do, especially if you are a taller person.

Nice work!! Now instead of all this heal-toe on mids business, maybe come up with a cheap way for us to convert from mids to forwards...Just an idea, but as good a job you did on that heel toe shifter, I am sure you ( or someone else on here) could come up with something..I would try, but I am about as mechanically inclined as a no armed deaf blind guy...no offense to any of you no armed deaf blind people out there intended... Like I said just an idea, and Great work again!!!
