Searched all over the Internet and the forums for a compatible heel toe shifter floorboard system for the new GoldWings and can't find anything... I called Rivco and they have no plans to make one so are we SOL for this "upgrade"? I really don't like up shifting with my toes...

Installed it. I like it better than the stock shifter, but the rear up shift pad is too small. Kuryakin should have made it twice as big. Having trouble finding it by feel when up shifting. Hopefully I will get used to it, but after a day riding I found the only way to feel it, is to keep the back of my heel against it while riding otherwise I mis-shift occasionally. It also took me about 3 uninstall/re-installs to get it where I wanted it.. It only takes about 10 minutes once you've done it a few times. The shift linkage can only be adjusted with the shifter off.

Yes. These work great. Lmk if you want pics

Thank you so much! Yes, I would love to see pics. I am concerned, as I have a manual 6 spd, and wanted to be sure there was enough room for my foot. I just sold my HD CVO, and have had heel toe forever...hoping this works well

I put these highway pegs too which are great. They match the boards and mount under the engine. Some of the other ones mount in the middle of the engine cover which look like crap to me.
