I will. Matter of fact, they will be made of billet, and will be able to produce some of these for sale.

Heel toe shift works fine without floor boards. I don't have one on my Sporty, but I've had on previous bikes that just had footpegs.

I'd love to have one. I keep wearing a hole in the top of boots from shifting.

If you are running forwards like a custom ... you can pretty much make a heel/toe shifter by moving your current parts around 180 degrees.

All Customs basically already have what you need to cheaply fabricate your own. Check out this post from Zoharo on the XL forum.

2009 HD XL 1200 Custom
Shift Lever Assembly Modification

by Zoharo
Shown (fig.1) are the Forward Controls - Shift Side, Shift Lever Assembly with after-market addons of
Foot Rest and Shifter Peg available from Harley-Davidson Dealership.

Click the image to open in full size.

(fig. 1) Below (fig. 2) the Shifter Rod Assembly has been removed from the Shift Lever Assembly and
the Shift Lever.

Click the image to open in full size.

(fig. 2) The Shift Lever Assembly (fig. 3) has been rotated clockwise 180 degrees.
Click the image to open in full size.

(fig. 3) In figure 4 the Pinch Screw was removed from the Shift Lever.
The Shift lever has been pulled and rotated clockwise 150 degrees (30 degrees left of top center).
The Shifter Rod Assembly was adjusted leaving 5/8" of threads exposed at each end.

Click the image to open in full size.

(fig. 4)

Pinch Screw was inserted in Shift Lever and Shift Rod Assembly bolted (loosely) to the Shift Lever.
The custom Shift Peg is replaced with the original stock Shift Peg.
The custom Shift Peg has been placed on the original shifter arm using a 5/16x3x18 Allen Bolt
threaded through the Shifter Rod and Shifter Lever Assembly.
By loosening the nuts on the Shifter Rod Assembly and removing the bolt into the Shift Lever,
the linkage and level of pegs can be adjusted to suit the rider.
Tighten all bolts and nuts to complete. - Zoharo - 2/5/2009
Addendum:
Below is a photo (fig. 5) of recent changes (2/14/09) to the Sportster foot shifter (Heel/Toe).

Click the image to open in full size.
(fig. 5)
In my search, it was shown to me in the parts department at the local dealership, all Harley
Shifter Connecting Rods are 5/16 - 24 thread. It was also made known, customers do not always
keep their old parts when upgrading. Hence, I found a longer rod was available from old parts
(generally sold by a dealer on EBay).

As I am using my existing Heim Junctions, the dealer GAVE me the longer connecting rod
(saving me $85.00 for a complete rod assembly). The Heim Junctions on the Sportster are not as deep
as thread lengths on other models, therefore I cut off a 1/2" from each end of an 11" rod to
accommodate my placement of the foot shifter.

Years ago my very first bike "60's 305 Honda Dream" had a heel/toe shifter with pegs.
Talk about an underpowered tank!!
I do not remember having any accidental shift problems.
Brings back both good & bad bike memories.

Problem is they don't seem to make them for mid level controls. Or are there?
