Thats good info. I could never get used to using mine ,on any of my bikes.
I wonder if you could put the rear shifter up front. Reverse the pedal part. If thats the case I would throw the rear in the saddle bag. That way I would have a back up?

front and rear shifters are the same part .I took em both off and compared.I used the kuryakyn spacer and moved the front one outboard.

Yup, same part front & rear. Alot of folks don't like the rear shifter. Personally, it's all I use for up-shifts.
Those bolts are tight! I used a 3/8 drive allen gizmo & a 1/2 drive adaptor on a 1/2" ratchet. That did it. I was on a mission as the front lever was completely stripped. It was coming off one way or the other.
