Its ok. That was one of the first things I put on my new bike and mine is the same way. I have 13,000 + miles with no issue.

Mine is mounted on the inside. Web pic shows it the way you have it. Instructions calls for inside mount on the front. I’m pretty sure either way will work as long as you don’t get it in a bind.

don't know if this is a change for 2019, or if they did it earlier, but having just done this to mine something i noticed is that the shift levers have been redesigned. where before you had a threaded side on the lever and you just tightened the bejeezus out of the bolt, they now have no threads on the lever itself, but a recessed area that fits a nylock nut, to keep it from spinning.

i know that doesn't help you get yours off, but maybe after?

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

The pinch bolts I am able to loosen. It’s the tiny Allen screw in the heel/toe shifter delete end cap preventing me from repositioning the shifter. I’m going to mess with it Saturday. Probably will end up pulling the pinch bolt from the engine side of the shifter arm and sliding the whole thing out so I can put it on a bench and dig in to the stripped Allen screw.

That's a cap to replace the removed lever?

Prolly left hand drill bit time. Put some heat on it with a soldering iron then see if the bit will grab it and back it out.

Or loosen the inner lever and just pull the shaft out of the primary with the foot shift still in place.

Twin Cam the front goes to the outside, M8 it goes to the inside the change was in 2017 when the M8 came out. That is why on the older pics it is to the outside for aftermarket or fancy HD shift linkage.

Thanks for the help, folks. It’s installed (front is on the engine side of the front shift lever). Every time something goes too easy for me, it is either wrong or broke so I’m glad this 10-minute job became a pain in my ass.

To test it, I rode 70 miles and got a cheeseburger from a place that has been owned and operated within the same family for 120 years. So far so good. And in addition to looking prettier, shifts are firmer now; finding neutral no longer takes an act of God.
