Headrope 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.

MCRGS18 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.

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.

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

Until I figure a way to remove that cap I can’t adjust the shift pedal and my shift peg is basically on the floorboard.

Fordmd2 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.

Harley’s bar and shield linkage will end up somewhat at an angle once installed, right? And that angle won’t screw anything up over time?
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.

You can try driving a torx bit into the hex, then backing it out. Some folks like to put red loctite on those pinch bolts, so some heat might help.

The inner lever has a pinch bolt too, so you can pull and put the shift lever and shaft on the bench where it would be easier to work on the wallowed out bolt.
