_Wilson_ That's slick! @Sunapeelakers has something close, although .... I have yet to find ANY information on it.

Goober I like how you modified it to fit without making it too much longer or bigger. I see some mods that could get too much leverage on that shifter shaft with higher risk metal fatigue

Jeepwm69 Pretty cool. My father in law's Arctic Cat 300 (rebadged King Quad) has a heel shifter like that on it.

Foot Shifter Modification

I have an '02 Rancher with a foot shifter. I use the machine for plowing snow, among many other things, and I am constantly driving back and forth and doing a lot of shifting. My big size 17 shoe has a hard time with the funky little shifter pedal. especially upshifting. I solved the problem by adding a heel pedal for upshifting and enlarging the pedal sizes (see the attached photos). I took another shifter arm I had and heated it and bent it to be the reverse of the original shifter. You could also use 3/16 flat stock and cut and bed it to shape.I then welded it to the original and re-installed. I had to cut some of the plastic away so it wouldn't hit. I also added a larger pedal to the foot brake. As you can see, this is a well used machine. It has sat outside uncovered in the snow and rain for the last 17 years and has given me countless hours of use. If that's not a testament to Honda's durability I don't know what is
