    I found early on, I could not comfortably use the toe for upshifting, and depend on the heel for that. Front foot is going back the other way.

    And SUCCESS --- @DEcosse has near infinite patience -- similar to my lovely spouse -- and the Coil Over Plug mod is COMPLETE - runs great and less filling. And the horn works. A bonus.

    I did not mention the throw away thing. Certainly... don't throw it away. Bring it back or ship it back. We will put it to good use in a new home.

    Tell Warp to send it to you. He did not like it.

    So Paul, do you shift pressing the shifter with your heel or use the toe to push the rear shifter through the gears? Probably you alternate depending on road condition and where your foot is when it's time to shift.

    Almost invariably: Heel 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 (and 6th here I come), and Toe 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 (or more precisely, ball of my boot). I find the riding boots just too stiff to maneuver the ankle enough to alternate above and below the front tab as is done with other bikes.

    I use the ball of the foot to downshift too. Mainly to make sure I have made the gear change. Sometimes i'll use just the toe if I am slowing down to a stop.
