I went with the Kewlmetal heel shifter. LOVE it! I chose it because it looked more similar to what I was used to with the VTX1800R.
I rode for about 3 weeks before it arrived. I'm 6'3". It was painful pulling the front of the foot back so often!
A tip for those that go with the Kewlmetal. It comes with threaded Allen head bolts to install from the inside. In order to make room for an Allen wrench, you need to loosen and/or remove a few things, including the foot board. Not hard, but I found this tip from someone else in the forum: Go buy hex head bolts. (A few pennies at ACE Hardware.) You can slide them in rather easily with your fingers and there is plenty of room to put a box wrench on them.
