just fitted it so no idea but it is part depending of how you have the adjustment time will tell but I'm not a corner person (Adelaide hills that is I hate them) but if that was the case kuryakyn would not bring is on the market the company is to big to make s>>t and get a bad name.
I have a few products from them and the quality is out standing.
If interested ring Rollies Speed Shop in Brisbane ( don't forget to mention me Peter from Adelaide so I can have a discount next time hahaha) overall very happy with everything and was only $120 (depending on the dollar)

I use to scrape my floorboards all the time.  I have rear preload cranked up a little and taller Profile rear tyre and I only scrape once per day.  When I use to scrape, it was the rear of the floorboards that scraped.  So, IF you scrape your floorboards now, this shifter will reduce the cornering clearance in my opinion.  Not only that, if the shifter hits the ground just at the right time, it might even down shift.  But like Dutch said, if you don't normally scrape, you might be okay.

Yeah - I don't scrape often at all since increasing the air in my shock.

But yeah you're right, an accidental downshift could in very unlikely circumstances be quite bad. Compression lockup being the worst.

Just from studying the photos provided it looks like the side stand would touch down before that lever. Would need to look from a different angle to be certain, but it does not appear to be in any danger of slamming down hard enough to force the bike to downshift or anything crazy like that. 

Either way it's a beautiful piece and looks way more functional than the Indian oem version. Thanks for sharing.

Well with baby steps because  it really felt weird after the stock Indian lever but seriously what a improvement just that 2 cm to move back is so relax,and i did not scrape at all they really think about this before they put it on the market so i say go for it 😊

Hey Dutch, I have tracking this as it looks great and seems like it would work perfectly.
I am keen to pick one up for when I buy a Springfield in the next two weeks. 
Is it a stretch to ask you for the part number?
Thanks mate.

Thanks Dutch. I have never used a heel shifter before so not real sure of the fitting process. I will send Rollies an email, but are you saying that I need to buy another peg for this one to fit? Is that because the current peg isn't long enough to take this. Sorry about the basic questions.
Thanks mate, John

Hang on, I just had another look.
I think you mean the actual heel peg. I was thinking you meant where it attaches to the OEM gear shift base. 
Aha!  That makes sense. Need to buy a peg as well, or I will be stomping on the lever!! 
Have I got it?
cheers,
john.

Yes John, you've got it.  The rubber bit is from Indian.  Metal bit is from Kuryakyn.

I fitted one to my neighbours Chieftain yesterday, and within half an hour he had scraped it on the road.
Just a chink, not enough to to downshift or anything but I do think with the spirited riding he usually gets up to it could be an issue.

Must be riding hard because it sits higher than the bottom of the motor so the angle must been that much that the floorboards were also sparking on the road I did a few thousand km never had that problem each to his own of course and I'm very happy with it

I suspect the amount of rear shocker preload might play a part in lean angle clearance.

Just went over and had a look, it was the shifter but I adjusted the heel pedal up a bit more and I don't think it will be a prob again. IMG_5175.JPG

I bought the Indian one, have not been unhappy but the KURYAKYN looks to be a better ergonomic design.

The reason I did not like the Indian one is because it limited the real estate on the floorboard. I like to move my feet around a bit on long trips. Maybe my comment was too harsh.

I got a heal shifter from Kuyakyn, USD$69 but doesn't come with the shifter peg.  They wanted USD$59 just for the peg.  Went to MCA Penrith got a peg for $16 but the bolt was Imperial thread instead of metric, got a metric bolt for $2 and now it is on.
Iv'e scrapped it once but I was over a fare way, the running board was also involved. The peg sits well behind the heal so it is hard to accidentally change gear.  Certainly makes gear shifts a lot better.

I've just put one on my Springfield DH.

In the fitting instructions it's clear that one screw that holds it to the shift pivot is to be at the back of a slotted hole. That has the effect of lifting the rear of the shifter so it's less likely to scrape. It's also in the instructions to adjust the shift rod to raise the shifter to a suitable height for the bike.

For the peg I got a button-head Allen bolt and some rubber washers and some SS washers. Cost: the time to look through the shed.
