    Mine went out at 15k miles… it’s a notorious poor engineering issue. Harley needs buck up and fix it, with larger/deeper teeth on the shaft. In fact, a machinist could make a nice income making the solution.

    I was 400 miles from home when mine did that. I did this. Heel shifters are good for more than shifting with your heel.

    Happened to my friend last week while we were heading for a ride. Fortunately only a couple miles out of town.

    Happened to me going up Beartooth Pass coming home from Sturgis in 2015. My bike was a 2014 Streetglide. My 2018 Streetglide Special shift linkage seems beefier.

    OK it’s your bike…so every 30 days do a bolt and nut check tighten them all up axles & check every thing and check tires & air pressure’s and lights it’s part of owning a bike.

    It happened to me on 14 street Glide back in June just getting off work

    It is a common thing. The material of the shaft is soft and the lever is hardened. How else will they make more money.

    Yep it happens

    The HD of Gillette Wyo owner told me those levers etc is part of service to be periodically performed under ‘tightening of critical fasteners’. I need to to do mine.
