    i had a toe- heal harley clutch with the toe cut off and no holding lock spring if you lost your balance and you where in gear and your foot came off the clutch off you would go. unless you stalled then you have to kick and all your friends will laugh at you. i wish i still had that bike

    This has been covered preaty well in other posts so I will not go into it or post any more pics

    Search my user name for other posts and check out my gallary, I have several pics of my set up. cost was about $10 in parts by reusing and modifing your existing parts and is reversble if you end up not wanting to keep it.

    Default Non-suicide Jockey Shift

    I built a jockey shift kit that has both foot & hand clutch. It's available in polished billet aluminum or black. Having both clutches solves all the problems you normally encounter with only a foot clutch. Panic stops are no problem. I have run mine for thousands of miles & I love it. Fits '86-2003 with forward controls.

    Non-suicide Jockey Shift

    ...seems to me ,with out actually seeing your set up mind you, one of the best/cool things about having a foot clutch is NOT having a hand lever cluttering up your bars. Not sure what the point would be to have both hand and foot, other than making it safer. That, by default, makes it not cool.

    Default non-suicde jockey

    in response to elmiguel 13 yes i understand your point with unclutterd handlebars.i used to run a 48 panhead with jockey shift and quickly figured out why they call it a suicide clutch.old harleys had a really low first gear that you didnt have to slip the clutch much to get underway.modern harleys have a close ratio trans with much higher gearing meaning longer time slipping clutch. panic stops and left turns are much more dangerous with no hand clutch.In operation most people dont notice you have a hand clutch .i use the foot clutch to put in gear grab hand clutch that is allready depressed and release .foot clutch and hand shift from there.added bonus traffic seems to really back off from you.
