Hello Sarge . Yes , that was done the day I brought home my 94SE . I cant stand the boards.

You will need:

left and right operator foot pegs, pivot pin, return spring. (should be readily available on ebay)

 24710-MT2-000  Pedal Gearshift

 24711-MN5-000  Arm gearshift

 

Its been a number of years since I did this . I think the front lower cowling, the header pipe coverback to the muffler need to come off, to install the arm. If your handy with tools and want to try I also think I have removed the Arm without removing all the panels. But it was a bit tricky reaching in remove the ARM pinch bolt.

OK, the part in the center with the offset needs to go thru the lower(exhuast cover) to the shaft coming out of the trans (what it is attached to in the photo). Then you will need the pedal to attach to that.

The part on the left and the short part in the center are internal . The part on the right is the brake pedal shaft . You should not need that. The brake pedal ?  umm not sure if yours will need to change . Mine only had a part bolted to the original pedal to raise the height .

No the brake pedal from the old heel to toe still works and once I put the peg back on it it will be just fine, ok so Ill figure it out from here guess I need to start tearing covers off to figure out how this stuff attaches lol Thanks for the heads up

When I took off the heel toe shifter on mine I did not do anything with the internal parts.  I took a bolt out of the shifter mechanism which clamped it to the shift stub that sticks out the side of the engine and removed another bolt or two which held it to the bike, it was several years ago so I am not absolutely sure how it mounted.  Then it was simply a matter of sliding a new stock shift lever on the stub and it was good to go.  I did not use any of the parts shown in your photo, only a stock shift lever.

 

It is possible you have a different setup than I did but it would seem odd to me that any of the internals would have been swapped out.

Your probably correct Doug. thinking back it is not logical that the heal toe would replace any more than the possibly the toe pedal section. In fact I think some use the original part and the heel/toe engages the stock pedal.

If Sarge could post a photo of whats on his bike might help us understand better.

If your going to replace the oil seal , you might want to consider installing a "shifter brace" available at Cyclemax .com . It is an aftermarket device that helps stabilize that long "dogleg" shaft .

If you mean the wrench size , I believe its 8mm which happens to be just about exzactly the same as 5/16 .  if you mean the the bolt thread size it's 6mmx20mm,1.00 thread pitch
