Hi all,

I tried a heel toe shifter and after 20 min, it had to go...... The problem is that the installation called for the lip that keeps the rubber on the shifter to be cut off. Now that the shifter has ben removed, the rubber keeps falling off.

I tried different adhesives and none work and I have now lost the rubber.

Anyone have the part number for the replacement and any idea how to keep it on?

Buy a new shift lever, or put it on with super glue.

I can't believe that no one has pointed out that changing anything on the Goldwing -- especially anything lower than the handlebars -- is dangerous and insulting to the brilliant, all-knowing engineers at Honda.

Hope you find what you need. Sorry I couldn't be helpful.

Ride!

A good way to fix it is to drill and tap for a 6mm or 1/4" flat head screw as close is posible to the center of the shifter post. This can be done in a few minutes while still on the bike. Than get a stainless steel flat head screw at the hardware store and it will look as good as factory.
