I have had a problem shifting my 1987 gold wing interstate. After researching it I found that it had a toe shifter that was converted to a toe heel shifter. (I bought it used).
I was having problems shifting into second gear. I removed the toe heel shifter and tried it with just the toe shifter, all ok. Now, to find the problem.. I noticed when I removed the shifting lever. that the rubber boot or cap was missing. I assumed this would make the toe heel shifter slop loose or not make good contact. Not having the cap/boot, I cut out a piece of thick rubber to attach to the shifting lever on the bike. It Worked !!!! You have to cut it to right thickness to accomodate your need. I attached it with rubber contact cement and mechanics wire. I placed in on the top, to cause less wear. ( another new cap/boot would have been too thick). I share this with others may have the same problem...Allan
