I need help finding part.

Post by 1983GoldwingOwner »



I'm currently getting a safety for my 1983 Goldwing Aspencade and I can't seem to find the bolt that goes from my shifter to the transmission. I believe they call it the connecting rod. Honda says the part is discontinued and it's driving me crazy. Any help would be appreciated!

Also it has a rocker shifter on it. Which I'm not sure is stock.

There is no connecting rod on the GL1100 shifter. I suspect you have an aftermarket heel-toe shifter. Can you post a picture of what you're looking for?

My mechanic jimmy rigged it together so I no longer need the part. However you were kind of right. It was the shifter linkage and it had been replaced by a non oem part. So when that's why I couldn't find same looking part. Thank you for responding right away though. This is my first bike and may struggle with fixing it so you will probably see me again on here. Also does anyone have pics of what an Aspencade looks like with the fairing and saddle bags stripped off of it. I think I might like it better naked.
