HOW TO INSTALL THE MARKLAND FLOOR BOARD AND HEEL TOE SHIFTER

Post by skywatcher67 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:33 pm



Good morning all!

I have a 2000 Honda Goldwing GL 1500 Se Lehman Trike.

Just bought used Markland Floorboard and Heel Toe Shifter.

Two questions:

I was told this will fit my 2000: true or false?

If it will, can someone direct me on how to install them? I have no clue.
I am not sure i even have all the parts for the job.


thanks
Skywatcher

Also I am looking for a lower left side cowl. I was in a wreck and mine got three large cracks.

Thanks again

I think these are the instructions you are looking for. Top of the page click on Manuals for 1500.

Good Luck

Very good advice and the installation sheet is right on.
I would suggest when you are installing the kit to look Carefully at the shifter shaft seal for oil leakage and move the shift shaft side to side to see if it is worn.
And then consider purchasing the shift brace and installing one on your wing.
Pricy.
But you will not regret it.
I installed the new seal and brace on my 1997 GW 1500 SE.
Available here in another tread.
see shift brace.
Good luck, and Merry Christmas day.

I totally agree with the last post - defo install a shifter brace - I took the markland floor boards off my bike !! found them to be sloppy and was causing a oil leak on the shifter oil seal stripped the lot off and went back to a factory standard set up - with a shifter brace - defo 100% better shifting now !! smother changing - also changed out the oil that make a difference to !! .... :D :D :D :D :D :D
