would a set of Wingleader Floorboards off of a GL1100 I be modded (easily) to work with a 78 CX500? more importantly what would need to be done to make the Heal Toe shifter work?

I can't answer that, but I've been wondering if they could be modified somehow to fit on my Gl650i.

I don't think you would have so much trouble with the mounting long as you can weld. The problem, I imagine, would be when you try to jimmy rig a system to push our shifter, since our shifters are mounted laterally not longitudinally, although this difference is transparent while we ride, it means we can't really adjust forward-back without bending stuff!



you'd have to use a second lever to move the end of the gearshift selector, with the other end attached to your movement end of the heel-toe shifter, which I imagine would be possible...but difficult..

It moves up and down in an arc or a straight plane?

Wouldn't a slot with bearings lining the upper and lower surface allow the shifter to do it's thing as long as you had the pivot point at the right spot?
