Heres my .Xmodmap:

remove Lock = Caps_Lock
keycode 66 = less greater less greater bar brokenbar bar brokenbar

The greater an less signs are working but the pipe still does not want to. What am I doing wrong here ?

How did you configure the Shift_L, ISO_Group_Shift, and ISO_Level3_Shift keys? Notice that not all layers might be available, setxkbmap is the 'stronger' guy through which layers need to be enabled in the first place. See http://grahamwideman.wikispaces.com/linux+--+keyboard+configuration,+xkb or try setxkbmap lv && xmodmap neo_de.xmodmap && xset -r 51 with http://neo-layout.org/neo_de.xmodmap as a working example which has a lot of layers.
