I purchased the buggy bumpers but besides shutting very hard,, My trunk open lights keep coming on,, any one know how to adjust it so the trunk open lights go off?

I have installed several of these boards , they can be very sturdy , you must check the fasteners all the time or you may loose the platforms or use a mild locking agent on the bolts when you go to perform the install , so you might want to position the boards to your liking before doing the final tightening. Speaking of tightening , Kuryakyn has slowly been improving the threading / plating process but I see about half of these boards with poorly threaded holes especially on the 3/8" and 1/2 " fasteners so they give you a tube of anti-seize compound to prevent stripping of the poorley threaded holes that aren't properly cleaned out after the plating process , so you have the largest mounts using anti-seize and this is where is see these boards come loose when a Goldwing comes in for service , I think Kuryakyn needs to address this long term problem with the threads on many of their products, so a clean torque can be achieved in my opinion.
I absolutely love these lights. They add so much more light at night and make me much more visible at all times.
Installation was a bit tricky - I was able to snake cabling up through the fairing simply enough on one side, while the other side was a royal pain in the the a$$. My hands are of average size and I just could not get the wiring to where it needed to be. I should also mention that the lights were very slightly off when it came to matching up to the fairing holes, but not enough to really matter. It's just something that only I know about and is really not visible. It could even be due to my own inability to properly align things. Adding into existing connections was a snap - no worries there. Everything worked as it should. Switch provided looks to almost be OEM on my 2016 Wing.
This is a DEFINITE must have item. You will be happy you bought them.
Other than the simplicity to remove the backrest, its a bad design and poor quality. The bars get in the way of the legs of a passenger, The lock mechanism needs to be tweaked once in awhile, rust is starting to show through. When folded forward, the arms grab the seat.
Once on, I think this item looks pretty good. However, the included adhesive strip did not stick very well. Even after a very thorough cleaning with degreaser and alcohol. I had to add additional adhesive in order for it to bond. 5 stars for looks, 1 star for adhesion.
I ALSO HAVE THE IDENTICAL PROBLEM WITH THE BLU<>HUB AND WITH THE BT-03 HEADSETS!! IF I KNEW THE BLU<>HUB DID NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED; I TOO, WOULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED THESE UNITS UNTIL J&M HAD PERFECTED THEM!! HOPEFULLY ALL PROBLEMS WILL BE ADDRESSED AND TAKEN CARE OF, FINALLY, IN A TIMELY MANNER!!
Fog lights work well, very bright.
Installation is a little challenging, but not terrible; worst part isolated to F6B and Valkyrie owners.
1. F6B owners - beware that you will need to splice into factory wiring at mirrors to get running and turn signals to work. I recommend using an adapter that goes between the Honda factory connectors so you are tapping into wires that are not directly part of the bike's wiring. For example, the Kuryakan 7301 adapter.
I feel Big Bike Parts should provide an easier way to install these wires to the F6B. the way they do for the full Wing.
2. I have to call Big Bike Parts because my left signal flashes the Tridium driving lights, not the amber lights, when signaling. Right side works the way it is supposed to. Wiring has been double-checked.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
