Iâ€™ve had them on my bike for about 6000 miles. I had them installed with a brand new set of Avon cobras tires. The tires are severely cupped on one side of the tire. Itâ€™s completly flattened out the tire to the point you can feel it while riding. Going to take them off.
Right off the bat, I have to echo others review about the chrome on these armrests. It does flake off early in life and it not great looking in a very short time. That part is disappointing.
However, as far as the functionality of these armrests, I have to give five stars. I have had these on my GW for about 4 years now. I honestly cannot recall exactly what the installation was like, but I do know that I didn't have any problem installing them myself. It only required removing the passenger backrest. I think you have to drill a couple of holes, but it's not big deal.
But the thing that is GREAT about these armrests is that they fold UP instead of OUT. My wife LOVES them! When they are down, they give her an extra bit of security by holding her to the center of the bike. Other arm rests that swing out do not provide that security. She sat on other GW's that had those types of arm rests and MUCH prefers these.
Yes, they are rather expensive, and yes the chrome job sucks. But the function makes them very much worth it IMHO. If the chrome is that big of an issue, I suppose you could have them re-chromed. To me, they aren't visible enough to worry about that.
Glad I have them and would buy them again.
Installation wise, don't just spray hairspray in the grip covers... also spray the grip itself with a healthy dose and these will just slide right on with a minimum of effort.
My first attempt I only sprayed hairspray in the grip covers and yeah, it wasn't happening. Got about halfway on and they were stuck. Sprayed the grip itself with a ton of hairspray and re-sprayed the inside of the grip covers and it was MUCH easier to slide them all the way on.
As for the covers themselves, they are exactly as described. Nice feel and definitely thicken up the grips some.
Oh... I also found removing the bar-end weights also made installation a lot easier.
I bought these "tires" if you can call them that for my 15 F6B.
They are the worst tires I've ever had on a motorcycle period!
Very squirmy on grooved pavement and always feel like they are low on air, but are not.
I'm going back to stock Bridgestones when these wear out.
While the product is well made. The instructions leave a bit to be desired. There vague as they don't indicate the tools required to install the product. A installed picture would be a helpful addition.
Sent them back without installing them. They are very heavy, I weighed them at 9 pounds. That's 1/10th of the weight Honda cut off of the previous Wing.
Also, IMO only, they are very bulky looking. They cover a large part of the engine cover, and block out most of the "Honda" insignia.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
