Gold Wing Chrome Lift Handle allows easy trunk lid opening as well as adding looks to any GL1500 or GL1800 Trunk Lid and is available from Wingstuff.com
My thought is - this was originally designed for a 1500 bike as the trunk lid area where this is to be installed is flat. I had this on my 2004 GL1800 ABS and it was convenient. So I thought I would put one on my newly acquired 2005. However, when I went to test it for install I noticed the base where the screws go in leaves big gaps per each leg. Meaning that the only way this accounts for the gaps is with the rubber grommets. So on one side the grommet will be almost flat and the other side (across) not flat. I am not saying you can't put this on an 1800. It is just I elected not to after seeing how the base of those legs are flat and not formed to shape so as to fit a rounded trunk like the 1800 has. I give it 5 stars because it is handy and I did like it on my 2004.
I got this and it really makes it easyer to lift the trunk expeacllly if you have a bag straped on top. Nice quality and reasonably priced. A little tricky to get ligned up. I made a templet and punched the holes in the center and marked them for a excelent install. Otherwise you might get it off center and once the hole is drilled thats it.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
