Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers fit any year GL1800 Goldwing motorcycle. Rubber Baby Bumpers stop the chaffing on your GL1800 trunk lid. Regains the proper gap between the trunk lid and the trunk body. Eliminates paint damage due to chaffing. Easy to install (full size layout template included). Requires drilling (4) 1/4" diameter holes.
I had these on my 2004 ABS and recently bought these for my 2005 GL1800. Now. the template shows the exact edge spot where you line it up on the trunk. And when you mark the spots you will see the spots are very close to the outside edge of the trunk (you will think 'to close'). Reason is there is a double layer of plastic for connecting the trunk together towards the inside edge. I drilled the holes and then spitted on them (as instructed) and used a small screw driver to push the edge on the outside part of the bumper into the hole. After getting it to start into the hole on the edge I then pulled them down with needle nose pliers (back and forth) and continued to work the small screw driver around the upper outside edge. They then popped in. Yes, the trunk will be tight closing, but my experience with them on my older 2004 bike is after a while they do form in and the trunk becomes easier to close. The instructions will tell you all of this. I definitely think they are well worth it.
Like everyone is saying. Patience putting them in is the key. Front is harder to get in. Opening and closing is different Needs firmer closing and slight downward pressure when opening. You get the feel what it takes to open and close. Haven't had thenm in that long but seems to do what they are supposed to.
bought these a few years ago and finally tried to put them on. The ones at the rear seem to be OK but the ones at the front or hinge side both broke trying to get them in. There are 2 layers of the trunk where they tell you to drill so I could not pull them in far enough for them to sit properly. Even with lube on the rubber when I pulled hard to try to get them seated they broke.
Going to try the hose inserted in the gasket.
These are pretty cool. They solve the problem of the trunk lid hitting and rubbing on the trunk bottom. It keeps the lower section from getting scratched up and looking ugly. Bad part is you have to drill holes in your "baby" but it's pretty easy to install. Took me about 30 minutes total.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
