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.
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.
I tried these drill holes and all,but my trunk was all ready chaffed and once installed made the trunk lid sit up higher and you could see the chaffing from the side. Now I got to go buy some plugs for the holes. They made the gaps between lid and trunk look terrible.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
