The rotating arms have adjustments for height, width and pivot tension to provide maximum passenger comfort. They attach to hidden sturdy steel mounting plates and fit directly behind the passenger backrest. They include a cup holder mounting bracket and fit ALL GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycles. Cup seen in photos is NOT included.
I'm rating these a 3.5, and here is why. Installation is a 5, very simple to install. Quality is a 2.5, appearance is a 5. The angles to the curve of the corner weren't quit right, had to bend them a little more to fit the corner properly. Right side arm rest angle is not square, tilts inward towards the passenger, another quality issue. Rico could pay attention to there forming issues, as for the price they should be perfect!!
Otherwise they look great on the bike, and I like the fact you can open the trunk without flipping them out to the side.
I purchased these because I thought the wife would really like them. NOT!! She is short and they ended up too high for her. The back rest looked terrible & since it is an Ultra seat, I was not happy. Then the worst happened, I dropped the bike and she was unable to properly dismount. Bent the left one in a U. Surprised that this did not damage the plastic where mounted. At any rate, there is now duck tape covering the mounting holes and $300 bucks down the drain. Want a pair of these very cheap? Drop me an email. There is very little adjustability also, but they do look great on the bike.
I have had these for about 2 years. and had to take them off the bike because the extra weight of the armrest keeps breaking the plastic rear speaker bottoms where they bolt to the trunk hinges. I am on my third set of speaker covers because when you open the trunk the weight of the arm reset hyper extends the hinges and the bolt holes for the hinges are very fragile and get pulled apart. Wish it wasn't so. Wife loved them.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
