Now fits both GL1800 1st and 2nd Gen Goldwings. These clear Cubby Hold™ Trunk Dividers install to the side mounting lugs in the trunk with screws provided. Will not interfere with trunk bags or helmet storage.
Mine are just mounted, so I will know more after a season of use.
Things I like:
1. The material is somewhat flexible (it bends enough for it to flex around a bag, etc. without adversely affecting its clarity).
2. It satisfies the reason I purchased these: I often have 4-5 things I access in the truck frequently, and before I had these, I always ended up putting them in my bag on one side or another so I could locate what I was looking for in the dark (by feel). Now I won't have to do that any more.
3. Due to the size of my trunk bag, there is a little extra room on the left and right sides, and this puts that otherwise-wasted space to use.
Things I agree with the other reviewers on:
4. It is correct, it does need a notch in the lower-front corner to get around the antenna ground straps. The nice thing is though that the material is not brittle, so I could easily take a set of sharp flush cutters from my electronics workbench and snip out a notch. Dimensions of the notch: 1/8" high and about 3/4" back from the front, makes it fit nicely without having to "bend around" the antenna ground straps. Alternately (in a re-work of the product design), that whole portion of plastic over the antenna ground straps could probably go away. The good thing is, even with the screws close and a little flexing around the ground strap, the material flexed without fatiguing (becoming weaker) and seemed to secure well under the screw. Time will tell whether it stays that way. If it fatigues, however, given that the material is not brittle, I can just snip out the material over the ground strap. So in the end, I'm getting what I hoped for. (I work with materials regularly, so I probably give the manufacturer more leniency than some might, since I have no problem modifying it to suit my needs.)
5. I have a 2002 GL1800, with chromed side moulding around the trunk (I was not the original owner who put those on) but in this configuration, there is a screw in the middle, and 2 in the front (you can "kind of" see both of the front screws in the picture).
Given that I have no problem re-shaping such material (with electronic flush cutters, it's almost as easy as using scissors on paper), I would purchase this again. I think it's a good deal for the money if you access a small number of things regularly in your trunk and don't like digging through your bag in low (or no) light trying to find them. I'm happy.
I believe Mike on 3/12 said it all. The 3 screws are best and needs to be notched to fit properly. The plastic is very thin and I expect the stuff to crack fairly soon- I do not recommend this product for the price. I had a set in my 1500 years ago and they were sturdy and never cracked after about 70K miles.
Just received this and thought I would give it a try. Installed on a 2010. Instructions said to only remove the two screws that hold in the trim but I found that a third screen also needed to be removed towards the front front of bike. Also the antenna side I didn't like how it overlaid the antenna side so I took a dremel and cut out a notch to fit around the antenna bracket (be sure to round the notch corner to hopefully keep it from breaking). This also allowed the third screw to also be used to secure it. Will see how well it holds up during normal usage. Giving it 4 stars since it would have been nice if it had been initially notched for the antenna mounts (I could see the CB antenna side needing the same modification if so equipped).
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
