Kuryakyn GL1800 Gold Wing Armrest with Built in Drink Holder fit any GL1800 Gold Wing and feature a Hide-Away Passenger Drink Holder that Folds In or Folds Out anytime you need it. Offers passenger much needed comfort as well as adds a nice chrome custom look to your bike.
Look incredible! Had them on for a week and the wife absolutely loves them. Installation was simple and the instructions were very clear with decent pictures. Honda marks the inside of the trunk for the side without the antenna to be drilled out for the CB antenna if needed, so very easy to get both sides level. 5 stars for now I will update if I see any rust.
This junk rusts out every year. I have tried everything to stop the rust with no luck. I complained to Kuryakan with no results. I cannot afford 200 plus dollars a year just to change armrests. Don't waste your money. I have changed them out three times and they still rust. How come the cheap plastic parts still look good and the expensive stuff looks bad?
Like many, it's a must for the wife, and approved by the better half. Good quality build constructions, but when it comes to real quality, only time will tell.
I do have an issue with having to swing the armrests out before going into the trunk. I think they could have designed them better for the newer models, so this would not be an issue (factory built in armrest/speakers hit armrest support bar when you open the trunk).
Not sure if it is due to lack of quality, riding on laurels, or not enough of us have refused to purchase the arm-rest until they re-design... I considered having my Father-in-law cut the swing arm off and re-weld, but then would have to re-chrome!
I would like kuryakyn to redesign the armrest and send me out the new set, but you know that is going to happen!
Don't get me wrong - quality of the kuryakyn product line seems the tops...
I am now on my 3rd (and last) set of these passenger armrests and all have rusted after less than a year.
Look at the weld area on the bottom of the pad and you will see the yelloish tinge where the chrome plate did not throw and all you have is the nickel (or NI-RON) plate -- they will surely rust starting there. I approached Kuraykin's warrenty people at Daytona Bike week and the jerk tried to tell me first that nickel and chrome are the same, then he proceeded to tell me that because I rode in Florida I should expect to replace the chrome annually!
Since, whenever in a bike store, I look at Kuryakin' metal made parts and they all have terrible plating, just a sign of cheap un-caring production.
I will not buy another of their products
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
