LED Clear Lense Trunk Spoiler Run/Brake/Flashing
ITEM CODE: PG20043
| This thing is really very cool! Bought it at the same time I purchased the spoiler. Swapping the OEM lights out with these was a piece of cake. Running the wires down to the rear end where you have to make all the connections was NOT a piece of cake, but with a little effort and a couple of choice words I got it all put together.
NOTE: After making the connections test the lights! The instructions tell you to hook up the new connector with the black wire to one of the existing plugs... problem is BOTH new connectors have TWO black wires! If you hook them up incorrectly the wrong turn signal will flash. If that happens just reverse the connections and you are good to go, but figuring that out AFTER you put the bike all back together would truly suck! Test it before you get it all back together!
The lights work great and look awesome! I really like having additional running lights and turn signal lights up high on the trunk making it easier to see. Very pleased with this item!
Extended Throttle Boss for Heated Grips
ITEM CODE: KU6242, SKU: KU6242
| This is a great and inexpensive item that, in my opinion, is a must have! Just installed mine along with the ISO grips and I love it! Had throttle bosses on my other bikes and I can't imagine riding without one! When you get these things adjusted properly the heel of your hand does all the work and you don't get the fatigue associated with squeezing the grips all the time!
And not only are they functional they look great, too! Highly recommended item!
ISO-Grips for use w/OEM Heated Grips for GL1800
ITEM CODE: KU6183, SKU: KU6183
| Just installed these on an '06 and they look great, but they were a sucker to get on! After much manipulation and even more epithets finally got them on.
They are indeed significantly larger than the regular ISO grips which I had on my other bike, but I do like these... especially with the throttle boss! As others have mentioned the heat doesn't transfer as well as the stock grips, but I suppose that's to be expected. They do get warm and I have ridden several days in the last two weeks in temperatures in the 20's and 30's and have been comfortable with just a pair of regular leather gloves.
So far I am quite happy with these grips and I like the way they look on the bike!
Factory OEM LED Lighted Trunk Spoiler for GL1800 1st Gen
ITEM CODE: PG00029
| Okay, this is a pricey little sucker, but OH MAN does it make the back of the bike look good! Got the color matched Cabernet Red for an '06 model.
Installation is straight forward and the template provided in the instructions for drilling was a life saver! You have to drill five BIG holes in your trunk for this baby and the template takes the guesswork out of it and certainly adds to your piece of mind when applying drill bit to plastic!
I swapped the OEM light bar out for the one that functions as a running light, brake light and turn signal. Love the way it looks and very happy to have some additional lighting up higher on the back of the bike!
Like all things Honda the fit and finish are perfect! Love this spoiler!
|Second one of these I have installed. Easy installation and unbelievably handy to have... keeps everything charged and ready to go. Inexpensive solution to the power problem. As far as I can tell works as well as the OEM unit and costs much less! Very happy with this purchase... for the second time!
|This is a nice rack. Just got mine installed, along with a color matched spoiler and it looks great! Quality appears to be good and unlike some others there was no sign of rust in sight. Take your time during the installation and get it lined up properly because once you take a drill bit to the trunk you are pretty much committed! I like the looks of this rack compared to the flat ones... just a personal preference. Very happy with this item.
Ergo II Highway Pegs for GL1800 Gold Wing
ITEM CODE: KU4056, SKU: KU4056
| Sorry to hear about your experience Tigger! I got lucky, I guess. My installation was fairly straight forward, although I will agree the instructions leave MUCH to be desired! Even though these things are adjustable, they are not infinitely adjustable... you pretty much have to find an angle for the arms and hope the ratcheting connector will lock it in somewhere close. With a little trial and error I found a spot that's comfortable and works well.
The pieces appear to be of good quality... sturdy and heavy. We'll see how they hold up over time, but for now I'm happy with them.
Utopia Driver Backrest for GL1800 2001-2017
ITEM CODE: UT18MC12, SKU: UT18MC12
|This is the second bike I've installed one of these on. Love it! Great design and I really like the fact that there are no bars running up the side of the bike from the rear. Even doing this for the second time it's tough to take a knife to the seat, but it's all good in the end. Attaching the bolts from the bottom can be an exercise in frustration! Helps to have a second set of hands to push on the top of the seat. Can't say enough about this backrest! Absolute necessity on those REALLY long rides! My wife likes the pouch attached to the back too. All around one of the absolute best things you can put on the bike!
Master Ground Block
ITEM CODE: EC02207, SKU: EC02207
|Second bike I've put this on. Love it! Beats the heck out of 8 or 10 lugs attached to the negative terminal of your battery! Put mine under the seat and it works great!
Louvered Scuff Side Covers for 2001-2010 GL1800 Gold Wing
ITEM CODE: KU3913, SKU: KU3913
| Had to wait awhile for these to show up, but MAN they look great! An exceptionally easy installation was the icing on the cake. These covers have a flat tab behind the louvers so you can mount some lights if you want to, and that's exactly what I did. The blue LEDs reflect beautifully off the chrome louver panels at night.
These pieces really add sparkle to what was previously a very boring part of the bike. As others have mentioned I like the louver style much better than the chrome piece that mimics the original style.
Buy these... you will not be sorry!
|Super easy installation and plugs right in to the wiring harness. Works great and is a great value for the price! Now I don't run out of tunes because of a dead battery on those REALLY long rides!
USA Pole Flags
ITEM CODE: PG00890
|Bought two of these and so far have about five hundred miles on them at highway speeds and they still look brand new with no signs of fraying at all! Very happy with these flags!
