Hopnel Fairing Double Add-A-Pocket For GL1800
ITEM CODE: PG02296

08.26.2009

2 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the US (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these pouches. Truth be told, they're pretty cheesy - without doubt the cheesiest things on my bike - and they interfere with closing the compartment lids, but I got used to it and found them to be useful enough to keep. First thing I did was cut out the zippers with a razor blade - all they do is limit the size of what can go in the pouch, and that matters a lot more to me than cosmetics. Those zippers are In The Way. I keep things in them like iPod & GPS cords, DC-AC inverters, rags, Windex, pen, notebook, tire pressure gauge, camera accessories, "business" cards, garage remote, and anything else I want near at hand without getting off the bike. And I keep a map stuffed underneath the left one. I just wish the attachments weren't so darned ham-fisted. It would honestly be better if they stuck onto the lids with adhesive velcro. You have to need this storage pretty badly to put up with these. I did. Oh, and in heavy rain they get wet inside! So watch what you put in there. The notebook, for example . . .

Handlebar Riser Shims
ITEM CODE: BB52698,   SKU: BB52698

08.26.2009

5 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the US https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these risers, and have used them for 25,000 miles so far. Simply put, these risers are inexpensive and do the job, so why pay more? They are essential for long-legged riders such as myself, because without them the clutch and brake handles contact your thighs at full lock in a low-speed turn, and when that happens you and the bike fall over. This only happens once, because after that you always take your inside foot off the peg in a tight turn. Not a very good technique, the DMV would flunk you. Get these risers, and unless you're REALLY tall that won't happen again. (I like being big, but there are times when I envy you smaller riders!) I must warn you that the installation is absolutely maddening (I have big hands; see above), but that's Honda's fault, not the risers'. The instructions are just barely adequate. Good luck with it. Try to find someone at your local GWRRA chapter to help who's removed the dash panels before. The speakers have to come out of their mounts too, which is easy only if you know how that works (I didn't, but I learned). I lost three screws in the process (they're down inside somewhere, and after a trip to my Honda dealer I replaced 'em), but I got it done. Still five stars, because none of these problems are related to the shims themselves.

Deluxe Luggage Rack Bag w/Rain Cover
ITEM CODE: WSRACKBAG,   SKU: WSRACKBAG

08.26.2009

5 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the US https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with this bag, and it has stood everything that got thrown at it. We used it for jacket liners, rain gear, spare faceshields, 1st aid kit, cable lock, etc, with water bottles in the outer pockets. We stuffed it to the gills, and the zipper never complained. The velcro zipper cover really works to avoid zipper sun damage. Dorky as the attachments may seem when you first get the bag, they do work and I never had to bungie the bag. When my wife was not on the bike, I put the bag on the passenger seat attached to the grab bars, where it sat in perfect security. The rain cover works well on the seat, but when on the rack it cannot be gotten out of its zippered compartment without loosening the bags attachments. Solution: leave the rain cover out but tethered (it has one), and keep it stuffed between the seat and rack when not in use. For a long trip this bag is essential, and it's bigger and cheaper than anything else I found. It fit reasonably well onto my tubular rack (not Kury), and since the Kury rack is slightly larger it should fit that one even better. After 100 days on the road the nylon on top is fading, but so would you be if I dyed you black and left you out there naked for three months! Five stars, don't leave home without it.

3pc Deluxe Luggage Liners w/Reinforced Corners for GL1800, GL1500
ITEM CODE: WSGL183,   SKU: WSGL183

08.26.2009

4 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the US https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these bags. I found the trunk bag to be fairly useless, because a) not everything in my trunk needs to come into the hotel every night, b) when the trunk bag is full you can't get it into and out of the trunk, and c) it makes getting something out of the trunk in a hurry more difficult (just one more darned zipper to deal with). So I left it home, and I'll give it to anyone who wants it. All that said, the side bags are worth their weight in gold. You have to be careful not to pack them too full, because if you do they will NOT fit in the side compartments! Pack loosely, preferably with clothes that can be squished into the necessary shape. Once you learn how to pack them, they go in and out easily, and there's still room for small things like a jacket liner or bike half-cover above and under the taillight cowl in both compartments. On the left side it can even fit with the owner's manual and toolkit strapped in place, but it's better not to. Also remember, the right side compartment is smaller, so whichever of you is smaller (in my case, my wife - by far!), put their bag on the right. All bags are of good quality, fairly heavy nylon with good zippers that have held up for me and my wife for over 120 travel days so far. No complaints whatsoever.

Adjustable Hand Wings for GL1800
ITEM CODE: PG01051

08.26.2009

4 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the US (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these hand wings, and they substantially improve your comfort in cold or wet weather. In nice conditions they reduce fatigue because they reduce wind buffeting on your arms. Ths is further improved if you install the Wing Stuff handlebar risers, because they position your hands exactly in the center of the mirror/hand wing air shadow. The only reason I give them four only stars is that, like the Air Wing lower wings, these are cantilevered from a single mounting screw and it's hard to get that screw tight enough that the hand wings won't move at speed. If you retorque them occasionally they'll live through 100+ mph without complaint, but then you won't be able to rotate them for more air while you ride! You have to choose one or the other. Overall, an excellent product that makes a real difference.

Dual Adjustable Air Wings for GL1800
ITEM CODE: PG01048

08.26.2009

4 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile circuit of the US (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these wings. As dorky as they look they do work, and the attachment to the bike is a lot firmer than I expected. The upper wing can be rotated back to bring cool air to your torso at any speed, and the lower wing will do the same for your legs with heated air from the radiator in cold weather - though frankly the latter really only works well at highway speed, when the radiator is hot, the thermostat is open, and air flow is good. The attachments did not loosen at all over 15,000 miles. The only maintenance required was to occasionally loosen and retorque the pivot nuts, because in dust, mud, and rain they get a bit stiff. I gave only four stars because the lower wings are cantilevered from a single pivot mount and are susceptible to damage from your legs (when on highway pegs), from car doors in parking lots, and even from your motorcycle half-cover during removal. Both my lower wings broke off before my trip was over. The good news: replacement are available for $12 through Wing Stuff. Call them for the part numbers.

Mini Arms for Ergo II Highway Footpegs
ITEM CODE: KU4071,   SKU: KU4071

08.26.2009

5 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile circuit of the US (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with Kury Ergo II pegs and these arms. I am 6'6" with 33" inseam, and the longer 4" or 6" arms bend my knees back too much. These are as perfect as pegs can be on a GL, given that the fairing edge digs into your leg and forces a slightly bow-legged posture - but that's not the pegs' fault! Though the instructions say NOT to install the arms rotated to any position below horizontal, I started with mine rotated back and 45 deg down, then went to 90 deg down during my trip. That position gave me much better leg extension and did not cause any ground interference even in fairly hard cornering (sometimes I left the pegs down in corners because they'd touch pavement first, before the arms, and I'd hear them. Of course, if you're a sport-biking knee-dragger you could dig the arms right into the asphalt in this position, to your very great surprise, but if you're a knee-dragger you wouldn't have these pegs on your bike anyway, right?) These arms get five stars. Unless you're pretty darn short, IMO you're gonna wish you had these, so just buy them in a set with the Ergo II package.

Ergo II Highway Pegs for GL1800 Gold Wing
ITEM CODE: KU4056,   SKU: KU4056

08.26.2009

5 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile circuit of the US (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) with these pegs, and I'm very happy. The adjustable joints are all pegged or detented in some way so they cannot slip. There's even an inward extension to the bar mount that rests on the underside of the cylinder head (with plastic feet) so the mount CANNOT slip. Quality is excellent, if you're into cosmetics (I'm not). I ended up getting the stubby arms in addition - this was before you could buy the Ergo II's with the short arms as a package - and I highly recommend them to the even slightly long-legged. I'm 6'6" and my inseam is 33".

Longhorn Offset Adjustable Highway Pegs
ITEM CODE: KU7980,   SKU: KU7980

08.26.2009

1 Star

I bought these and ended up literally throwing them in the trash. The money you save is NOT worth it. The adjustments are pure friction, no pins or detents, and you haven't lived until one of them gives way at 80 mph in the HOV lane of a SoCal freeway. I found I could not torque the 1/2" x 13 bolt enough to keep the right side from slipping (the right side is where the weight of your foot tries to UNdo the bolt). I tried three different types of lock washer without success. I finally went out and bought the Kury Ergo II's instead, and they work fine.

Extra Tall Vented Windshield
ITEM CODE: HO08R80MCA100J,   SKU: HO08R80MCA100J

08.26.2009

5 Stars

I just returned from a 100 day, 15,000 mile tour around the USA (https://www.darnton.ws/~USA_2009_Motorcycle_Tour/) using this windshield. The even taller scratch-resistant GL1800 F4 windshield was not available at the time or I might have bought it, but that's lot more $$. This WS did fine. A Hondaline part, it dropped perfecly into the mount. Installation was straightforward and instructions were clear. I'm 6'6" with a 33" inseam, so I am very tall in the torso. This WS at full extension (5 clicks above the bottom) brought the top of the WS to about 1/2" below my sightline to the horizon, exactly where I wanted it. IMHO you do NOT want to have to look through a windshield with bugs and rain on it. In rain with WS at full extension, most drops go overhead when above 50 mph. In all but the heaviest rain I rode with regular prescription glasses with my faceshield up, no problem. In heat I lowered the WS all the way to increase ventilation. The WS had no problems even at 100+ mph or in 50 mph crosswinds. I was happy with the stock width and would not go wider unless I knew I'd be getting into really cold weather (coldest it got on my trip was 44). If you're REALLY tall you might need another 2" in height and might consider the (scratch-resistant) F4, but barring a need for more height (4" extra rather than 2"), I wouldn't pay the extra $120. Just get this one. I like the tint/blackout where it goes into the fairing. There WILL be scratches there - why allow them to be visible? It also protects the dash from sun. And the OEM vent fit perfectly in the new WS. Anyone want my old stock WS?

Ergo II Highway Pegs for GL1800 Gold Wing
ITEM CODE: KU4056,   SKU: KU4056

03.31.2009

4 Stars

These are very sturdy pegs with solid, positive arm and peg rotation adjustment settings, not friction-based set-and-tighten. That's the upside. Downside is the arm can only be set every 45 degrees, which means the only positions below horizontal are -45 and -90 degrees, both unsafe when cornering. A slight downward tilt, like 22.5 degrees, would be great, but is not available. For those with long legs, the pegs are too close and too high, which means you must buy item KU4071, the mini-arms for Ergo II, another $50. Do it, it's worth it. BTW if you're considering item KU4071, the short pegs with friction setting -- which would save you $90 over the Ergo II + mini-arms -- don't bother. The right side peg slips under even mild foot pressure unless you use split lock washers and have it torqued down by a real gorilla. I'm 6'6", 335 lbs, and it took all my strength with a 15" breaker bar, plus Loctite, to get the 1/2" x 13 pivot bolt to stay put. Almost stripped the threads. And after all that, their location forces the fairing edge deep into your lower leg. I literally threw mine in the trash after 6 months of dissatisfaction. Get the Ergo II's instead. You'll be glad you did.

Footpegs w/Adjustable 1" Clamp
ITEM CODE: KU7976,   SKU: KU7976

03.31.2009

1 Star

These are cheaper than Kuryakyn, but they aren't worth owning. I just switched after six months of exasperation with these. They stay in place only through friction, and the right-side peg will loosen and drop down under foot pressure. This happened to me at 80 mph in the HOV lane of the I-405 in SoCal and about gave me heart failure. I went home, changed the crown washers to split washers, and retorqued the 1/2" x 13 peg bolts with a socket and breaker bar to the point of thread distortion -- and still had doubts. Even if you have long legs and require short peg arms, buy the more expensive Kurys and pony up the extra $47 for their short arms. Their positive pinned joints are far superior. The peace of mind is worth it.
