Lithium High Amp Battery for Gold Wing
ITEM CODE: PG32651

07.02.2014

Perfect Fit, Light as a Feather

The LFX36L3BS12 Lithium High Amp Battery installed easily into the existing Honda Gold Wing battery compartment without any included foam inserts. The Lithium battery is 20% of the weight of the GEL battery it replaced.

I attached my existing Battery Tender Plus and it only took 5 minutes for it to show that the Lithium battery was completely charged. The Lithium battery terminals provided more than adequate space for all my cables.

The Gold Wing immediately cranked and started. I will be anxious to see how this battery performs over the years, since their are a few months of the year when I cannot ride because of the snow and ice.

Premium AGM Sealed Westco High Amp Battery for GL1800 GL1800 Premium AGM Battery
ITEM CODE: WEWCP20L,   SKU: WEWCP20L

Three Years, Needs Replaced.

Well, I'm back on the market for another battery for my GL1800. I purchased this exact battery on 5/2010, faithfully maintained it using a 12V battery tender after each ride when stored in my garage. Now it is barely reading a 40% crank charge on my battery bug (advanced CrankCheck technology tests battery health every time the engine is started). I was hoping to make the 5 year club like many others have reported using their battery, but I cannot take a chance that it will not be able to start my cycle when I'm on a trip.

For the price, I was expecting several more years of service, especially with my frequent use of a battery tender after each ride. I guess it's time to step up to a Lithium model.

The SVR ships with a good charge, and fits comfortably into the OEM Yusa battery slot. The SVR positive and negative poles do not line up exactly with the provided Wing cables and screws unless you really apply some pressure to line them up. Take your time, otherwise you might knurl the threads.

The SVR + and - poles have two screw bolt attachment areas allowing me to separate the OEM cables for the Wing and the accessories. I will not need a separate fuse panel.

Black Ride Off Center Stand for GL1800
ITEM CODE: CJ1800BL,   SKU: CJ1800BL

05.31.2010

5 Stars

Wow...After about 2 hours to install on my 2008, this is definitely worth the cost. The Wing hops up on the center stand using reverse and with ease. You can even manually use the center stand and the effort to lift the bike is 90% less than the OEM center stand. To dismount off of the Ride-Off, simply engage 1st gear and drive off. No longer does one have to grunt and grown to lift the Wing onto the OEM stand. This Ride-Off was a great addition to my favorite accessories, why did I wait so long to get it.

Issues: Removing the old OEM center stand is a chore that I had not planned. The OEM center stand is held in place with blue loctite on both a allen bolt and a 14mm regular hex bolt. The allen bolt did not fit the OEM allen key provided by Honda but I had one that fit it. Both bolts take 500 1/4 turns to remove it because of the tight clearance. The bolts need to be pried off with strong force and ample liquid penetrate. The spring can be easily removed by sticking nickel coins between the expanded coils to make re-installation a breeze.

This should have been my 1st purchase.

I bought the Pakit Rak luggage rak system and a Bushtec V2 hitch at the same time. This combination makes for the perfect GW luggage and cooler carrier system. With a full hitch, you do not have to worry about weight limits of the items in your bag, and the Pakit Rak rides on a very low center of gravity. I do not notice it is even there when riding in strong winds.

The GW license plate shows through when the Pakit is in place and the rain cover provides great protection. The bag is very durable, has many compartments and will last for many years to come.

The only cons are the Pakit hitch mount is smaller than usual and does not have a lock. When going over speed bumps, it may scrape the bottom of the tray, and mounting the luggage using the bar requires you to get on your knees (unless the wife does it).

I highly recommend the Pakit Rak for anyone traveling weeks at a time. It will releive the weight in the OEM luggage compartments or using the trunk luggage rack for heavy items and risk cracking. Now when I retire, I can purchase that trailer and take a trip for 6 months!

Adjustable Hand Wings for GL1800
ITEM CODE: PG01051

08.28.2009

4 Stars

This is an accessory that should have been included on the GL18000 from the start. The difference it makes from the wind defection is signficant for the driver and passenger. I give it 4 stars from the weak means in which you can adjust the position of the defectors, it is a friction bolt, and as we know, over times, losens and then you must have a wrench to tighen it up again. I wish it was re-engineered to have pre-selected position notches. Install time 30 mins!

LED Clear Lense Trunk Spoiler Run/Brake/Flashing
ITEM CODE: PG20043

5 Stars

Perfect accessory for that GL1800 spoiler. I added this before I installed the spoiler which made it simple. The product comes safely shipped in a clear plastic tube and the Plug N Play wiring is easy as 1-2-3. Highly recommend this and being a novice installer, it is a confidence builder! Install time, 30 mins!

Outstanding manufactured hitch, more expensive than most other alternatives at Wingstuff. But for securely pulling a MC trailer that costs thousands of dollars or a Pakit(tm) rack system, this is the hitch for you. Knowing that this is tightly manufactured to the exact specifications of the GL1800 frame assured me that I would not have to muscle it into place, like the other lower cost hitches I considered with reviews. The only issue I had was the GL18000 mount on the right side of the bike being so narrow that you have to work hard to tighten the bolt with special effort. Swing the muffler out of place as they suggest on this side, the left side has plenty of space. Install time for a novice going slowly to make sure this was installed correctly, 3 hours.

Factory OEM LED Lighted Trunk Spoiler for GL1800 1st Gen
ITEM CODE: PG00029

5 Stars

Easy to install if you feel comfortable drilling holes in your trunk and can follow written instuctions. Remember to measure twice, drill once using a small drill size and increasing with a larger drill size! I swapped out the OEM LED's on the bar for the switched LED lights that provide additional brillance when using your turn signals. Do this at the same time you order or you will have to remove the spolier. Install time as about 1 hour. High recommend for that outstanding look!

Kuryakyn Chrome Floorboards w/Heel Shifter
ITEM CODE: KU4038,   SKU: KU4038

4 Stars

After using these floorboards for 6 months, the back shifter position is too low for my comfort. I arch my heel to shift.

I give this accessory 4 stars, the install was very easy, the custom look is great and when not shifting in traffic, the floor boards are extremely comfortable. I will keep them, but I wanted to share.

If anyone knows how to elevate the back shifter so I don't have to work hard to shift, please let me know.

Kuryakyn Chrome Floorboards w/Heel Shifter
ITEM CODE: KU4038,   SKU: KU4038

11.10.2008

5 Stars

Installation of the boards was 90 minutes. This was primarily because I used extra caution when removing the brake lever as to not have the rod slip into the housing as others had learned the hard way.

Using the back shifter is taking a little time to adjust for me as the heel position is back from my normal flat foot position.

After installation, there is no opportunity to slip you front toe under the shifter as in the OEM position. But I wanted comfort and chrome for the long rides.

I will give it some time as I believe that these floorboards will turn out to be a great purchase.

Took about 30 minutes to istall but easy to do. After install, it still requires me to lift up the floorboards to activate it. Looks great and has a wider area at bottom for stability
