trunk lid cables

Post by seeberluca » Thu Dec 06, 2012 9:22 am



When I got my gl 1500 I found out that the two trunk lid cables were missing. It was not a big problem, but now that I put the rack on the trunk lid, it is to heavy and the two trunk lid cables seem to be very useful to avoid damage to the hinges of the trunk.
Not only the cables are missing but also the four STAY B LID STOPPERS (where to install the cables) . I ordererd all the parts from cyclemax ( still waiting for them) but what I'm not able to find out :?: is where exactly should be fixed the four STAY B LID STOPPERS.
Can anyone post a picture of the inside part of the trunk where the stay b stoppers are screwed ?

Thanks in advance :D

I will have to check mine this weekend. I did relace the cables since one of them were busted when I got the bike. let me look at my shop book, maybe there is also a good pic there.

Looking for other trunk information, and came across this post. Where did you get that trunk storage unit? tried googling "Wing Gear" and nothing helpful.
Where are we going, and what's with this basket?

I'll second that! I bought one of those stretchy net things for the trunk lid, but none of the existing attachment points work for it. It's either stretched too tight to use, or hanging like a bag.

The one in the pic above looks amazing!! A link would be SERIOUSLY appreciated!!

That does look like a good fit and useful... I did a little searching and it may be a "CHOKO CH-590" but I can't find any for sale.

I picked up mine from WingStuff years ago. They also have units that fit in the saddlebag doors. An eBay search turned up a few but they are either listed wrong (fits GL1800) or used.

I got mine from Cyclemax. Wasn’ A bad unit but I didn’t like the pockets made out of webbing.The webbing tends to tear.
