trunk differences

Postby urbanmadness » Tue Dec 08, 2015 3:26 pm



Hello,

Quick question on the 1500 gl trunks. Were they the same year to year?

I have an '89, but the top of the trunk is cracked and broken up where the PO must of put something heavy on the rack. I could probably repair it, but it is in bad shape and I would like to replace it. I just need the lid. Will the Lid work from another year or do I need to find an early 1500 lid? Should I just replace the whole trunk? Would a Valkyrie trunk fit?

I'm not worried about color at this point, as I WILL be repainting the bike.

You should be able to use the lid from an 88-92.

Can I use a later truck if I switch the whole thing out?

Now you're getting in over my head.
I looked at the Honda Part numbers and they were the same for the early years.
Whether the mounting holes and wiring harnesses are the same after that, I couldn't tell you.
