That little piece of chrome

Post by offcenter » Fri Sep 23, 2016 1:42 pm



Hey guys, on my '99 GL-1500...
Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for the tiny piece of chrome
that is missing from below my right saddlebag? It covers a screw.
I have a feeling that someone stole it, since the right side piece seems
rather difficult to remove. I doubt it just "fell off".
Thanks guys.

You could most likely order one from your local dealer.
It is mart number 81247-MN5-000 and is called CLIP, MOLDING
List price is $6.05

or

Find someone that parts out Goldwings and see if he/she has one to sell or give you.

I've had to order a couple of them through Cyclemax.
They are also used around the lower saddlebag cover.
I think that they can fall off on their own when you hit a big bump or pothole.
They tend to get sprung a little when you take them off and on a few times.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

Ah HA! Thanks guys!
I'll order from Cyclemax, since I don't have a "local dealer" around here anymore.
And when I put 'em back on, I'll put a dab of silicone seal behind 'em to glue
'em in place.
Thanks again!!

Edit: Ordered two of 'em so I have a spare!

Of course when you have a spare on hand you'll never need it, and 5 years from now we'll see a thread titled "What is this piece of chrome for?" :mrgreen:

Just don't glue 'em on too securely - during various maintenance operations, those pieces need to be removed! I gave mine a tiny squeeze with pliers so they were nice & snug (one had been a tad lose). They go back on with a loud "SNAP!", now.

Yup, I do exactly the same thing. When they get a little loose, I'll snug them up again with pliers. Ever since I started doing that, I've never lost one again.
