This may be what you are looking for and also what your dealer ordered on your behalf.

Are you referring to the chrome side covers? If so, then here is the parts fiche:



The right side is item #6, Part # 83511-MCA-A60.
The left side is item #9, Part # 83561-MCA-000.

It came be found here.

Why is the left one so much more expensive than the right one? Naturally I needed the left one!

Had the same problem as well with the right side cover. some one borrowed mine. After four months, l was able to score one on e-bay for $80.00. Now the trike has an alarm system and the part is tethered to the bike using a cat collar with quick disconnect . One end is JB welded to the side cover, the other tied to the harness of the trike. That way if it "fell off" during a ride it won't end up road kill and if some one tries to remove it the alarm will scare the poop out of them.Win....Win..

Really... for what they cost I am thinking I need to just carry my cover and lock the whole thing down when I stop..I looked and looked on ebay and never saw one..so I was glad to get the one I did...I also found a set of grommets so when the season starts I will have them tethered better....get all the snow melted and it will be time to ride south dakota:)

Someone was piecing out a 2002( they fit an 04 too) GL1800 on e-bay and had both right and left sides.With nearly 7k parts listed for an 1800 alone, it can be time consuming finding what you want/need but worth the time in the end. My part was ordered from honda headquarters using a critical request and l recently cancelled the order after six months and no part. They took me they had still not released it due to mtg. problems .New grommets are a must with an 04. Tethering both sides is cheap insurance against "loosing" them. When mine came up MIA l thought oh well l will just order a new one, how much can it cost 30-40 bucks. Learned first hand why the little thief took it......................

I had to replace my battery side cover twice and right side cover once . Why you ask? I did not check my rubber grommets. They are listed on the parts list as side covers and i ordered my first battery cover from on line thru Honda Direct and others from where I bought the bike. They are about $250 US dollars each. If you have a trike the little kick panel that attaches to the side cover has to be ordered from whom ever your trike kit is from because the ones listed on the parts list are much longer and will not work at least for Lehman Conversion kit.

SORRY SORRY
This was not was asked but I will leave it in-case anyone needs them. How do you know how I know about the kick panel? Don't ask.

I do have a Left side kick panel for sale.

A full set of Rudy's "Keeper" products would have been a lot cheaper than even one of those panels...and you'll never have to worry about losing one again. :)

Kudos to "Keyboard" for supplying the Honda part number for those left and right Goldwing chrome side covers! I have a 2007 Goldwing trike using the Champion IRS [Independent Rear Suspension] conversion kit installed in 2010. Two things, I don't know what on earth justifies the high price of those chromed plastic side covers! While there are sales here and there, I've seen alleged "discount" prices approaching $135 to $165 [and still higher on the LEFT side panel] EACH! Whew! Unfortunately, that clearly makes them an all too easily removable target for theft!

So too, and kudos to other writers who mentioned the importance of checking [and replacing when necessary] those rubber grommets which hold the side covers in place. Now, all that said, and perhaps it's only me but when it's necessary [and prudent!] to check the left side coolant level or the right side oil level, I have to literally wrestle with the covers to get them both on AND off! Anyone with the "secret" to getting them on or off quickly and, horror of horrors, avoiding the risk of cracking them since, IMO, while they look great, they are nevertheless quite flimsy and don't take kindly to any hand manipulated bending! -- Doc Tony

I spray a bit of silicone lubricant on the grommets. They are soft and pliable and hold the bosses (pegs) in place, but the silicone allows them to pull free. I also use Rudy's "keeper" products to make sure that if they ever do come free unexpectedly, that I won't lose them down the road.
