WTB: GL1500 fairing deflector screw caps

Post by Stew » Fri Nov 03, 2017 10:29 pm



Probably a long shot but I'm looking for a set of fairing deflector screw caps in Pearl Glacier White, exactly like in the picture below which I borrowed from WingAdmin's awesome timing belt DIY guide located here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9774

The Goldwing currently has some chrome aftermarket ones and I want to go back to stock.

I went to Ron Ayers website and found them selling for $29.09
Left side is Part number 64296-MT2-000ZS.
Right side is Part Number 64286-MT2-000ZS.

Oddly, I see the Black screw covers selling for $6.95.
Lefts side deflector screw cap, in Black, Part Number 64296-MT2-000ZJ.
Right side deflector screw cap, in Black, Part Number 64286-MT2-000ZJ.

I found the white ones on the Partzilla site and they are priced at $27.00.
Right deflector screw cap is Part Number 64286-MT2-000ZS.
Left deflector screw cap is Part Number 64296-MT2-000ZS.

I understand that you got the bike from your dad. Did he replace them with chrome because one or both of them were lost? Or maybe he just liked the chrome accent and he still has the white caps in a drawer or box somewhere.

Those are good finds, kinda wish the painted ones could be priced like the black (unpainted?) ones though!

I didn’t notice the chrome ones or even realize they weren’t original until after I had it for a bit. I had removed the lower fairings when I was going through it cleaning it and one of the little tabs was broken on one of them. When I looked into it I realized they were chrome replacements.

I haven’t asked him yet but I suspect he just thought they looked nice, I am not sure he would even remember though.

Thanks for looking into that!

When I changed my belts, the tab on one of mine was broken. I replaced them with the chromed ones. IIRC, they were abouts $8. That was a lot better than $28! You could always paint the chrome ones to match with some matching spray paint.

Wanted to follow up on this... I did end up ordering Honda OEM color matched replacements from Partzilla, it fascinates me that you can still order parts like this from Honda for a 17 year old motorcycle, that is product support! Aftermarket chrome pieces on the left, new color matched pieces on the right.





I don't know if my fairing deflectors aren't molded that good or what but even these new factory parts don't seem to fit that precisely, in all fairness I suppose it's not really a precision part. At any rate I do like them better than the chrome aftermarket pieces.

I too, lost one of those things a few years back, and paid the ridiculous price to replace it. And yes, it doesn't hold itself in place very well, and is guaranteed to go missing again in the future if you don't use something to keep it in place.
I found a gooy, sticky, rubbery tape, much like the stuff that is used in mailers, to hold things in place. Credit cards come to mind, but Northern Tool uses something similar to hold their $5, $10, etc. discount cards in place on their mailers. That is the perfect material for holding those plastic parts to the screw head that is behind the piece you replaced.
Mine has worked for 4+ years now. It can be removed and stuck back in place a few times before needing to be renewed with fresh stuff. I can't remember the name or brand. It is sold in a roll of "tape" stuck between 2 pieces of release paper. You just wad up a little ball of it, kinda like "buggers", and stick it in there. Great stuff. I think it was in the Walmart sewing or crafts area of the store. But here is a link to similar stuff that is way more expensive than the version I bought.
Find something, or you'll be buying those pieces again. Double sided 3M mounting tape might also work, but is way more sticky than the material I reference.

That is a great idea, I know I get enough of those in the mail, I know exactly the stuff you're talking about. I wasn't sure if there would be any point to me posting the follow up message but I'm glad I did!

Cheers!

I stuck a small piece of VHB 3M foam tape in the screw part, that hold it in place well, but not so well that you can't remove it (which you do need to do in order to do maintenance).
