Brake light modulators

Hello, have a new '16 GL1800 audio/comfort package. Installed a oem rear spoiler. I have ridden with others and their rear brakes will initially flash when the brakes are applied. Thinking that is a nice safety feature. I usually just tap the brakes a few time. Was looking at some different one on C...

Sprayed the locks with silicone as well as the lid catches. If I'm correct, shouldn't I adjust the lid catches? Pretty sure I...

Half cover fit...

Hello. Have a '17 GL1800 audio/comfort 2nd gen. Had a '06 GL1800. Have a Ultragard half cover that I used on the '06. Put in on the '17 the other day and its seems to be a tighter fit. Is it possible that a new cover for the '17 would fit better or am I just imagining things and the fit is the same?...
