Show Chrome accessories for GL1800

Jan. 8, 2022 I just purchased 3 show chrome covers for the radio and 2 others. I just want to know if they can be mounted in this cold weather with the 3M tape that comes with it or do I have to wait for warmer weather ? Other choice is if I use a hair dryer to warm up the surfaces of the GL1800 das...

Re: Kuryakyn # 8990 Driver Backrest for GL1800

Jan. 7, 2022 I have the driver backrest for the Mustang. It came with the seat. It is where a normal backrest would be. However, I feel it should be higher up and the Kuryakyn should be lower. What can I say ? LOL If the seat was higher and thicker, then the Kuryakyn might be okay for me. thanks, Mo...

Re: Custom Seat for 1800

Jan. 7, 2022

I have the Mustang One Piece seat on my 2004 Honda GL1800.. It came with the bike when I purchased it last month. I find it comfortable, but I haven't driven over 200 miles on it yet. We will see.

p.s. It is made well.

Re: PROWLER RT REVERSE TRIKE KITS FOR GL1800

January 7, 2022

I spoke to Motor Trike Corporation last week and they told me that they only sold between 3-5 per years. That makes a maximum of 30 Prowler RT's out there. Well, I have one of them.

Kuryakyn # 8990 Driver Backrest for GL1800

Jan. 7, 2022 I would like to know if anyone has lowered the height of this backrest ? I wanted to remove about 3 inches of the vertical straight tube coming from the adjustable lock mount. It seems as though it is too high up with my Mustang seat. I was thinking of removing about 3 inches and placin...

Re: PROWLER RT REVERSE TRIKE KITS FOR GL1800

Dec. 24, 2021 Hi John. I remember seeing the Piaggio scooter with the two front wheels and said it looked crazy. I had Vespa scooters way back in the 60's. They were fun, but I liked the Suzuki Burgman's much much better. I will continue to enjoy my Prowler and report in with any new ideas . Motogordo

PROWLER RT REVERSE TRIKE KITS FOR GL1800

Dec. 23, 2021 I was wondering why I never see or know anyone on the internet who has the 2016 ProwlerRT installed. I must be one of the few that purchased a used 2004 GL1800 with the ProwlerRT installed. I contacted Motor Trike Corporation and they told me they only sold 3-5 per year since 2016, whe...

Metal skid plates under GL1800

Dec. 18, 2021 I just noticed that under my 2004 GL1800/ Prowler RT convesion, there is a metal skid plate. I see a slight dent in it and was wondering if they are worth having ? I know you will say if it has a dent then your engine and other parts were protected. Motogordo

I have the RAM ball mount with the plastic cup. I solved the loose screw problem by just using super glue on the screw and washer. No problem of loose screw anymore.

Thanks everyone for answering my question on the vent gasket. I guess I am not going crazy about losing one into space.

Rubber gasket on GL1800 windshield vent

Dec. 11, 2021

Is there a rubber gasket that comes with the adjustable vent on the windshield ? I thought that I had one when I took off the vent to replace it with a new one, but it seemed to have vanished into the air.

Re: Drink holder mount where there's .... NO SPACE!

Dec. 10, 2021 I saw your garmin mount and I thought that you might have made holes in the dash for that. I see now you didn't. I decided to just drill 4 holes a few inches above the vent and mount the Ram square mount with the Ball. Worked fine and a great view of it. I wasn't worried about the wind...

Dec. 9,2021 When I purchased my 2004 Honda GL1800 with the ProwlerRT reverse kit, the cruise on/off button had to be held in for the cruise to work. It wouldn't spring back off. I super glued the button in the on position and now it stays on with no problem. I purchased this bike last month from Cyc...
