Is there any reason this would not work on a gl1500?

Well, it's a Barracuda part from Saber Cycle, so your bike will probably explode if you try to use it, and it will be your own fault.

You really do not want a hose for the on-bard compressor. It is a much better idea to have a separate portable inexpensive compressor to keep in your saddle bag for your air pressure needs.

It would take 30 minutes of constant running of the on-board compressor to fill a tire. That little compressor is pricey and if you burn one up, you can expect to shell out well over $300 to replace it, if you can find one. Without that on-board compressor, you will have a tough time keeping air in your rear suspension.

New to the Goldwing world. I take it Saber Cycle is a joke. Kind of like in the C3 Corvette world, Corvette Mods is a company to stay away from.

Last year I bought a couple of these for my bikes. They work quite well.

Saber has a bad reputation. Yes, stay away from them.
