Download the "GL1800 Service Manual" from the manuals page here, and go to page 20-42 - the procedure is described there.

In the service manual I have the answer was on page 19-42. It worked for me. I now have two remotes that work on my 1800.
• The codes of up to three transmitters can be registered into the trunk lock control unit memory.
(If a fourth code is stored, the code which was registered first will be erased.)
• Make sure to keep the timing between 1 and 4 seconds for each action. Too fast or too slow
will cause the control unit to lose the stored codes.

1. Turn the ignition switch to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds, press the trunk opener button on the
transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition
switch to “OFF.”

2. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1
and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”

3. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Between 1
and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”

4. Between 1 and 4 seconds, turn the ignition switch back to “ON.” Between 1 and 4 seconds,
press the trunk opener button on the transmitter while aiming transmitter at the trunk. Confirm
that the turn signal lights blink twice.
Leave the ignition switch “ON.”

5. Within 10 seconds, aim the transmitters (up to three) that you want to store codes in at the trunk
and press the trunk opener button once on each transmitter. Confirm that the turn signal lights
blink twice.
Turn the ignition switch to “OFF.”

6. Confirm proper operation of each transmitter with the new codes.

Make sure the remote battery is good.
Press the lock button and look for the small red LED to come on. It is just above the lock button.


If that light does not come on either the battery is dead, installed wrong or the remote is toast.

If you have not already tried it, disconnect the bike battery negative cable, leave it disconnected for 15 minutes or so and then hook it back up.
