Adjusting rear passenger seat 2002 1800

Post by nedntrish »



My wife complains that on our 2002 1800 she feels like she is leaning back to far. She liked the way th 98 1500 felt better. Any ideas?

Angled spacer between the trunk and seat back?

That thought occurred to me. I haven taken anything apart yet, but wouldn’t that leave an ugly gap? I’m also thinking that rain can get in there and mess things up.

If you can take her back cushion apart and modify the foam so she sits straight up. I dont know why Honda thought that would be comfortable for the passenger. When I had my seat redone they also did the passengers backrest also.

This is what you need.

It will put the passenger in more of an upright position. I have one on my 2017 GL1800 and three of my riding partners have one on their fifth generation Gold Wings as well.
