Rudys LidKeeper kit for GL1100 & GL1200 Goldwing

$24.95 + S&H

(General purpose use suitable item)

Ever ride off after a stop and forget to latch your GL1100 or GL1200 (or other) lids back on your saddle boxes only to discover the problem when you hit 60 MPH as the box lid takes off to destroy itself or get lost?

Ever take your box lid off and set it beside the bike or on the seat only to have a gust of wind blow it off as soon as your hands get full?

Did you ever secure your box lids with wire and wish you could detach them and reattach them easily?

If you did or if you worry about it happening to your scratch free box lids, you will want this kit.

This kit ties your ABS motorcycle box lids to the box in a way that not only stays out of the way, but is easily detached and re-attached as often as you want. Once installed, it tethers the panels by a very strong but soft strap which contains a small buckle in the middle so you can easily take the lids off and re-attach them at will.

It is easy to install and solves a big problem, permanently so you can ride without concern about it ever again. You don't have to make any holes and no stress is placed on any of the existing hardware or other points. When the easy instructions are followed, the connection is so strong to the original pieces would likely break before the connection was broken. It will not conduct electricity and is resistant to most chemicals including some acids.

It mounts to the inside of the box near the outer front and the other end is attached at the center of the inside of the lid. It is invisible when the lid is on. It will not deform the outer panel surface at all like some liquid solvent type adhesives can do. It won't warp, crack or dissolve your panels, but it won't let go, either.

Install Guide
Each kit includes what you need to do both left and right panels with a single strap per side or to do one side with dual straps but not both.  If you want both, then order the LidKeeper 2x kit instead or get two of these.

Although this particular kit is designed for the Honda Goldwing GL1100 and GL1200 box lids, specifically, it is also suitable for restraining any motorcycle ABS medium to large panels with a flat 2" x 3" ABS surface on it anyplace!  We also have other kits and bases which should fit your application. Please contact us before buying if you have a specific need and we will try accommodate you.

This is a substantial and permanent solution to lid retention.

This kit is easy to install, low cost, no holes, no epoxy, no noise, no electrical shorting, super high strength, releasable, tether system that anyone can apply in about 10 minutes per strap with some steel wool and masking tape to prep the panel with, then this kit is for you. This isn't rocket science here (well maybe the adhesive is) but every facet of the problem has been worked out for you in every detail. Including an easy to apply high strength, stainless reinforced base plate that uses 140 lb tensile strength adhesive that is rated from -40 F to 200 F. This industrial VHB adhesive is used to permanently attach scuff plates to the exteriors of airplane wings!

Also, for your convenience, there is a Full Bike Kit for the GL1100 and GL1200 with boxes, which includes two sets of this item and a SecondBase side panel kit at a discount price. Complete GL1100 GL1200 Kit
