Rudys PanelKeeper Deluxe Sidepanel Kit GL1500 Goldwing

$37.95 + S&H

This double kit ties both ends of your ABS motorcycle side panels to the bike frame so you don't lose or scratch your valuable panels. Once installed, it tethers the panels using a very strong but soft pair of straps, each of which contain a small, double catch buckle in the middle so you can easily take the panels off and re-attach them at will.

This dual strap system not only prevents the loss of the panels but it also prevents paint damage and scratching that can occur when a PanelKeeper is used alone.  This is because with only one strap, the panel is free to hang down and bang around in the wind between the pegs, frame and saddle boxes, causing dents, scratches, cracks, busted mounting posts and paint loss.

When this deluxe kit set is installed, if a panel comes loose at the grommets, the panel just sits there leaning outward slightly from the top.  Also you can detach the front buckle alone and swing the panel around on the rear strap as if it were on a hinge, hanging there so you can get scratch free access to your battery or fuse block.

The kit set consists of one PanelKeeper Kit and one SecondBase Kit.

It is very 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 cover pegs. When the easy instructions are followed, the connection is so strong to the panel that the panel 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 panel near the front and rear and is invisible when the panel is in place. 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.

Each kit includes what you need to do both left and right panels. A new, complete set of panel grommets costs about what this kit does and the grommets have to be replaced every year or two. When those grommets go bad, your expensive panels fly away unless you have at least the PanelKeeper kit installed.

This kit is reasonable cost, mounts with no holes, no epoxy, no noise, no electrical shorting, super high strength, releasable, tether system that anyone can apply in about 20 minutes with some fine sand paper, steel wool, some alcohol and masking tape to prep the panel with. This isn't rocket science here (well the adhesive might be) 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 / sq. in. 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!

The kit includes step by step instructions with high quality color illustrations for each of the steps.

If you value your panels AND your paint, this kit set is just what you need.  It was designed just for this purpose and it does it very well.

As usual, we offer unlimited email technical and installation support for life of the product. 2 Full Year Materials and Workmanship warranty. Engineered to the Highest Quality Parts and Design - Engineered and Made in the USA exclusively for motorcycles.

Makes an excellent and easy add-on or gift. Great for motorcycle club meeting door prizes as well.
