Rudys PanelKeeper Sidepanel Kit GL1500 Goldwing
Now you can ride any speed for as long as you want on any road and not worry about your expensive side panels flying away!!
This kit ties your ABS motorcycle side panels to the bike frame so you don't lose your valuable panels. 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 panels off and re-attach them at will.
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 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 more than 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 the
PanelKeeper kit installed.
Although this particular kit is designed for the Honda Goldwing GL1500 side panels, specifically, it is also suitable for restraining any motorcycle ABS medium to large side panels with a 10 degree outward bend 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 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 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!
All you need is some fine steel wool, some masking or painters tape, a little soap and water to prepare the inside of the cover for the permanent adhesive base. The kit includes step by step instructions with high quality color illustrations for each of the steps.
