Problem with Chrome Key Insert for the Goldwing GL1800 European Model
The Chrome key insert for the GL1800 is a nice addition to the dash area for the bike, but if you have a European model bike it comes with a problem. The Key insert will interfere with the HIS on the European model and as soon as you put it on the bike wont start.
We have had customers on to us from time to time with this problem so we have found a way by doing a small job on the key accent to make it work and is quiet easy.
1. Turn the Insert upside down.
2. File down the hi-lighted area of the insert.
3. Below is a picture of one we have already done. As you can see there is very little taken off. We have found the the amount
you need to take can vary from bike to bike. In some cases we have had to file the ring area all the way done. The best thing to
do is take a small piece off and try to see if the bike will start, if the bike don't start keep taken a piece off till it starts. When it
does start just take a small piece more off just to be sure.
