Question about 1998 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing

1 Answer

Compare of width's of 1500 vs 1800

I have a 1999 GL 1500.
The width at the mirrors is 43 inches.
The width at the rear speakers is 32 inches.

What are these widths on say a 2008 GL 1800?

Reason for the question: I see owners of the GL 1800's trailering them on the "TOY Carrier" single enclosed "Cruiser Model trailer"

My GL 1500 won't fit in the trailer because of the width of the mirrors and the rear speakers.

Is there that much of a difference between them?

please let me know, thanks, Roy

Hookin up fader and rear speakers on 1990 1500 goldwing

If there is an AUX output ... try that ...

If you are jury rigging, take one wire from the speaker, put it on the center tap of your pot (veriable resistor). On the right, put a wire from there to the front speaker. On the other tap (left) run a wire to the rear. You will need a common from the front speaker (the one you left there) to the rear.

Hopefully you are not concerned about ohms or phases.

hope this helped

You would have to completely take the Mirror out or Mylar backing and being careful not to damage anything, trying to move and reassemble when you get at the new location.
