I have a 19981 GL1100 standard with Krauser bags. Is there a aftermarket grab rail available for the passenger? I am new to Goldwings and can not seem to find a straight answer anywhere.

Also, I would like to install a set of armrests as well. Has anyone put them on a GL1100? If so, any advice and information appreciated.

Thanks

I've never heard of an aftermarket grab for the 1100, and I have some old catalogs for accessories at home and they don't mention this either. It would probably be easy enough to make a set, if you know someone with a pipe bender. The usual solution is to make them from stainless steel polished up.

I too am working on (rebuilding)a 1981 GL1100 at this time and finding accessories is hard. Most seem to be in poor condition or non existence. Even the tech manual I have is a joke.. (I'm buying a different manual now)

From what I have seen (looking at old pictures and old ads of the goldwing) the GL1100 didn't have a grab bar. (maybe did.. I just can't find it) They all seem to be sold with luggage. J.C. Whitney sells the "5 piece tour seat" (arm rest) and from dealing with them in the past installation shouldn't be hard.

The closet thing I could find to a grab bar is a "sissy bar" and I have no idea if it fits. You have to measure the bolt holes. Maybe break out a hax saw too... :p

Good luck.. maybe we can compair notes......
