I wanted to purchase an OEM spoiler for my 2005 GL1800 through Wingstuff but was advised that Honda discontinued this particular spoiler. Candy Black Cherry (R287M) was manufactored for 04, 05 and 09 model wings. My question: Can I use a spoiler that is earmarked for a 2009 model wing and install it on my 2005 wing? What would be the differences between an 05 and 09 spoiler? Thank you in advance.

The spoiler from 2006 to 2010 has a different shape but still fits the earlier trunk. I think the different shape from 2006 is to allow clearance for a trunk rack.

Thank you FitzA1. I already have a Kuryakyn trunk rack installed so I am banking on the spoiler templates being the same for both the 05' and 09'. Man it's nerve racking (pardon the pun) drilling holes!

Alan is right, the later spoiler will fit earlier GL1800 models. It's a little bit lower and I think looks neater than the earlier spoiler.
