  • Rock hitting case boss that holds shift linkage and breaking it

    Has any one made a guard to keep this from happening.

    No one makes a Belly Pan for the ST1800 (YET)


    You aren't worried that this could happen to a manual ST1800 are you??

    The DCT has the same issue of the Protruding Boss. (only no shifter shaft sticking out)

        On an up note, it appears to protect the oil filter very well.

          If you hit an object hard enough to break the "boss' from the engine block, I doubt a thin aluminum pan would help.

            The fact of the matter the words "Belly Pan" are misleading. (A pan holds something)

            The real name should be "Deflector Shield"

            Its purpose is not to take any Direct Hit.
            But to Deflect any object that is either run over by the front tire,
            Or by bouncing on the road from another cage hitting it just as your bike comes along.

            Yes there have been a handful reported cases of
            Oil Filter hits.
            Case Damage.
            Coolant tank punctures.

            on the GL1800

            Call it what you like. It's still cheap insurance!.
            Instead of any of the above-Or walking for cell service if you are SOL.
            Because you thought you'd never need one.



            After seeing what happened to my store bought Shield.
            I made a much thicker shield.(0.60)

              Nice job Rocky, it looks pretty solid. You should consider designing one for the new Wing, you'll make a lot of riders happy and maybe a nice addition to your retirement fund.

            You are correct, DCT doesn't have the shift lever hanging out. So maybe??? Keep your road hazard ins updated.

              Contacted Big Bike Parts and although they make a "shield" for the GL1500 & 2001-17 GL1800, they don't have immediate plans to make one for the 2018+ Goldwings. Maybe if we all sent them an email they might move it to the top of their list. Customer Service email is below.

                DCT can break also. My friend was riding down off a mountain in Washington and a rock rolled off the back under his DCT and broke the engine case dumping the oil. 20 hours shop time fixing it.

                  HONDA only paid 20 hours shop time to fix it.
                  Fixed it for you.
