I purchased my illusion blue GL1800 new in 2002. It is undeniably, and without dispute, the greatest touring bike available. I experienced the front fork instability problems from day one. After going the dealer denial route and putting up with the problem for another two years, I decided to tackle the problem on my own.
Using the same technology used on many sport bikes and the LT1200 BMW touring bike that has a factory-installed damper, I developed the GL1800 Steering Stabilizer utilizing the race-proven HyperPro™ steering damper. My original desire was to eliminate the front tire cupping. On my maiden test drive, down the twisties, I was so impressed by the handling improvement I almost forgot about the original issues!
After an extensive development and testing program I arrived at the final product. Many thousands of miles have proven this unit to be a totally effective means of addressing the GL1800 problem. I am now offering the product to all GL1800 owners. You will not be disappointed!
