It is plug and play on the 2001-2010 GL1800s. I think there was an adapter for the 2012+. The company bought the Harley CBs and modified them to work on the GoldWing. So yes, it works with the integrated GoldWing controls.I don't think the price is the problem. Did this plug directly into your Goldwing system and operate using the GW controls? The Harley emblem would lead folks to believe it was for those bikes and adapted for the Wing. Just a thought. Good luck and ride safe.
