I finally picked up my first Wing yesterday. It only came with one key (and no fob). Can anyone recommend a dealer near Dayton for parts and service? I live in Beavercreek, if that matters.

There's one in Troy, but I've never had any dealings with them, also one in Fairfield.
When I lived in Eaton I always took mine to Ike's Bikes in Richmond, In.
I live in Wapak now so I may have to try the one in Troy

I can’t help you with a dealer as I live over two hours away. But if you don’t still do that four letter word that starts with “W” and ends with “K”. Come and have lunch with us Wednesday at Capricorn Inn.

I saw that. Unfortunately, I have a few more years of w**k.

Might check Ride 1 Powersports in Springfield (used to be Competition Accessories), and maybe Middletown Cycle.


What year Wing? If it's for an 1832cc model ('01-'17), you might be able to use a fob from a Honda car. I don't remember details, but I do remember reading threads on here about doing that. There are also many threads about having another key cut (just about anywhere that does keys) as long as you can get the right blank.


Start a thread on the General Message board and ask what Honda car fob to use and what key blank. The smart folks will be along really quick and tell you what you need.

grossie welcome to the wing world!

Several guys with wings around this area.

As Taddpole says, the smart guys will help you if you ask. (I'm not one of them, I'm more the manual labor help type guy)

Also be glad to meet up sometime for coffee or ??? and I'll try to bring Taddpole along to buy. (He is one of the smart ones)

If it's a 01-17 I got the blank for an extra key (many years ago) for my 2004 at Walmart. But I don't remember the key code.

grossie watch for a pm

Tried the closest blank at the local hardware store this morning, it opened the trunk, but would turn the ignition. I'll give Walmart a shot this week. Definitely interested in meeting for a coffee or something. Thanks!

Ride1 is probably a decent option, but I had a bad experience with their service department with my VStar. I work about 20 min from Middletown, so that's a good option for me.

We use Powersports of Troy
1640 W. Main Street
Troy, OH 45373
Phone: 937-332-3440

Have used them for a few years now and always gotten good service from them. Recently had trouble when on an extended trip out west and called them quite a few times for advice and help locating a part. They were great about helping us out. Give them a try.

think you're looking for an axxess 27R key. But there's something about the length of the grove in the side makes it only open the gas/trunk but won't fire-up the bike. Try sweet-talking a locksmith.

If all else fails, cycle max in valley city (near Medina oh) has the genuine honda 1800 key blanks for about $18

You can order from their website or call them. Great folks. Always helpful to me.

One fits 2001 -2010 models, and different keys fits 2012 - 2017 models. They have all three.

Edit: the keys for 2012-2017 cost more than the 2001-2010 models. Didn’t see that before.

Key Fob solved, Dealer visit scheduled

So, if anyone is curious, the $30 key fob on Amazon (search Goldwing key fob) works great. I had to go to their webpage and use the chat feature (to get the right directions). The person on the chat was very helpful and the remote works fine after a few tries to get it programmed.

Also, taking the 08 in to Powersports of Troy on Wednesday to check it out before my weekend trip on the 21st. They also have Honda blank keys and even suggested where to get it cut. There were also able to order new rubber pads for the OEM passenger floor boards (one was missing).

In addition, it's been better than Christmas. Seems like a delivery is showing up every day from Amazon or Revzilla or somewhere. :)

Wanna bet it was the left one missing? I've lost a couple of them. I came to the conclusion that carrying a passenger will do that. Most passengers step up with their left foot perpendicular to the line of the bike, and then pivot their foot as they sit down. This "loaded" pivot can cause the pad to come loose. It seems unnatural, but have your passenger place their left foot on the floor board parallel to the line of the bike when they get on - you probably won't loose another one very quickly.


Another thing you can do (Rube Goldberg) is to look at the bolts that hold the cover on the underside of the floor board on. The hole for the front one goes through. If you locate it properly, you can drill a small hole in the rubber pad, then insert a button-head screw (with washer) into that hole from the top. That will help keep the front of the rubber from coming up. You might need to shorten the bolt on the bottom to have room for the bolt from the top to thread in.

I lost a left side passenger rubber many years ago too. I bought a replacement rubber piece, but eventually installed Kury transformer passenger floorboards for mrs wahoo’s “Riding enjoyment” (and to end her complaining about sore leg muscles on higher mileage days) so the problem was eliminated for me.

I originally thought about glueing the rubber mat in place but was afraid I wouldn’t be able to easily remove it if it wore out.

You are correct. It is the left one. I'll make sure my rider knows the parallel method.

Good info. Thanks!

The dealership in Troy is first rate. Easy access from 75. Very relaxed atmosphere. The service manager is Ben and seems to really know his stuff.
