Okay...as a new Wing owner, I have a question.

I've seen some talk in here and other places about the Goldwing having a remote for the trunk. The 2006 I just purchased did not come with one but does that just mean the previous owner lost it? Did it come with this standard in 2006? How would I know?

Thanks for being nice to the newbie...

:p

Yes the trunk does have a remote to open it and lock/unlock feature if you got the key fob. It is the remote control just like the ones that come with a car.

Yes. Any remote with the correct FCC ID will work.

The ID on my 08 is E4EG8DJ.

I believethat tthese were also used on a Honda car (civic maybe) and can be found much easier than the official Goldwing ones. It will mean that the trunk picture is wrong.

There are steps posted somewhere on this board for programming the remote. Do some searching and you should find them.

Thanks, all...I just bought one on eBay with the correct FCC ID made for a Honda CRV for $10 plus $3 for shipping!

You guys are great!

We have a member on this board from Daytona Beach that in fact has a remote start on his GW.
