The 2018+ Honda Gold Wings come with two tie rods on the steering system. The right tie rod controls the steering, and the left rod is on the bike in case of a catastrophic failure of the right tie rod. While this is extremely unlikely to ever happen, Honda was wise to include this extra level of safety.
The tie rod ends are not high quality. They are made with a plastic liner that wears immediately upon use. By 5,000 miles, most Wings we have seen already have slop in the steering system that is at the service limit.
We have created an aircraft grade replacement tie rod that has “zero” mechanical play in it, and never will. Our upgrade insures the tightest most precise steering for your Wing over its entire life.

i bought one of your 2018 Goldwing Tie Rod and steering lock pin . I didn’t really believe it could be that good. When i took the stock one off the bike one of rubber boots was already busted . The bike has 4300 miles on it and it had a lot slack in the handle bars. Thanks Max for all your work
