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.
However, Honda installed a floating rubber bushing where the rear of the left tie rod attaches to the triple clamp. Conceptually, this is to avoid the possibility of the two tie rods putting any force on each other creating unnecessary wear.
The downside of this is that the bike would be extremely difficult, if not almost impossible to control with this floppy bushing on the left side.
Traxxion has created a new solid steel replacement. Our bushing eliminator is CNC machined with precision in our state-of-the-art facility from 303 Stainless Steel.
The OEM bushing is removed with a common puller and the new Traxxion Bushing Eliminator is pressed in.
In the almost completely unlikely event you were to ever experience a total failure of the right tie rod, your bike will behave completely normally with this bushing installed.
