OK that's the left one I'm talkin bout. Anyways, the fact that my saddle bag doesn't open automatically on that side is a bit irritating. Before you say, try a little WD40 or other lubricant, I did already. So... is there any adjustment a guy can do? Oh yes this is on an 08' GL1800.
It feels like the handle needs to pull justna tiny bit more to fully release the catch. Any suggestions? Similar experiences?

I am not sure on the 1800's but on the 1500's there is a cover on the inside of the trunk. I think it is held on by 4 screws. You remove the cover and you can adjust the cables on the pull latches.

this was just posted. What model ya got will determine the answer.
do a search at the top as there may be a recall if yours is an 1800

I can only find the teardown and re-assembly in the service manual. I think I heard about a recall on some as mentioned. I'm out of the office tomorrow, but I'll see if I can find a bulletin that applies on Thursday

Go to http://goldwingdocs.com/index.asp You will have to create a membership (free). From there you can to their site and scroll down to Service Bulletins and Recalls. There is a Service Bulletin for the "Trunk Opener Unit."
As for pushing on the top of the saddle bag, I have an 08 Wing. When I feel extra pull on the left bag opening lever, I sometimes push against the left bag lid as if I were making sure it was closed while operating the opening lever. This sometimes will make the opening mechanism operate easier.

Good luck - from the Left Coast
