I have a 2008 Goldwing 1800. It leaks small amount of water into the trunk. However, the amount of water is enough to have ruined my CB radio. I have the wiring harness completly sealed. Any one have this problem before? Does anyone know something about this problem?

I have an 09 GL1800 and have not had any water problems with the trunk. Some questions I would have are

is the seal around the lid broken or crimped by something which would allow water in?
do you have a wing or trunk rack installed? check for leaks there.
is there a crack anywhere in the trunk lid or body that could cause water to get in?
do you have side lights or after market moldings or stock moldings that may be loose?


The Wing is pretty water tight so its unusual to have a water problem. Hope you find the source. before anything else gets ruined.

= Dubbs121 Thanks for the quick reply. Today (Sat.) I opened the trunk and taped a peice of clear visgueen over the trunk so I could see where the possible leak would be when I ran water over the tail lights and latches. Sure enough, the right tail light was leaking. I called the dealer and was told to bring the bike in for repair being the bike is under warranty. Also, I should have my CB replaced at no charge.

Glad you found your leak. Even better is the fact that all repairs and damage will be covered under warranty. Ride safe and enjoy.
