Hello everyone,

I joined the forum back in 2015 when I bought my white CTX which I rode for a couple of years and nearly 25000 miles.
After some ups and downs in life, and some fooling around with other bikes, a couple of months ago I bought a beautiful black CTX in inmaculate condition which has win my heart once again...
So here I am back here, and now hopefully for a longer time.

With this bike I feel right at home, it ticks all my motorcycling boxes, and is the most comfortable bike I've owned (and I've had over 30 bikes...)
I have fitted, as in my previous CTX, Hyperpro rear suspension and progressive kit for the front forks and now it's nearly perfect. Also, I had the seat reworked with gel and it's really comfy.
I have a couple of questions for you all that I hope you can help me with...
First, are there any comfortable pillion pegs or platforms that fit this bike?
Second, where can I get plastic covers for the holes of the rear carrier?

And third and last, has anyone fitted any reliable cruise control to this bike?

Thanks in advance and best regards from Barcelona, Spain. (y)

Welcome back.
There are Kuryakyn mini boards that will possibly work for you. Look for fitment for the ST1300 if they don't list the CTX1300.
There are a few members who have fitted CC on the bike. Some of them recently so maybe they will post in here about that.
Don't know what to tell you about plugging the holes in the rear carrier. Maybe some plastic plugs or bolt covers from a hardware store?

Hola @SpanishCTX ! - Bienvenido. Estas son algunas de las fotos que tengo para ti. Los pegs delanteros son Mini ISO Kuryakyn boards ( en mi caso los he comprado usados de una Goldwing, no recuerdo el año). Los peg traseros son genericos y con un poco de soldadura lo he podido usar.

Tambien quiero aprovechar la oportunidad para comentar que actualmente estoy fabricando los soportes, y la capucha para el boton anti-nieblas. Si te interesa saber mas contacta me en privado.
Saludos!

I recently installed an electronic cruise control that I purchased from D2D Accessories (mccruise.com). It was made in Australia. The company makes cruise controls for MANY different bikes and ATV’s. It took three days to install it. I did the job myself and I am not particularly mechanically inclined. But, the manufacturer provided great instructions, complete with photos, and all went well. My setup works like previous bikes I have owned (Gold Wings, i.e.), except it does not shutoff when I counter rotate the throttle. It is a little pricey ($967.00 delivered), but the CTX was purchased for touring (a replacement to my Gold Wings of my younger, and stronger) years. I added foot pegs and saddlebag guards (Mr. Charlie Rogina), along with a bike rest and a tour pack. It is now a great touring machine at 200 pounds less than my last (2008) model Gold Wing. Sorry for the length of this reply, but I hope this is helpful.

I have the same cruise control and I love it. Yes, it does not offer a feature to disengage with the throttle, you have to use the off button or hit the brake hard enough. This is similar to an auto cruise however, so I'm OK with that. My only complaint with it is that it really doesn't work well under 60 mph, so you really only use it on highways.

Look in the specialty parts drawers at a Lowes, Home Depot, ACE Hardware for plastic plugs.

About the cruise. I have the basic/standard model like you. The MCCruise.com cruise control solenoid is set up for the deluxe ABS bike, but it can work. MCCruise has the solenoid mounted on top of the ABS brake system box under the right side cover. The brake line setup is different for the standard model, so there's no room on top for the solenoid, unless you bend brake lines. Not for me. I put the solenoid under the brake box, and it just barely fits, but works great.
The price may be a bit much, but they've done such a great job making the cruise plug into the bike without having to cut and splice into anything. And it disengages with either brake and clutch handle
The only thing I didn't do was file out the clutch lever clamp for the controller. Instead, I rapped a thin piece of plastic from a plastic slip sheet around the handlebar. This gave me the gap needed to fit the controller bracket and still clamp down the clutch handle tight. I'm kind of picky about altering parts.
You could go with the thin ring style controller they have also.

I haven't had any issues with the MCCruise at low speeds. Interesting
