Windscreen vent

Postby Redgold » Fri Mar 12, 2010 7:33 am



Hi there fellow Goldwingers. I just recently purchased a 2006 GL 1800 and am new to this site. I have been searching for some answers to the question of exactly how to keep the little vent CLOSED on the windscreen when not necessary. Some cooler morning rides do not require any more cool air hitting me. Any suggestions? thanks.

It has notches that hold it in the closed position, if your vent isn't staying closed, you should look to replace the vent...they aren't too expensive.

Argh....stupid me. Took a closer look at another Goldwing in a parking lot and see that my vent is missing the little black locking thingy that controls it. Guess it broke off at some point with the previous owner. Will have to get a new vent I guess. Thanks for not laughing at me.....Have a great day all.

Here's an aftermarket assembly to replace what you have:

It's $43....that seems a little expensive to me.

You can buy the honda oem part that has the lever on it and reuse your vent grille...that part will cost you right around $20---that's what I would do

64170-MCA-A22 should be the honda part number for that, and any honda dealer can get it.
