Air Vent Lever

Postby martino1 » Fri Apr 04, 2014 5:48 pm



I got my 2010 Gl1800 painted out of state. The paint is Great but the Air vent Lever above the left glove box does not open and close the two air intakes on the underside of the bike. Has anyone had to deal with this hope it''s an easy fix. Cant find an exploided view anywhere and I'd like to look at one before I try to fix it myself.

Take the fairing strip off, remove the pocket, make sure the cables are connected to the lever.
If so, the next move is to remove the lower front cowl and/or the lower engine cowls to check if the cables are connected to the doors.
If the doors worked prior to paint, I suspect someone forgot to "hook" them back up.

Honda refers to it as molding. You have to remove it to get the storage pocket out.
Wrap a flat screwdriver with a piece of cloth and use it to gently pry up the bottom of the molding, then gently pull it out from the bottom up. Be careful not to break the tabs.
It is the chrome piece in the attached pic.
