Air Filter change

Postby BrianRich » Fri Aug 12, 2016 12:26 pm



I'm looking for tips, tricks, guidelines, maybe even a video, on changing the air filter on a 2012 GL1800. I understand that the top end is changed from the earlier models, from 2012 on, but before I start tearing into it and maybe messing something up, I thought it would be more prudent to check for any technical info that might be available. I am SOMEWHAT mechanically inclined, but I HATE taking all that plastic off my Wing, I always seem to break a tab, or mess something up! Any info would be greatly appreciated. I have a new K&N to put in, to replace the stock Honda filter that's in there now, which has been in for quite a few miles and I'm SURE it needs to be replaced!!!!!

Here's a video....
I didn't watch it, but seems like it'll help you out:

If you have a Harbor Freight store pick up a set of these. Makes it easy to "pop" the hidden pins on the bottom of the fairing trim.
