I roddy44

This is a great video to this job.

I will add, take your digital camera and took several pictures, it's a good thing to do.

The video is good. I would also advise a back up service manual, just in case. If you do not have one, try here:

This is a great service manual that, I recommend more than one, but I never some GoldWingMen of good comments, it is well done. But the video is excellent.

I thought that Honda had made changing the air filter easier on the 1800 from the 1500. Watching that video has me thinking otherwise.

Changing the air filter on the 1500 is a cakewalk compared to the 1800.

YA, I think so too. Took a little bit the first time around but now it's not so bad.

Is the HONDA (brand) original filter the only one that's available or is there an aftermarket version that someone would recommend over the HONDA?

The Honda brand isn't the only one available but for $18 from Cyclemax I would just stick with it.

You can get a K&N if you are so inclined.

Otherwise there are filters made by HiFlo which will probably run around the same price wise.

The GL1800 is not so bad after the first time I took and read the shop man. about four times before I started and took my time I did it in 2 1/2hours start to finish. I 'm saying anything bad about K&N filters but I have read it's not the way to go in these bikes Because you should clean and re oil them at least once a year and maybe twice and people tend not to do that in the 1800 because of the tear down time..

Also anything that lets more air in may also let more dirt in. Have read some stuff about larger particle sizes being allowed through compared to the paper filters.

Thanks, just got this 08 on Superbowl Monday with 7900 miles on it. The air filter probably have never been changed, as the PO told me he and his wife had riden it sparingly since purchased new in 2010.It may be good for another year.

I waited till about 30,000 to change mine and it still wasn't dirty. This is what most find when they change it for the 1st time. My 2nd change will be with about 75K on the bike.

Have talked to at least 5 owners that had between 25 and 30,000 miles on their wing and was told that the air filter was still good for at least another 10,000 miles.

I All the GoldWingMen

I'll say more as it depends on the roads you drive.
When I bought my GoldWing in 2007, it had 18,907 km on the clock, and the filter was dirty and I change it board myself, have a good job when the only ever done.
Last season I change them again, it would still last for another two seasons.

I cbx4evr

Since I first change the air filter of my GoldWing, three friends GoldWing owner, I show how to change the air filter.
There have anything to do complex, taking pictures has all the steps with a digital camera, and minimal tools, one of patience. Rite on.

I'm still very new to the Goldwing. I picked up a 2008 with low miles (9700) last summer. I have done a lot of work on my bikes prior to owning a goldwing. I have to say that changing the air filter looks like a pain in the a**. I just changed tires and I think I would rather do that again before I change the air filter. LOL
