K&N Air Filter Recharge

Post by Rambo1207 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 8:06 am

A new to GoldWings rider, I took the advise of my Wing's prior owner and had my dealer recharge the K&N air filter when he was adjusting the valves as called for at 32,000 miles.

The mechanic did the recharge as requested, and later told me that this recharge was premature and that a 50,000 mile interval would be more appropriate.

Being in northeast Ohio, I only ride in good weather and never encounter dusty conditions that would lend to air filter concerns.

What recharge milage intervals would you suggest?

I am not a professional, nor do I play one on TV, but I service mine on all my vehicles every oil change. However, in this part of the world dust is a major problem. They don't always need it, so I consider it servicing my peace of mind.
