I can only speak to the K&N air filter. K&N makes great products. They increase air flow by making the space between the filter elements bigger, allowing more air and other debris to flow through it. When you consider the amount of extra maintenance they require to keep the internal engine components safe from that debris (cleaning, oiling, etc.) vs an OEM paper air filter and the time and effort required just to get at the air filter, I changed back to the OEM filter on my 1500. My 1800 has only 2000 miles and I have yet to change the air filter, but will keep using OEM.

As far as other after market items go, Honda has gone through a lot of engineering to come up with an efficient, fuel injected 1832cc 118hp engine that will last hundreds of thousands of miles at break-neck speed with routine maintenance so why on earth would I want to make wholesale changes to it? My degree is in plastics, not mech. People much smarter than me designed this fine machine.
