I got a CB unit for my 1800 Goldwing, however I did not get the Capacitors that get plugged in to what I assume are there to filter out engine noise. Honda does not show a part number for these, at least not in the installation manual. Any ideas on how I can get these parts or part numbers?
Any help is welcomed!!

I have never seen the filters listed separately, but I don't notice any annoying noise on ours without, just disappointed with the range. I've seen where some on the riders forum don't even bother installing them. Too much work. Especially the fan filters. The pump filter is a no-brainer, tho.

Wow.......so you are saying I may not need them? I got this CB unit at a really good price. if it is going to be just a little whining, I can live with that, I just thought that it would be so bad that the CB would be unusable. Funny they would not already be installed to filter out noise for the factory radio. Thanks for the Reply!!!!!

I welcome any other input!!!

So are you saying that the pump filter is needed? If it a no brainer, I have no brain ;->

I have never seen the filters sold by themselves. Many people have tried to find them.

I suspect the only way to get them would be to contact the maker of the CB, if they would sell to the public. That would be the only way, or find just the filters on a wrecked bike at a salvage place.

On the range, I have noticed as you get further from other bikes, you have to cut the squelch way down. Up close I run it from 12 to 20 depending on interference and at about a mile out I cut it down to about 4 and get about another half mile.

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
