Got the girls out for the year

Ahh Spring! Pulled the bikes out today. Not knowing if the air filter or other two filters have ever been changed, I set out to do that on the wing. 2.5 hours first time to get to the sub and cruise filters. The main air filter was changed and very recently so I did not change that, I'll just hang onto the new one until I need it. Pleasantly surprised that the sub and cruise filters were also recently changed. The flat one fell apart when I touched it, expected that. The other one was in really good shape, can be re used in a pinch. Makes me feel good that this one has been well taken care of before I took possession last year. If you haven't, replace your cruise and sub filters. You'll learn something along the way. Like my reverse lever was missing the e clip that holds the pin in place. I don't know how that even worked without it. And someone before me reversed the bolts on the sides that hold the side panels in place...why would anyone do that? Anyway, nice first ride of the season on both bikes. Gotta get my sealegs back.

good for you, getting to know your bike. If this was the first time you changed the filters on a wing your time isn't bad. After you take it apart a couple you can get it down to about an hour.

I drive way to fast to worry about my cholesterol

Last Saturday I planned on doing nothing all day, and by noon, I was half way done!

Two other small filters that are buried deep in the machine. One each on right and left. There is a video on here, I think, but definitely at goldwingdocs.com. The filters themeslves are small little foam things that cost about $3 each at cyclemax. These are factory filters. The cruise filter is for the air going into the vacuum part of the cruise control. Not exactly sure about the sub filter, but it is for carburetion. Usually they fall apart, if even there, when you touch them. As said, that was how I found I needed a missing part for the reverse lever. Watch the video and then plan to go after them at next air filter replacement. Changing the air filter gets you half way to the others, so that is a good time to do it.

This a good post on how to change them. Usually the sub filter will fall apart in your hands, the cruise filter normally isn't very bad

I just ordered the sub filters for mine. I tried to contact the PO, but he never returned my call. I was trying to find out what service had been done before I bought it. So far, all has been real good except the reverse. I had to adjust it. I bought all 3 filters so I could change all at once.

Safe to assume that they haven't been changed, it's a lot of work for a $3 filter that most people will just blow off. But it makes the bike happy, so why not?

Turns out they had been changed. The sub filter felt like it was new. The cruise filter was the same. The air filter was somewhat dirty, but not too bad. I went ahead and changed all 3.

That's probably something I should look at doing as well, no clue when mine may have been done last
