Not too difficult to install. I did not notice any substantial noise increase but am getting better milage. I do reccommend this product.
I am confused. The standard OEM filter shown further up the page looks like it comes in two types. The 49 State version and the California version. But it looks like this K$N filter only comes in the one type. If I buy this K$N filter, will it fit my California Goldwing SE ?
A must have item. Noticeable throttle response. Easy to install but read the instructions! Couldn't fit the air box cover back on until I read about removing the original O ring seals (in the cover AND the base). Piece of cake now. Also, picked up 2 mpg.
Replaced the stock one on my 1996 Aspencade with this K&N replacement and it fit perfectly. It didn't look like the previous owner had changed the filter for a while probably since it requires a little effort to replace it. I have used K&N in the past on my other vehicles and always been pleased. This is a great application. A+++
I would highly recommend it anyone looking for increased power through simple maens. This K&N fits in place exactly like OEM and really allows good airflow. The 1500 breathes better. On longer trips I ride with a tank bag, but on day trips without the tankbag I can hear more of the engine (which is nice since I like my GL to be loud). Pete's right, the lower end power is better, no lagtime. It's been in for 4000 miles and I popped it open.. Looks fine to me. I should changed to this long ago.
I bought my replacement bike last fall from a dealership. ( I hit a deer on my old one and totaled it out) Apparently they dont change the air filter when they serviced the bike before the sale. It was terrible, about 75% plugged. I put this in and throttle reponse was tremendious. Highly recomend this to anyone.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
