Shelter removal for an F6B

Here is part 1 of my air filter change on an F6B.
Most of this applies to a full GL1800 as well.
Part 2, the actual filter change, follows.

If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyways

Great video. I had already done it once on my 2012 GL1800 and it is time consuming. One thing I did do was to use a piece of cardboard and drew the basic shape of the shelter on it. I then put the screws in the cardboard in the locations in which I removed them.

Excellant work. Thanks and God bless you for doing it. Can't wait for part 2.

May Jesus Christ bless us all.

This was an informative and well done video.
I already have the JIS screwdrivers, but I never thought about the bits.
Bird you made it painless to find those bits by showing them in the video.
I ordered them the day you posted the video.


I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Good job on the video, hats off.

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

GL1800...that's how I roll!
