Air Filter Cover

On the bottom of the cover on the 1800, is the bottom screw designed to turn the metal inside piece toward the housing, making the cover snug up to the housing? Turning the screw does not have any effect other than turning the metal piece. If so mine is not working properly as there is a space at the bottom. Some fluid comes out and hits my right side bag. I took cover off and tried reinserting but no luck. Any ideas other than get a new housing are as always appreciated.

I had this happen on mine. Actually it was the Honda shop did it and then denied having done it, but that's another story. At one point it got over tightened. What I did with mine was to fix the brass threaded rosette (this is the part with the knurled outside and the threaded hole) in place with super glue. Wait for the glue to set properly and you should be good to go. Just be careful to not overtighten it again.


Some say to heat the brass price up to plastic melting temp and re-insert it, but I didn't much care for that approach. I have heard that gluing it back in place with JB Weld works really well. My bet is that that would be a great fix as well.

So that plastic black piece inside the housing is supposed to be solid, not a slit on each side? Ok, vice grip and super glue. Just seems like the hole will be too small to receive the silver metal piece on the cover, but it must work that way. Thanks Harkon.

Hope we're talking about the same thing. Maybe post a pic.

2 pics show the parts in question, 3rd pic is after super glue, then put on clamp. This should solve problem?

Did you remove the part from the chrome cover and re-install it into the back cover.
Than put the glue on??

Instead of using glue I used a small screw type fuel hose clamp to squeeze it together around the threaded metal part. It's been working for a couple years now. The clamp is inside of the box and doesn't interfere with the filter.
