Yes, it works great. But most folks who install it think it's supposed to filter out wind noise ('cause that's what the name implies), so they're disappointed with it. All it was designed to do is keep wind gusts from muting your radio without the need to adjust the muting control up so high that your co-rider has to yell into the mic. It does that just fine, but you'll still hear wind noise.FOOT said:Feed Back Needed.........Does the J & M Wind Noise Filter work.
It is supposed to be a noise filter - taking out the electronic buzzing on the intercoms of the older bikes. No, it does not work. I gave one away because it did nothing. I think Electrical Connection makes one, can't tell you if they work, and Jon of Cycle Gadgets used to make one that does work. But that J&M isn't even worth the time it takes to take the seat off.Feed Back Needed.........Does the J & M Wind Noise Filter work.
Harry, this guy's asking about J&M's wind noise filter for GL1800. What you're slamming here is the capacitor pack that J&M once sold to get the alternator buzz out of the four-cylinder Wings. That product hasn't been on the market in years (you're right; it didn't work).IR Harry said:It is supposed to be a noise filter - taking out the electronic buzzing on the intercoms of the older bikes.

I got one of them, and they did absolutely nothing for any audio reduction - only thing they did was make the wire longer.This is a passive electronic low frequency wind noise filter for the passenger position on the Honda GL-1800.
In addition to reducing the actual wind noise that is heard thru the intercom system, this filter also helps the music mute sensitivity circuit to work better, making it easier to find a control position where the wind and background noise will not mute the music but voice frequencies will.
Installation is a snap as this filter plugs in series with the passengers headset lead under the back of the seat.

Thanks EE, but it was ordered via Internet so I'll let it go through. It is a good idea though and someone else will prob take you up on the offer. :wink:Eagle Eye said:DrtiBird.....If it's not to late to cancell your order I have the same unit
( I bought it 9/18/06, installed it yesterday ) works great, but the SO thinks it's too much trouble to push the switch everytime she wants to talk. 1/2 of retail will get it to you......E.E.
Okay, Harry. I could have sworn you answeredIR Harry said:Stu - no, it is not the old one I am talking about - and your right, that did not work either. I am referring to this thing right here that J&M brought out in for the 1800. I got one of them, and they did absolutely nothing for any audio reduction - only thing they did was make the wire longer.
so perhaps you'll forgive my rash assumption that you were referring to the unit that was supposed to eliminate the buzzing from the intercom of the older bikes. :roll:It is supposed to be a noise filter - taking out the electronic buzzing on the intercoms of the older bikes
