    Guys, how many of the Legend KB1 owners here have done an air filter change on their cars? Apparently Honda recommend a idle learn procedure when the filter panel is changed, every time you do it.

    Found that strange but it's set in stone in the WSM. Anyone noticed erratic idling after a filter change?

    Hi

    I changed the filter on my car late last august I didn't carry out the idle re learn and didn't have any problems or change in idle. interestingly an aftermarket air filter was more expensive than a genuine Honda part.

    Genuine Air filter made by Toyo Roki are far superior in filtration than K&N in my view. However this procedure is set in stone the V6 engine needs a idle learn after a air filter change, If members need the step by step for this process let me know I will post it today.
