It won't be hard to do, just take a little time. You will have to remove the front fairings, take the "dash" (speedo surround) that attaches to the tank loose, take off the black plastic covers right under the tank, and pull the tank up and to the side or totally off. Then you remove one phillips head screw and pull it up out the air filter.Has anyone out there cleaned or changed their air filter yet? If so, how hard was it and how long did it take?
This has inspired a thread for off topic discussion! You'll be duly quoted!Thanks for the ideas of replacement air filters. What is the advantage of the aftermarket filters? Does it improve performance at all? Better mpg?
Also a quick rant: Could you imagine what would happen to a car manufacturer who put out a product where you had to take off the body and the gas tank to get at the air filter? Add to that a speedometer that runs 8% slow and has buzzing dash panels? Chrysler tried that a few decades ago and would have gone out of business if Uncle Sam hadn't bailed them out. <end rant mode>
I installed a new dna filter yesterday and it would of taken only about 15 min or less, the gas line has a swival on it so you can turn it around and set the whole tank where the seat goes so it went smooth...Has anyone out there cleaned or changed their air filter yet? If so, how hard was it and how long did it take?
