Deep breaths

Re­place your bike’s air fil­ter

Motorcycle News (UK) - - GARAGE -

Un­bolt to re­lease

Con­sult your owner’s man­ual to lo­cate the air­box then start un­bolt­ing the tank and any trim nec­es­sary to ac­cess it. Get a mate to lend a hand if you need help lift­ing the tank off the bike.

Lift with care

Care­fully lift the tank and undo any screws that are hold­ing the air­box lid on. Clean away any de­bris from the air­box lid to stop any­thing drop­ping in then re­move it and ex­tract the old fil­ter.

In with the new

Check the new fil­ter is the same shape as the old one then re­place it. Some fil­ters re­quire the edges to be greased in order to give a per­fect seal so con­sult the in­struc­tions with the fil­ter and your man­ual.

Book a dyno

If you’ve up­rated the stock fil­ter with a free-flow­ing item and you al­ready have a freeflow­ing ex­haust fit­ted, book some time on a dyno to en­sure your bike has the ideal fu­elling to get it run­ning sweetly.
