Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Main Filter
The air filter hides behind a round plastic plate on the left of the bike just below the front of the seat. Remove the small bolts securing the cover and pull it off to reveal the air filter.

Even if you are not replacing the air filter, it is worth pulling it out and tapping out any dust, grit or spiders it has caught. Also give the airbox a wipe out with a damp cloth.

The new filter fits staight in.

Note: the standard filter is made of corriagated paper. If you have one made of cotton trapped in a wire mesh, lucky you, it's a K&N high-flow filter that lasts the lifetime of the bike. K&Ns should be cleaned and lubed occasionally -- more info on their website.

Sub-Air Filter
The sub-air filter should be cleaned whenever the main air filter is changed. Remove the tank and look for a black plastic box about the size of a matchbox with a rubber pipe leading to it.

Unclip the cover and remove the filter element. Wash it in warm soapy water, dry thoroughly and reinstall.
