    HOW: Change air filter

    7 Comments by Pancho Published on 07-20-07 10:19 PM
    To do this first be familiar with:
    HOW:remove fairings on F800ST

    Tools needed:
    Torx N25
    Phillips screwdriver
    Flat screwdriver
    Fingers

    After removing false gas tank, and upper fairing (you don't need to remove lower fairing) you will see the air box and air box intake:

    To remove air box intake/air filter holder you need to remove two big plastic safety clips.

    If you proceed as in the picture, using your thumb, clips goes out really easy.

    With both clips out, pull up the air intake/air filter holder.

    Here it is, just remove the old filter, clean everything, and place new filter in holder.

    Rewind the movie (pull down into original position air intake/air filter holder, install securing clips, lower fairing, mirrors, false gas tank and seat) and hit the road!

    Great post. Curious did you go with an OEM filter or a K&N?
