Changing and cleaning the air filters


The filter cartridge can be cleaned with a jet of compressed air or replace if necessary.

Important

A clogged air filter will reduce air intake and engine power, increase fuel consumption and cause a build up of deposits on the spark plugs. Do not use the motorcycle without a filter as impurities in the air could get into the engine and cause damage.

Properly refit the cartridge in the filter box housing.

If the gasket (6) has been replaced, refit the new gasket in the proper seat (a) of the conveyor (2); place it so that the Tab (b) of the gasket (6) matches with slot (c) of the rh conveyor (2) as shown in the figure.

Note
