I hate to ask such a dumb question, but how do you access the airbox for servicing the filter? I've tried to use the search engine and just can't seem to ask the right question in order to find the thread.

Left side of the bike. remove the seat and then the cover just below the seat. The air box is behind it. It is a favorite nesting place for mice!

No fancy signature line. Too many meets to try and keep up with the icons.

My service manual hasn't arrived yet and I'm going to have some downtime Sunday. I've blindly lifted tanks before only to break some little clip that wasn't readily visible.

If you plug the word(s) "airbox" or "air filter" into the search engine it doesn't give you much.

Thanks! I would have searched for it in the wrong place.

Type this in Google - "air filter site:fjrforum.com". It will return a wealth of info as well as the frustrations of changing the AE filter.

No wonder I couldn't find what I was looking for. The search engine here blows! One should be able to type in air filter servicing and find what is needed.

If you have the FJR outside or in a barn for any length of time, I would form some Chicken Wire Mesh around the Intake of the AirHorn... this will keep the critters out.

If you type "Hot air box site:fjrforum.com" into Google you will get all of Don and Howie's posts! :P

Keeping the bike in the garage can also be a problem:

Note the irony of the mouse stashing poison in my air filter. For some reason, he never made it back to consume the rest of his stash. :evil:
