Air Filter Renewal

Postby snatchpiece » 16 Jun 2019 19:09

I’ve finally removed the petrol tank ( what a struggle, I think the cups that seat on the rubber pads were catching on some cable clips), how on earth do you access the air filters? do you have to remove the carbs then remove the air filter casing?
I’ve done a search on “air filter” but it didn’t yield the info I require.
Thanks in advance,
Mick.

Although I have a Camel, I suspect it is similar. Yes you have to loosen the carbs and unbolt anything holding the airbox to the frame. Watch you dont lose any nuts. Eventually you will be able to pull the airbox out then unbolt the box apart to get to the filters.
It is a fiddly job. Not so bad on a road bike. But on my Camel that will be subjected to dust (Australian bush has LOTS!) it is going to be a pain. But necessary, unless I can think of a way to make them accessible easier.
Cheers.

Thanks rossguzzi. I’ve done it, it seems awful lot of fuss to access air filters, but hey ho it is what it is.

Thanks again.
