SP2's have right and left specific air filters?
Check the service manual.

In case you don't already have it...

Look at the orifice on the end of each filter, they are different....match them up.

No no no... That would be much to easy, logical, common sense, quicker, 99% reliable.
I'll bet he got that figured out about 3 minutes after he posted.
I was assuming there wasn't an easy way to tell, hence the manual.

That's what I get for assuming. Next time I'll look around for an orifice to inspect!

Thanks... Got it figured out.

I did search... Didn't find anything. I admit I get lazy and post quickly, but everyone has been in the same position. (If you attempt to work on your bike) I appreciate the quick responses from the forum.

So true! Most of us are completely guilty of this once in a while
Sometime's I jump right to the forum before trying to figure it out, cause I know there are many brains here that know the answer. Then I'll go back to searching while waiting on a reply. Lot's of great members with muy knowledge on this site!!!
