Airbox

Does anyone know if you can remove the OEM airbox WITHOUT removing the tank? Don't want to revisit that PITA if I can avoid it.

Thanks

probably?! i always take the tank off just to avoid the chances of it falling on my hands while i'm working underneath.


there's not much to getting the oem airbox off, so give it a shot

What do you mean probably...ha ha ha
Do you replace the sealing washers every time as well?
Is the weather allowing you to ride that beautiful bike yet?

You need to man up and add a quick release fitting to your fuel line then......

Yeah...I suppose you're right. I believe it's a 5/16th.

I've had my air box off a dozen times, never removed the fuel tank.
Pretty sure the manual even says how to do it, but yeah, it's completely do-able.
There's about 3 or 4 hoses that come in from underneath, so pay attention to those. I use a zip tie around the end of them, like a leash, to help guide them back onto the nipples.
