I have a small question about airfilters on bikes with ram air. I am wondering how on earth you get at them to change them. I have never owned one with ram air and I just bot a 07 ninja 600.
If yall could perhaps provide some pictures of what it looks like apart that would be great.
They are in an airbox underneath the gas tank. In some bikes the front part of the "tank" is a plastic cover that just pops off to allow access to the airbox.
In others you will need to remove the two bolts in the front of the tank by the steering head, than prop the tank up, to get access to the airbox. From there just remove the cover and replace the filter.
Also note that most bike manuals have detailed instructions with pictures that walk you through the process. There are a few maintenance items in addition to air filter replacement that you will need to address. At least get a copy of your owner's manual, and preferably the service manual too.
Welcome to the world of sportbikes. Made for speed and handling. Ease of maintenance falls a few notches down the list.
Kawasaki filters are generally washable & reusable. On your bike, and on any bike with ram air, these filters should be cleaned very often because they filter a lot of air for their size. They are easy to do, but you should definitely get hold of a manual. By the time you finish this job it will have paid for itself...........
