Air Cleaner
« on: June 19, 2014, 02:15:20 am »
I got 10000 miles on my 2013 trophy so its time for my service. The only information I cannot find is how to change the air filter. Has anyone don't this yet?

You have to take the bike apart to get to the air filter, as it is under the fuel tank, requiring a lot of the bike to be taken apart, including complete fairing removal, as well as  fuel tank removal.

However, there is some good news. As long as you're not on a lot of dirt roads or other dusty areas, the air filter will last a very long time. Way longer than the recommended 10,000 miles.

Some people in this forum have looked at  their air filters at 10K, and they were still very clean, did not need replacement at all. I bet in some cases, they will last about as long as the bike does before needing replacement.

My local dealership would agree with that. They had only done one 10k service when I last spoke and they said the filter looked brand new. The service manager said unless you were taking the bike done very dusty roads he would leave it 20k miles. That is my plan as I think at 20k it all comes apart anyway for valve adjustments.

No doubt it will be twice as dirty at 20,000 miles than 10K. That will mean it's good for another 40,000 miles or so . . . .  :047:

I replaced mine at the 20K service. It was still in good shape. Probably lasted another 10K. Since I was there I replaced it.

When my bike was in for the tank recall and head replacement at 10,000 miles the dealer agreed to replace the filter for only the cost of the filter as he had the bike all apart anyway.  He called and told me the filter didn't need to be replaced.  I told him to go ahead and do so anyway and to save the old filter for my examination.  It was true that the filter did not need replacing but my reasoning was that I won't need to pay the outrageous cost of having the tank removed for access for another 20,000 miles.  After all a new head at 10,000 and a new filter at 10,000.  Valves need examination (and possible adjustment) at 20,000.  I know filter is good for at least 20,000.  So I'm good to at least 30,000.

My filter was the same, 16000km (10000ml) filter checked at service and found clean. My riding was nearly all clean roads. I think you could safely take a chance and leave it.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
