It is a little foam doo-dah that is found under the inside fairing on the right side. In the area around the pressure device is for the rear shock. They're cheap! And if yours has never been replaced... it should be. Cyclemax has em

Psst ..... T ..... you just described the Sub-Air Filter Element and it's location! ;)



The cruise filter, is on the left side of the bike (behind the left inner fairing)and it's function is to supply filtered air to the cruise control's vacuum controlled system.








It's towards the rear of the air filter housing and the L shaped housing which contains the actual filter element just pops off, allowing you to easily change the filter.

Excellent answer, as always, Dusty... complete with links to pics and part numbers. As Dusty has pointed out, be sure to change the often overlooked sub air filter on the right side. The element usually is original to the bike and will crumble when touched. If it crumbles while in use and some of the little pieces get in the wrong place it can cause you grief.

Thanks to all. I read posts on the sub air filter so I knew what that was and several references were made about the cruise filter but not one that I could find that explained what it does. I guess now I know why it's called a cruise filter. :jumper:

Dusty... as always you are right! Sorry!

No problem T. It was caught early on. You probably didn't have your 2nd cup of Java into you, when you replied! ;)

Any shop that sells or services lawn equipmentor small engines will have air filter foam. Cut your own and save some money.

You can use the same stuff for the cruise filter and the sub filter.

Yup- I bought tunnel filters a while back and used the excess.
Of course I have stopped using the tunnel filters anymore, so I guess that means lots of material.
Change 'em both!

Got the filters and finally got a chance to install both today. The old filters just crumbled to dust when I touched them. Thanks to all for the help.
