At a minimum:

Remove the seat, 4 allen screws in the handles.

Remove the ignition trim. Lift at rear.

Remove the filler panels near the handlebars.

Remove the side covers, just pull off.

Remove the shelter top, there are two latches inside the fuel filler door.

You should be able to remove the screws that hold the top half of the airbox on.

Then just lift the old filter out and replace with the new filter.

Pick up a Clymer manualwhen you can.

I guess that is one reason to stay with my 1100, I don't have to dismantle the whole bike just to change the air filter.:D

That's why I put a K&N filter in. Don't have to change or check as often. What a pain in the a**. I didn't do it for any performance advantages or anything like that...just hate doing it.

If you do the air filter yourself once, it will be much easier in the future. Its just one of those jobs that sems much more difficult than it is. In reality it's just 4 bolts and 2 nuts to get the console off, then I think 8 screws holding the filter cover on.
