Step by step Air Filter replacement

I tried do complete step by step instructions. I apologize in advance if I've left any steps out. Please let me know if I need to add anything. Next time I do the filter change, I update the process below.

Changed mine a couple days ago for 12,000 mile service. A few leaves in intake duct otherwise filter very clean. Could go a lot longer for my type riding
Good time to inspect and clean around fuel tank. Finally got to verify tank is 26.5 liters or 7 gallons
Give yourself about a hour to do a replacement and cleaning, a compressor helps in cleaning around tank( do so before removing old filter though)
Great pic's and write up Joe

I have found that you do not have to remove the duct work in order to remove the filter.

Very clear instruction, thanks. Just followed this to install an Accelerator Module.

There is a slight change (improvement?) I have noticed on my '14 Sport model. In step 1 there is now only one screw, the second one has been replaced by a rubber bump stop.

Nice job! My 2012 (delivered in May, 2011) only has one screw also.

Sorry for the confusion, step one shows 1 screw per side. I also have the bump stop. In each picture, an arrow will point to a single screw or fastener.
