Okay, I have finally changed out the air filter on the GA. I can now somewhat understand the labor charges from the dealer. If you have some time and patience this job is not bad, with a few challenges that I will outline so hopefully the forum members can avoid.Has anyone posted pics for changing the Air Filter on the GA? Are there any additional pieces that need to be removed to access the air filter? Just was quoted $615 to do a 12K service which included a boat load of labor to check the air filter and replaced if required. Why you would do all that labor and then not replace it is beyond me?
The little pop rivets under the swing out air flow vent is diffultcult to get out
I destroy one of the pop rivets and slightly scuffed the bike up under the air vent
I ended up with two extra small standard screws which are located somewhere under the 3 main upper panels, I will take the bike back apart at some point to put them back in. Do not make this mistake, this is the first time I've done this! :frown:
Are there any suggestions on what I should do for the missing pop rivet under the air vent? The manual says there is a tool to get them out in the future? I would like to see the tool as this is one small fastener! ( Picture of the empty hole attached )
Please see the attached pictures and let me know if I can help someone out that is looking to do this job.
