There's enough info and help on here so that you may never have to pay $$$ to a stealership again
Take the seat off, you'll see two plastic screws holding the top plastic to the sidepanels, take those off. Look on that same top plastic up by the handlebars and take those two plastic screws out. Lift the plastic cover from the side panels (slots and tabs). There is the airbox, push the 5 clamps off , remove lid and there is the filter. Wash in soapy water and dry. Get some foamfilter oil and spread it on, put the whole thing in a gallon baggie and squeeze it around till the whole filter is saturated. You could wear rubber gloves but a baggie works great.

I heard you gotta first wash the filter in some gas or something strong to clean off the old oil? then soapy water,, whats the name of the foamfilter oil? or is that the name? im gonna do all this tomorrow,plus lower my shocks,and change my spark plug,ive been riding on alot of dusty trails so i thought this would be a good thing to do since the atv is new,,thanks once again Wayupnorth,,checks in the mail lol.

All the filter makers say nono on gas as a cleaner. a grease cuting dish soap is best.

might as well buy a better filter if you're taking the panels off anyways. K&N or ehs is the way to go.

as long as you buy the proper one it should fit perfectly. It allows you to remove the hanger as well.

Just sayin that is CORRECT!!!The K&N is much easier and way less messy to service!When you order your filter get some K&N filter cleaner and spray on oil so you can service it when needed.

K&N cleaner is a scam, it's dish soap in a bottle with a K&N logo. I have some, ripoff.

for the $12.00 it costs there's not much difference. how much does the bottle of dish soap, and the bottle of foam oil cost combined? same guy who's trying to tell everyone not to buy sea foam because it's ONLY a few chemicals combined (which no one know's how to properly measure).

And your 20 years old and believe everything you hear, get back to me in 40 years when your house and garage is filled with every product from every infomercial
I said seafoam is great, I also said it's a ripoff at $11 a can for 97% Isopropanl combined with a injector cleaner. I can buy big bottles of Iso for a buck and good injecror cleaners too.
I got some Yamaha snakeoil I'll sell ya son, it's magic really, it sez so on the can

i don't use sea foam, but what do i care either, its cheap. if all it is, is what you claim it is, why don't you mix up a bottle, re-label it and market it yourself?

it has nothing to do with what i believe or don't believe, but for the time it takes to buy a whole whopping $12.00 worth of supplies, versus making my own foam oil to protect my filter, i really don't care. do you make your own oil to use on your ehs filter as well?
