Air Filter Replacement 2014-Current R1200GS Adventure LC

Recommended Posts

Simple steps to replace your engine air filter on the R1200GS Adventure LC


1. Remove the four screws holding these two wind deflectors. This is actually optional, I just found it easier to remove the air box lid with these off.



2. Open the small storage compartment on top of the fuel tank. Remove the two screws shown below.




3. Take the seats off and remove these two screws.




4. In front of the fuel tank remove these three screws.




5. Now that all the hardware is removed on the center plastic cowl your able to remove it. The easiest way I found is to grab the front and rear portion with both hands and pull up. You see and hear the circle around the fuel fill area pop free.


6. Remove the fuel vent tube. This is also optional, but I found it easier to pull the air box lid off.


7. Remove the four screws holding the air box lid down. Actually remove the screws from the lid, they are long and make it difficult to navigate the cover off when they're in the way.




8. After the lid is removed you'll need to remove the air filter retainer. After all of this you'll have access to the filter. Repeat steps in reverse once A/F is replaced.
