Re:How To Get At Air Filter?

Does anybody have an exploded drawing of how to get at the air filter of an "02" K12RS? I just realized I've never even looked at since I got it clear back in Aug. of 2001! I'm not having any problems but I sure as heck should take a look at it after all these years! Thanks for the help. :-)

Re:How To Get At Air Filter?

Way cool! Looks easier than I thought. At least it's not like my wife's 2000 R1100S! Thank you for the help. :-)

The BMW air filter foam gasket around the air-fliter has no memory.
DO NOT take it out and clean it and use it again, it will not seal tight in the air box.The foam gasket will not expand back to it's origanal size. It will fit loose.

I have done this and have had fine sand get past the air filter in-to the clean air side of the system.

Re:How To Get At Air Filter?

Wow! Did it hurt anything? I didn't really have to worry about this one as I had mine converted to a K & N before I even drove it off the lot, it wasn't as dirty as you'd think it would be for having been 8 years since it was ever looked at again! I'd seen worse from just one summer of use on my Turbo Honda back in Oregon, here in Florida doesn't seem to be so much dust in the air? :-)

Smile Air Filter

BTW. The air filter can be removed without removing the fuel tank. With the bodywork off, just lift the fuel tank and move it over to the right side so that you will have enough room to remove the screws, cover and then the filter. Saves a good bit of time!

Until........The gas tank is heavy with fuel, not naturally balanced along the center, tips over falling to the ground, pulls out the wires, stretches the fuel hoses and ruins the paint finish on the plastic.

It happened to me so take care.
