Air filter replacement

Does any one know how to replace the air filter on a K 1200 GT and while on that subject is there an online maintenance manual for the slant 4's? I remember buying a manual for my oilhead and then seeing a much better one for free online and am trying to avoid making the same mistake again. Thanks...................

It was pretty obvious from what I remember...

Remove fairing.
Free up the intake.
Remove the pins markes as 2. (I seem to remember there being 2)
Shuffle things around
Pull the filter out.

Air filter replacement

1. Remove the right side lower , right side while sitting on the bike. Screws are easy to see except the ones on the front where the rad gets its air from.
2. Remove the air snorkel pulls out I think the ecu might swing out also, been a while.
3.pull out the clips and then the snorkel will come off and slide out the filter. I replaced mine with a K&E and it seems great. Hope this helps

Not sure the model i'll try to find the box it came in, but any dealer of K&N can tell you. The K&N has a cone efect to it so it allows more air flow and has been great in my 07 GT
