How do I get to the Air Filter (94 Seca2)?

I'm wanting to replace my air filter for my 1994 Yamaha XJ600. And I see that it is below the Gas tank.

Is there a way to get to the filter without taking off the gas tank? I'm sure I'll have to take off the front ferring but am really hoping the gas tank doesn't need to come off.

Any help is appreciated.

you have to take the gas tank off, but its REALLY not that hard to do. usually a bolt in the back, maybe two, and it may have bolts up front, or not depending on how the bike is designed, and it should lift off. of course you gotta disconnect the fuel line, but its really simple when you see how it goes together.

If it's like my 95yzf600 remove seat there is one bolt on the gas tank there, there is another bolt/nut up by the handlebars, lift tank pull gas lines and the air box is right there, two phillips head screws holding the lid on, pull off replace.. It's really easy to do.

Appreciate the help. I plan to take the front ferrings off anyways to better attach my windscreen so I'll probably take the tank off too and replace some other parts and fall into the money pit of doom known as "Maitanence". You know how it goes. You start off with one thing. Then something else goes wrong and that needs replacing too so you get that and if your going to do that you'll have to hvae that or it won't work and damn since I have hte engine laying around in 10,000 peices I might as well rebuild the damn thing from the block up.

I guess I'll get a manual for the bike so I know exactly how to get to it.

You may not have to take your gas tank all the way off. Mine has 1 bolt. I unbolt that and then I lift the back of the tank up and shove a rag between the tank and the frame so that the tank is proped up. I then have access to the air box lid. Its real real easy. Even if you have to remove the tank its a 2 minute job.

great call on getting the manual to figure it out. remember, the more times you do it, the quicker you can be at achieving it. trust me, I've got carb removal, clean and reinstal down to 30 mins on my 500R. done it SO MANY times on my old one that its second nature.
