06 cbr1000 k&n install question

Before I go pulling off the annoying little plastic pins on my bike I was wondering if someone can tell me the most direct way of switching out my stock air filters. Thankx.

Just remove the gas tank. You'll find the airbox.



I'm in the downriver...

Thankx for that. I think you may have met my wife at schoolcraft last weekend? Her name was Liz and you gave her a biz card for the forum, maybe?

A little blonde haired girl with a nice helmet with hearts on the side?

If so ask her about Shery and her trying to steel your girl's soul. Too funny!! I also think she said she was going to cook you some pan sierd (sp?) tuna steaks.... What can I say... I have a hell of a memory.

If you ever need anything or any help. I'd be willing to meet up with you or you can come down to my place. I have a full size mc lift and always willing to put in some wrench time to help out a fellow biker.

Yeah, thats her. She did tell me about the evil lady... I wish I could have felt the weirdness. I really appreciate the offer to help out, that rocks, and if I ever need to do somethin off the ground I'll probably take you up on it. So far the most work I have done on bikes has been modding my dirtbike and quad, but I'm sure the quest for power will hit me hard enough to start with the cbr soon enough. BTw.... the tuna steaks were good, yum!

Later

1. Remove the filler panels that contact the tank cover.
2. Remove tank cover (I don't remember if you have to remove the front seat or not)
3. From there you can move the PCM over and take off the air box cover off.


(Let me know if you like it. I contemplating getting one for my 600RR.)

Thankx for the tips... I'll let you know if I can tell any difference. I kind of doubt it with just the filters but we'll see

Thankx again Gas Man, it would be cool to all hook up sometime for a ride. I have a shortage of people I know who have bikes. My wife is loving it so far, which is very cool. As far as the K&N filters go, The bike was fast, and it's still fast, so I guess I can't really tell. If anything, it is in the responsiveness department, but as far as speed who knows.

Yeah, just a filter is hard to gauge on the butt-dyno.

I'll shoot you a PM
