Looks odd for me that the air filter can last 30K Km , so i decided to replace it...it's only 38$ for the OEM filter & for my bike & me it tooks a big difference ! the bike now runs better for sure & i'm happier :cool:

20 min work at home. :)

I thought the 9k mile (about 15k km) service involve cleaning and/or replacing the air filter? (Maybe I'm wrong. Have to check the manual again.)

While i had the 15K km service, the dealer didn't even check the filter.
I ask him about it & he told me that this is not necessary... so i did it my self.

The filter was very dirty! even sun ray could not get through it.

15k service just says to clean the air filter under the tank and the filter by the exhaust. 30k is when you are supposed to swap in a new filter.

Just a curiosity. How difficult is to remove the tank on the 1200 ?

I am also wondering the same thing. I have the WSM and it seems pretty straight forward. Im just worried about the part were I have to disconnect the fuel lines and lift the tank. Last thing I want to do is scratch my tank. I have a brand new BMC filter to put in it.

Remove the tank? Why? To lift it is a matter of 30 seconds.

I was looking at this photo of your monster :

Is it really simple to lift the tank ?. Nothing to disconnect ?

1. Slide elastic under the ignition switch cover out of knob. No need to remove the ignition switch cover.
2. The tank should be near empty (maximum one third) if you go in the highest possible position (else gasoline leaks through the tank`s inlet).
3. Remove the tube of the tank ventilation (front left side). If you don't it will be removed by lifting the tank.
4. You need some strength to lift the tank. It is very tight with the cables on the left side of the air filter.
5. Don't forget to reconnect the tube of the tank ventilation while setting the tank in place.

Thank you for the instructions. One more question about point 3)

Can you remove the tube for the tank ventilation just by pulling it or do you need to remove any clips ? I am asking because it is not clear from the service manual.

Thank you again.
