Took a good portion of my bike apart today for general maintenance and deep cleaning. When I looked in at the air filter through the inlet openings, the filter looks new. I have 10k on it. The air filter wasn't on my list but upon referencing the manual, it says 12k is replacement time. I didn't get one from Hal and want to wait. Gas mileage is fine. Have multiple bikes and use this bike only for trips. About 5k a year. When did you guys do yours? Thanks.

Had ours replaced on our 03, when we had ECM job done. That was at aprox. 14,000 miles, & still looked almost new. My mechanic said, unless you ride on dirt roads, you probably don't need to change the air filter till 20,000 miles+.

I changed th air filter in my 01 at 16,000, 47,000, & 71,500. IMO in most cases th air filter is good for air least 25-30,000 miles. :mrgreen:

I just replaced mine yesterday with 18,225 miles. It had a lot of life left in it, but, I want everything like new for a big trip this summer.

If you do your own work, taking all the parts off to access the filter isn't a bad idea anyway since you get to look around and see if there is anything loose or needing attention.

I'll do the fork oil next, a set of new tires, oil and filter, and then Easward Bound....................Yippppppeeeeeee!!!

Replaced first one at 12,120 filter was very clean
replaced second one at 37,317 filter was not very dirty
replaced third one at 52,998 filter was clean.
I miss calculated and thought I had gone 25k not 15k from the last change. I will change it again in 40k miles

I'm having mine changed this week while the dealer is changing the ECM. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't be changing it for at least another riding season. (I ride approximately 15,000 miles a season, bike has 17,000 miles on it now).
