Air Cleaner Element Cleaning and Inspection

In dusty areas, the element should be cleaned more frequently than
recommended interval.
After riding through rain or on muddy roads, the element should be
cleaned immediately.
Since repeated cleaning opens the pores of the element, replace it
with a new one. Also, if there is a break in the element material or
any other damage to the element, replace the element with a new
Clean the element in a well-ventilated area, and take care that
there are no sparks or flame anywhere near the working area;
this includes any appliance with a pilot light. Because of the
danger of highly flammable liquids, do not use gasoline or a
low flash-point solvent to clean the element.
Remove the air cleaner element [A] (see Fuel System chapter).
Clean the element in a bath of a high flash-point solvent using a soft
bristle brush. Squeeze it dry in a clean towel. Do not wring the
element or blow it dry; the element can be damaged.
Check all the parts of the element for visible damage.
If any of the parts of the element are damaged, replace them.
After cleaning, saturate the element with a high-quality foam-air-filter
oil, squeeze out the excess, then wrap it in a clean rag and squeeze
it as dry as possible. Be careful not to tear the sponge filter.
Remove the towel from the carburetor.
Install the element.
