See if you have any kinked links, if no linked links keep going till you maxed the stretch.

I changed my air filters today at 21k miles. Probably could have got another 5k out of them.

Takes about an hour, I am slow. I have to remove crash bars, side panels arenít bad once you do it a couple of times. Pretty simple job.

Re: Africa Twin thread

I had my air filters changed on the AT last week at 8k miles. Half those miles were on dirt, so my filters were filthy.

Re: Africa Twin thread

My local dealer ordered one for me as well. Going to swing it by when the rain lets up.

That was what I concerned about (not being able to do it myself). Due to my schedule, itís going to be tough to make it by a shop to get it done.

Re: Africa Twin thread

North Houston AT-owner checking in!
Looking to put some miles on the new bike.
Could use a nice coating of dirt, so don't mind taking the less-traveled roads if anyone knows their way around down here.
