Bike maintenance

Was hooking up my ram mount and running the cable to battery to where my phone will be and looked at my air filter...was gunked up good.

When your doing maintence dont forget the filter. I habe a foam dome filter. I removed had some no toil cleaner and spray. Did all the cleaning now letting it dry to oil up and stick back in.

Prob just added 180hp back into the bike

Probably a very overlooked item since they are typically not easily accessible

Be careful not to over oil the filter. I recently opened mine up and found the airbox full of filter oil, not a huge deal but a pain in the ass to clean up.
