They were supposed to be changed after the airbox is taken off...Now, i have to get it out or my motor goes ka1!!!!!! poot!!! Can anyone help me get the airbox off? I will thank the dealer who re-used them 3 weeks ago for my 600mile tuneup!!!!

Ah shit, DONT start it

You need to take off:
All the fairings, lower/middle and top, with the top one that is held on by a allen screw located in the elec covers, loosen the other two screws in these covers as well.
Take the elec covers off, and the air tubes (small screw at front into headlamp.
Remove the seat and the small side panels.
Remove the tank (drain fuel first-syphon the tank, remove the rear mount, the two angled side one's, lift it up slightly and remove elec plug and the two quick release fuel lines and breather)
Now, next is the airbox, remove the keyguard, both eyebrows, and theres two allen bolts, one each side and hey presto its off

You're not by chance in Oregon are you? I had a similar problem.

Personality is what you show of yourself daily.

Character is what comes out under adversity. (Think about that)

it's not that bad. just follow the service manual that's on this forum.

section C - bodywork
http://www.mvagusta.net/articles/23

and BE CAREFUL at page 13, where you lift the tank and disconnect the fuel lines. they are brittle and can crack easy. have someone help by lifting the tank just enough so you can get your hands in there to unclip the lines. it helps a lot if the tank is empty. use a siphon.

you'll have those wellnuts out of there in no time!

oh, and i would suggest that you disconnect the battery so that you can't start the bike by accident.

Hmm...looking at the diagram in the shop manual..it looks like the screw insert cant get to the throttle body because the air filter would block it???? true? http://www.mvagusta.net/articles/Man...1d/123-138.pdf PAGE 14 is the diagram

there are two wellnuts that hold that cover on. the forward one, is ahead of the filter, and yes the wellnut will NOT reach the intake from that location.

the rear bolt location is behind the filter - it's a straight, and rather short trip to the cylinder! a MAJOR design flaw of this bike, imho.
