990 Air Filter?

OK, I give up. Nothing in the owners manual, nor google search.

How the hell do i change the air filter on my 2010 990R?

Help!

Remove the seat, remove the black glove box/ fuse box. Take the cover off the large black rectangular airbox and the paper element is in there.

I removed my entire stock airbox and replaced it with a CPR fab unit. More power, easier to clean, more customizable filtration, lighter, simpler design overall. Been very happy with it!

Good luck

It's just baffling to most dirt bike guys to have to use that many tools to access your air filter!

Add the Uni Pre filter while you are at it and have all that apart...

How long does y'alls air filters last? I changed mine at 20,315 miles and it looked good! Actually it looked the same as it did at 10,000 miles! This moto is ridden mostly on the street, very little gravel.

I changed mine at 18,000 miles and it was dirty but, it really depends on your riding environment.

+1. i ended up with a CPR Fab rottweiler filter set up and super easy to clean and service. major power increases to boot and they have different density pre-filters to make subsequent cleanings almost a joy. your stock airbox becomes a great paperweight too!

Uni Australia and Uni USA both make a prefilter. Here is Uni USA's:

Just cleaned my BMC filter on the 990R. Boy, what a pain to get to. Fortunately it was really pretty clean. A lot cleaner than the K&N on my Harley. I just went over 6000 miles on the filter.

After doing that cleaning today, the Rottweiler CPR filter is looking pretty attractive.

I did find a small amount of orangish grit on the butterflies...cleaned it up with some Throttle Body cleaner...good as new.

screw that. i have no idea what ktm was thinking when they designed that whole glovebox/airbox nightmare but me personally, couldn't wait to ditch it. now i have the CPR Rottweiler Intake and Snap-Out bracket and it take less than a minute to have my filter out and replaced. makes life sooooooooooo much easier, plus gives a nice boost of HP and smoothness to the bike. plus saves over 10lbs of useless weight. win/win/win in my book.



just my $.02,

laramie

Choose to go for something easier for the new 990R:

CPR trio installation

One of the things that have annoyed me over the years on the 950 is the air box, had a uni pre filter and later a pyndon solution and that helped out not clogging the pricy paper filter.
