    How do you take out the Air Filter? I have looked at the clips and think the wiring harness has to be taken off to get to them. Looks very fiddley.

    The battery must be removed first.

    Thank you very much for the info. The two springs located on the sides were the difficult ones to a) get to and b) to unclip. Putting them back on was easier. My V85 has done just over 8000Km since March 2020 and I thought I could save myself a few bob by doing the job myself rather than pay mechanic. The upside is that the filter fits my Griso, so put the fairly new one in that and like a true Yorkshire lad was well chuffed.

    What a crock. They finally build a dual sport and then make the filter a pain to get to. The V7 and Stelvio were simple!
    So has anybody who has overfilled the CC oil checked to see if it gets into the filter like the old bikes.
