3. Install the new square rings (7) in the counterbore around the breather screw holes on the induction module side of the backplate.
4. Align the holes in the induction module with the holes in the backplate.
5. Apply a small amount of Loctite to the backplate mounting screw (11) threads. Insert the screws through the backplate and into the induction module until the screw threads are engaged. DO NOT tighten now.
6. Install the new O-rings (5) in the counterbore around the breather screw holes on the air cleaner side of the backplate.
7. Insert the breather screws (4) through the backplate. Apply a liberal amount of Loctite to the breather screw threads and the mating tapped holes in the cylinder head. Install the screws into the cylinder head. DO NOT tighten now.
8. Alternately tighten the two breather screws to 13.6–16.3 N·m (120–144 in-lbs).
9. Tighten the three backplate mounting screws to 6.2–6.8 N·m (55–60 in-lbs).
Air Filter Element and Intake Tube Installation
NOTE
  • This air filter is PRE-OILED and ready to install.
  • For best appearance, keep the band clamp screw mechanism hidden from view. However, leave the screw slot accessible for tightening.
10. Line up the holes in the gasket (3) with the holes in the intake tube (2) flange.
11. Apply a small amount of Loctite to the threads of the three flat head screws (1).
12. Secure the intake tube and gasket to the air cleaner backplate, and tighten the screws to 6.2–6.8 N·m (55–60 in-lbs).
13. Remove the air filter element (13) and band clamp (12) from the package. Loosen the band clamp as necessary allow removal or repositioning.
14. Install the air filter element onto the intake tube until it is fully seated in the groove. Check that the filter element medallion is parallel. Keep the band clamp screw mechanism hidden from view. However, leave the screw slot accessible for tightening. Tighten the clamp around the filter element flange to 5.1–6.2 N·m (45–55 in-lbs).
NOTE
Install the rain sock over the air filter element in wet or rainy conditions to prevent water intrusion.
15. Install the rain sock (19) over the air filter element.
WARNING
Connect positive (+) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00068a)
16. Refer to the service manual and follow the instructions given to connect the battery cables, positive cable first. Install seat.
WARNING
After installing seat, pull upward on seat to be sure it is locked in position. While riding, a loose seat can shift causing loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00070b)
Air Filter Element Maintenance
1. Inspect the air filter element every 5000 miles (8000 km), or more often under dusty conditions. Replace air filter element every 50,000 miles (80,000 km).
NOTE
The use of cleaning, drying or oiling methods or products other than those shown damages the filter and can void the manufacturer's warranty.
K&N® Air Filter Cleaner is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer, either alone [0.95 L (1 qt) sprayer bottle, Part No. 99883-88T] or a 0.35 L (12 fl oz) sprayer bottle as part of the Filter Care Service Kit (Part No. 99850-92T).
K&N Air Filter Oil is also available from a Harley-Davidson dealer, either alone [347 g (12.25 oz) aerosol can, Part No. 99882-88T) or a 184 g (6.5 oz) aerosol can as part of the Filter Care Service Kit.
DO NOT OVER-OIL THE AIR FILTER. Over-oiling can interfere with the proper performance of the engine and/or certain engine components. If oil is still draining or dripping from the filter media 20 minutes after oiling, clean and oil the filter element again.
2. To clean the element:
a. Loosen the hose clamp retaining the air filter element assembly to the air tube. Separate the element from the air tube.
b. Remove screw (18) and medallion (16).
c. Tap the element to dislodge any loose dirt. Gently brush with a soft bristle brush.
d. Spray air filter cleaner liberally onto the cotton filter media and let soak for ten minutes, OR roll or soak the cotton filter media in a shallow pan of air filter cleaner. Remove immediately, and let soak for ten minutes.
e. Rinse off the filter media (flowing from the clean side to the dirty side), with low-pressure tap water.
f. After rinsing, shake off all excess water, and let the filter media air dry. DO NOT use compressed air or a heat gun to speed drying.
g. After the filter media is completely dry, EITHER spray air filter oil along each pleat, once only, holding the spray nozzle approximately 76 mm (3 in) away from the media, OR carefully use a squeeze bottle to deposit oil along each pleat, once only. Let the oil absorb into the filter media for 20 minutes before proceeding. After 20 minutes, inspect the filter media. Carefully apply oil to any remaining visible white spots on the filter media. Allow oil to absorb.
h. Install medallion and screw.
3. Install air filter element with clamp onto the intake tube until it is fully seated into the groove. Check that the element medallion is parallel to the motorcycle. Tighten the clamp around the filter element flange to 3.4–4.5 N·m (30–40 in-lbs).
