3.
Assemble the air cleaner cover insert (9) to the air cleaner cover with two chrome screws (10). Tighten securely.
NOTE
Install the rain sock over the air filter element in wet or rainy conditions to prevent water intrusion.
  • If parked, water could enter the engine.
  • If moving, enough water could be sucked in to cause engine misfiring.
Slip the rain sock (11) over the air filter element under these circumstances.

MAINTENANCE
Air Cleaner Element Maintenance
This kit requires the use of Air Cleaner/Degreaser (Part No. 99883-88T). It is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
NOTE
This is a dry air filter. Do not apply oil to the filter element.
When servicing the air cleaner, apply Loctite 243 - Blue to the threads of all fasteners.
  1. See Figure 3. Remove the air cleaner cover (8) and inspect the filter element (7) every 8,000 km (5000 mi), or more often under dusty conditions.
  2. Clean the filter element (see Figure 2 ):
    1. Remove and wash the element by immersing it, on edge, in a shallow pan containing enough Air Cleaner/Degreaser (1) to cover no more than three-quarters of the depth of the filter pleats (2), about 9.5 mm (0.375 in). Do not allow dirty solution to get inside the element. Carefully "roll" the element in the solution around its perimeter (3) until the entire outer surface of the filter pleats has been soaked.
    2. Remove the filter element from the cleaner/degreaser. Allow five minutes for the cleaner to dissolve the dirt.
    3. From the inside out, rinse the element with cold water. Shake off excess water. Allow the element to air dry. Do not dry with compressed air.
  3. Install air cleaner filter and cover.
