Install air filter before running engine. Failure to do so can draw debris into the engine and could result in engine damage. (00207a)
See Figure 1. Clean the air intake screen as needed.
Do not cover or restrict the air intake screen. Certain tank bags or accessories may cover or restrict the air intake screen. This may reduce power and performance.
See Figure 2. Remove air box cover and air filter cover and inspect filter element at proper mileage intervals. Refer to Maintenance Scheduling → Regular Service Intervals: Buell Models → Regular Service Intervals: 2006 XB Models. Inspect more often under dusty conditions.
