    Temperature at 42, so I took a short ride. Also got the Goldwing out, passed 5,000 on it.

    It is -9 degrees here this morning and getting colder throughout the day. Not going to ride today! Forecast is -18 degrees tomorrow.

    Went into the garage for something and walked by the bikes. Thought Id see how the NC battery is doing during this Wisconsin cold snap. Started right up. Sigh...

    The dealer called and said my dash is fixed - had it 3 weeks. They gave me a discount putting tires on which was cool. To bad my trailer is snowed into the back yard and my riding mower does not have chains to drag it out. Its -2 here good grief

    Coldest ride of this Winter. At 33F it is the coldest I would go here due to the frost/ice.

    tore down the front fairings to get at the dang air cleaner in record speed! only two hours this time around

    noticed my old filter smelled like petrol, is that indicative of a problem or is that due to the filter being oiled?

    It's normal for a used air filter to have the smell of gasoline in it. It sits above the intake tract that has fuel/air mixture remaining in it when the engine is turned off.

    Do you have a service manual to detail the steps for removing/changing the air filter? It's about a 30 minute job on 2012-2015s coming down from the top after removing the maintenance cover, couple of pieces of fairing, and moving the center part with the lock out of the way.

    Ah, that makes sense. One less thing to worry about.

    I do have the NC700 manual and the Common Service Manual. I haven't been able to find official numbers of how long it's supposed to take, but I can list the steps out. If you're especially curious I can snap some photos of the manual. The 16/17 variant fiddled with the front end quite a bit from what I understand. Most of the accessories for the front are not compatible with the 12-15 models, much to my wallet's disappointment.

    To remove the air filter, first remove:
    -Side Panel (screws and tabs)
    -Front Side Cowl/Middle Cowl (clips, few different kinds of bolts, tabs, grommet slits)
    -Inner Upper Cover (clips, srews, tabs) - this part required me to wiggle and flex the cover around in ways I suspected were Bad.
    YOLO only once \_(ツ)_/
    -[skipped] Windscreen (bolts, washers)
    -[skipped]Meter Stay (electrical connection, bolts)
    -Center Cover (bolts, fiddle with cables but don't remove)
    -Air Cleaner Assembly (screws) and then reverse order to reinstall

    I discovered I accidentally two steps while typing this post

    The air was clean and clear and the lighting worked out perfectly

    Made a cross state ride to Naples. Missed the rain. Very wet winter, supposed to be dry season.
