    I followed that same video step by step, and it does work.... it's not fun, but even I can do it.

    A company which made the valve checks one of the easiest to do and we have to go thru this PITA to change out an air filter, really, no way should it be that much trouble... takes 10 minutes to change out an air filter on a bmw g650gs.

    It is a pain, but I would suggest a K &N or BMC. That way you would only have to check it every 25,000-50,000 miles depending on where you ride.

    Even with the vid speeded up at the end...... in still looks like a PITA! Methinks the dealer when it comes time.

    Yeah, PITA. But, once a year you get to know your NC a little better.

    15 minutes in my Tenere.

    Looks a LOT easier than on a Gold Wing with an air bag!

    If the bike runs fine, MPG good like the day you bought it... Don't worry about the air filter... No?

    I've done the air filter twice now. It's what I call a fiddly job, but I don't mind it so much. ...unless it's 110+ outside, and a similar temp inside my garage...

    I would rather do the air filter than check or adjust the valves on this bike, and this bike is cake, relatively speaking, for valve checks. They should still use hydraulic lifters, but as far as manually-adjusted valves go, this bike is super easy.

    Are you folks seeing significantly dirty air filters at the Honda specified intervals?

    Based on my riding style, riding environment, and observing the size of the air filter relative to the engine displacement, I've decided to inspect mine at 24,000 miles.
