How to Replace the Air Filter on a Suzuki Intruderby Robert Good
The Suzuki Intruder is a cruiser-style motorcycle. The air filter on all of the Suzuki Intruders are under the seat, at the rear of the seat. To access the air filter, you're going to need to remove the seat. The air filter is secured inside the air intake box by a metal rod and a wing nut. You will need to buy a new replacement air filter because the air filter that is inside the air intake box right now has sticky oil all over it that will keep you from cleaning it.
Wrap one finger under the lip of the seat in front of the gas tank and locate the plastic release button. The button will be 2 inches long at the edge of the seat and running the width of the seat's edge.
Pull up on the seat and remove it from the frame. Look inside the air intake box and locate the wing nut in the middle of the air filter. Twist the wing nut in a counterclockwise motion and remove the nut from the metal rod.
Pull the air filter off the metal rod and out of the air intake box.
Slide the new air filter onto the metal rod. Twist the wing nut onto the metal rod in a clockwise motion to tighten the nut securing it to the metal rod.
Replace the seat to the Intruder frame and push down on it until you hear a click.
