Air Filter Cleaning

Another very important maintenance procedure is to clean and lubricate your air intake filter.  When that thing gets dirty your bike will start running rough due to not getting enough air into the cylinders.  Its an easy procedure that anyone can do with basic tools.  If you have been doing your own oil changes you'll  already have all the tools necessary to do this.  The owners manual that comes with your bike shows this needs to be done every 5000 miles.  I clean mine with every oil change and that puts both maintenance procedures on the same schedule.
