    Posted: 09 May 2018 at 22:15
So...I spent a long frustrating afternoon trying to change the air filter in my 2007 Nevada. The shop manual never mentioned removing the gas tank, but after nearly breaking a couple plastic pieces I decided that was necessary. That helped, got all of the plastic junk off, managed to remove the 4 screws holding the air filter box lid on (now i have a 90* philips screwdriver in my toolkit) only to be completely flummoxed by trying to remove said air filter from the tangle of frame tubes, wires and cables. 

I really wonder if it's possible, or just a prank the guzzi designers played on us. This, right now seems like a ridiculously difficult procedure for a filter that should be changed every 12 months Wacko


Any tips or suggestions out there?

I was able to inspect the air filter and it looked pretty clean....i blasted it with some compressed air and managed to get all the crappy plastic junk back together, but sooner or later I'll probably need to actually replace that filter.....

hello, and I understand your frustration having tried (and failed) to do the same job on my brother-in-law’s Nevada.
I’m sure you’ll get some good advice from those on here more in the know, but I was told at the time to ‘smash the air box in-situ with a big hammer, extract the bits and fit aftermarket conicals’!!!

You have to remember this is Italian design, form over function every time.

But the good bit is, unless you happen to be in a very dusty area, the frequency of change can be extended.

Yes, basically all you have to do is remove the bike from the filter. LOL

this is great information , I've managed to do it a few times but it's a nightmare so to drop front of engine makes sense and might save on all the cuts my hands and fingers normal get  thanks OneandOnly .

I almost did smash up the original...not to fit an aftermarket but just out of a stubborn, "it must fit out of here someway' determination to finish the job.

Thanks for tips and sympathy, somewhat comforting to note that on this guzzi, air filter is a 'certified technician' type of procedure,lol!

It used to be a bit of a faff on my 2008 Breva but not that difficult and surely the two bikes are not that dissimilar. Baldrick is a very naughty boy.
