Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Owners Manual: Air cleaner

The air cleaner element must be kept clean to provide good engine power and g1as mileage. If you use your motorcycle under normal low-stress conditions, you should service the air cleaner at the intervals specified. If you ride in dusty, wet, or muddy conditions, you will need to inspect the air cleaner element much more frequently.

Use the following procedure to remove the element and inspect it.

Warning


Operating the engine without the air cleaner element in place could allow a flame to spit back from the engine to the air cleaner, or could allow dirt to enter the engine. This could cause a fire or severe engine damage.

Never run the engine without the air cleaner element properly installed.

 

Caution

Clean or replace the air cleaner element frequently if the motorcycle is used in dusty, wet or muddy conditions. The air cleaner element will clog under these conditions, and this may cause engine damage, poor performance, and poor fuel economy.

Clean the air cleaner case and element immediately if water gets in the air cleaner box.
