SG250 Air Filter Replacement
Air Filter Replacement
|This section of the Owner’s and Service Manual addresses removal and replacement of the SG250 air filter. The SG250 uses an oiled foam air filter. We stock all parts for the SG250 motorcycle, so when you need a new air filter or oil for the filter, please call us at 800-884-4173 and we will ship these items to you.
You should check your SG250 air filter every 2500 miles. If it is dirty or clogged, it will reduce the motorcycle’s performance and you should replace it. You should check the air filter more often if you ride in dusty or offroad conditions.
Caution! Do not operate your SG250 without the air filter. It will degrade the motorcycle’s performance, it will cause the motorcycle to run poorly, and it will void your warranty.
|Access to the SG250 air filter is gained by removing the rear seat, the left body panel, and the filter structural support. Start by unbolting the two bolts at the rear of the seat, slide the seat to the rear, and lift it off the motorcycle.
|Remove the left body panel by pulling it outward from the top, and then lifting.|
|At this point, you will see the air filter housing and structural support. The structural support is held in the housing by three Phillips head screws.|
|Unscrew the three Phillips head screws.|
|Pull the air filter and air filter structural support out of the housing.|
|Remove the air filter from the air filter structural housing.
If the air filter is dirty or clogged, it should be cleaned and reoiled. You can filter with a suitable solvent, and then allow it to dry. After the air filter has dried, lightly oil it with air filter oil. Please contact us at 800-884-4173 to order air filter oil or replacement air filters.
|Assembly is the reverse of disassembly.|
