Good on ya mate!! I will definitely be trying it that way when it needs cleaning. Wow, latex gloves are gonna be a necessity, eh? I had the extra help of a hand on the inside of the airbox. Even then, I clipped in the top of the prefilter flange and couldn't get the bottom in. Had to pull it out and put the bottom right corrner in first before it would go it. Once I got it all in there then I just took the whole airbox out to get to the top of the motor, stepper, etc. Sheesh, what a dumbass. It went back together easy then. Then I fiddled with the spring thingy, wondering how it was supposed to sit. Guess it just keeps the sock from collapsing, especially around the abs tubing. Then I was thinking about pulling the battery and re-routing the main fuse link. Still gotta do that I guess. I also really kinda wanted to see what it all looked like in there. Valve check and plugs do look easy once you get all the stuff off the top of the motor. Kinda like a modern car - you look under tha hood and can't see anything that resemmbles an engine 'till you remove all the covers.
