    Given the dust bowl that India is, air filter needs regular cleaning. Can some one please post the pics of how it should be done at home? :)

    Nice Video guide:up
    But use spanner of No. 8 to open the box.
    Using the method shown in video can damage the bolt head.

    Thanks!! But now that I know to take the air filter out.. How to clean it? Do I need to wash it using a water jet with pressure or just hit it with a brush or something so that impurities fall off.

    Hey Arun, I went to the local puncture repair mechanic along with the orange air filter. Took the pump used to inflate the tyres of bicycles and blew air over the air filter. I saw some dust coming out and it got cleaned. Then I further used a clean cloth and wiped it clean gently taking care that I don't use force and damage it. Then again I used the bicycle tyre pump.

    I reckon the pressurised air , available at puncture shops/fuel pumps would be a better bet.

    You can attach a valve (e.g the one used in filling air in footballs) in front of the air nozzle and blow the dust away.

    Its a tried and tested method and won't damage the filter.
