It is under the gas tank. So you have to remove it to replace air filter.

Born to be wild so why not

Rob, if you do take the tank off, be careful with the fuel line disconects - they tend to go brittle over time & break. You can get metal replacements, which are much more durable, and it's a good idea to have them before you take the tank off. Check out THIS thread.

Hello,

My suggestion is that if you are going to do work on this bike with no experience, you should get any of the following supplemental training materials:

1) BMW Shop / Repair Manual

2) Clymers Service Manual for the LT: http://www.themotorbookstore.com/0892879920.html

3) Paul Sayegh Lt Service videos

good point wool i will have them replaced, but i think i am going
to get a dealer to do it as i once took a tank of a hayabusa
well i didnt know there wasnt a tap on tank to turn fuel off
as u know air filters on jap bikes were under seat easy to get
at .

May as well replace the fuel filter if you pull the tank (or have it pulled). It's inside!
