Re: fuel and air filter change

Remove the seat bridge, then remove the fuel tank. Now you can get to the air filter. Turn the fuel tank on its side and use a strap wrench to remove the big plastic nut. The fliter will be obvious after that. Just get it in the right way and make double sure the clamps are tight.

Altho it isn't an LT, the procedure and the components are close enough to give you some idea of what you're working with. Just review and you'll see the similarity.

Click here, and check out some of the other info on that site. HTH

Re: fuel and air filter change

A tip when replacing the fuel filter: You'll see an arrow on the plate that corresponds with an arrow on the tank. Place the plate arrow just left of the tank arrow. When you tighten it will move into place instead of beyond. I also take a carpenter's crayon (or some type of marking thang) and mark the ring and the tank before I pull the ring. This will tell you basically what the torque is on reinstallation.

Talking Re: fuel and air filter change

Dale, the RS link that Dick provided is more than adequate for the Fuel Tank and Fuel Filter removal. The differences are minor, such as the fact that your '05 LT will not have the barbs connecting the fuel lines, it will have quick disconnects! Much easier! The pictures are very accurate concerning the Fuel Pump and Filter. Do take note of the arrow on the Filter for proper fuel flow!

Your seat bridge will need to come off as John said, and the long bolt which the article is referring to is one that goes through both the seat bridge and the Fuel Tank. It can be a bear to line up when you go to reassemble, so be patient!

Once you have the Tank off the Air Filter is a breeze with just four Phillips screws holding the lid on. Be sure to check for bugs and particles which can get into the Air Box, and vacuum them out before you replace the Filter.

It is amazing how much money you can save by doing it yourself. More money for Farkles!

Nope I don't, Dale. Thought I did, butt can't find it on this computer. If I run across it, I'll ping ya. I know you don't wanna wait too long, butt were I you, I'd hotshot a Clymer manual from Amazon so I'd have the whole enchilada when getting this deep into the wrenching. JM2C, Dale. Good luck.

Re: fuel and air filter change

thanks again guys,

I just completed the filter changes. It really wasnt that tough. I just changed the exhaust seals also, which was worse. I havent put the plastic back on yet, but I couldnt have gone this without you guys. I took a bunch of pictures. I will try to post them but I really dont know how yet.
