Wethead Air Cleaner Changing Tip...
OK boys and girls, I thought I would post a tip when replacing the air filter.
So the last time (the first time), I did a 12,000 mile service on my RT, I spent about an hour leisurely removing the body panels, et al. I then spent something like 4 or 5 hours trying to get the dang air filter cover back on. Eventually I got it back on by putting in the screws and tightening them down, which aligned everything.
Well tonight I am back at it again.
When the last panel came off, when the cover was removed, when the new filter was in place, I gave a deep sigh, gritted my teeth a bit, aligned the shop lights, and prepared for a bare-knuckle brawl getting that damn cover back on.
Wasn't much of a fight.
At first it was putting up some spirited resistance, but then I pulled back on the gas cap a bit, and the cover went right into place.
Just. Like. That. It was over. Just like when that freak sold-out his fellow Spartans to the Persians in 300.
Let me say that again: If the cover is giving you fits, just pull back on the gas cap a bit while placing the cover into position.
Ok, you may go back to whatever Rule 34 program you were watching...
Those who say that it can't be done shouldn't interrupt those who are doing it.
Democrats are to America what mold is to bread.
