    Nice video but why do you remove the battery?

    One thing the video does is highlight how much easier maintenance is if you install a prefilter to the airbox intake. It means you basically never need to change the air filter element.

    Good question! In fact, I initially followed the technical manual. They instruct you to remove the entire tank, so you need to disconnect the sensors. At the last moment, I changed my mind when I realized it wasn't necessary. So yes, it wouldn't have been mandatory to remove the battery since I didn't end up disconnecting any sensors :p

    Good point for the prefilter ! Do you have some examples?

    Even if you you were unsure it would only require disconnecting the battery, not battery removal.

    Unfilter is probably the best known pre-filter. I fitted one at my 24k service after seeing how dirty my air filter was. Mine is an XRt so exactly the same for your XRx. :028:
