Click here for the instructions to remove the air cleaner to replace the filters.
Let me know if you have any questions.
As far as the air cleaner assembly itself it just lifts up off the motor.
Some models had a wire spring clamp at the back center of the air cleaner.
I don't think that's the case on yours

There was a wire clamp on the back, but I released it. I don't have the K&N filters until Friday, so I didn't pull it 100% of the way off, but feel comfortable that I'm not breaking anything lifting it out now that I understand the air boxes are intended to lift out with it once I disconnect the hoses.
