Air filter

So I've seen some of you lot talking about replacing the air filter (and other filters?) with K&N filter and what not.
And with the Rebel 500 being my first bike I think, sure, probably not a dumb idea.
But I've searched the handbook up and down, left to right, and I can't find anything about changing the filter on it.

So where and how do you do it?!

Could someone perhaps post a somewhat walkthrough of this? Preferably with pictures!

It's in the manual.. don't remember which page, though.

It's behind the left side panel... disconnect a wire and a grommet/clamp thingie to get stuff out of the way.. take off the air cleaner cover... take out old filter... then reverse to put everything back together.

Do you have a glossary/reference in the back of the manual? If so, look for "air filter," "air cleaner," "filter," etc... I don't recall exactly what it's called.

Honestly, the most difficult part is just getting everything out of the way so you can remove the cover. The grommet/clamp thingie (can't remember what it's called) is supposed to be removed by applying pressure to opposite sides to compress it... but it's surrounded on 3 sides where it's fastened.

Otherwise, it's just disconnecting the wiring harness so you can move it out of the way, and I think there were 3 screws securing the air cleaner cover. The filter itself pops out fairly easy.

Just went through the book one more time, just in case.
But no... The only thing mentioned, and I mean ONLY thing, is that when cleaning the filter you're not supposed to use a compressor and blow it clean, since that can damage it. And that's bloody it folks!
My book covers just about anything else I might want to know about the bike, but not in regards of the air filter!

Apparently, sertain things are meant to be serviced by the dealer only.
In my book, in regards of air filter service it says: "Do not perform the maintenance. Should be serviced by your dealer."
And that's it. So yeah, no walkthrough for me.
But ok, guess I'll probe around on my bike when the time comes and figure it out. Thanks CueBaller!

If the moderators don't object, maybe someone could take pictures of the relevant section of the manual and post it here?

I can post some later, but it'll be a few hours before I get home from work.

I would love to have that!
Shouldn't be a problem if you PM me them?

True. If someone else doesn't get to it first, I'll take pictures when I get home.
