The finished product
1: Undo the accordion clamp, using a flat-head screwdriver.
2: Remove the air cleaner box top and take out the stock filter.
3: Once the filter is out there will be three bolts on the
bottom of the box. They're pretty tight in rubber gaskets. Use

8: Slide the K&N air filter on the other end of the hose
