If its just to replace the air filter, then you just need a phillips screw driver. Loosen all the screws around the perimeter and dont forget the screw in the center.. This is all dont from the TOP

It's not a clip, it's a rubber piece and it was probably missing as you have the screwdriver threw it already, it's nothing to worry about, it's just to cover the hole

In that pic he is going after the bands that hold the air box to the throttle bodies.

The pic tells all, shouldn't be a problem...get a bright light in there and you should have no problem locating it.

What is the reason for removing the air box? If removing the air box is eating your lunch you may want reevaluate the whole mission.

I'm changing spark plugs. btw, that screw in the center sucks. I have to go get a longer screwdriver to reach it.

Thank you, that might help now that I know a little better what I'm looking for.

Not sure if it's the same thing for your 750, but for my busa I had to use small allen wrench.

Did a little more research and along with the help of MH. I found out that GSX-R's usually have two types of clamps that hold the airbox to the throttle body. Some have 4 phillips screws, mine has 2 long allen head screws. Turns out I needed to get a long T-handle 3mm allen head driver and place it in the hole in the frame to reach the screws.

Got it out, thanks for the help. By the way, if anyone else is doing this and has a similar bike, there's little metal cylinder washer type things around the screws, the two long ones stay in place, but there's two little ones that actually sit in between the clamps that wrap around the throttle body. One of mine dropped into the bike and I had to fish it out so make sure you have all of them.

Mine had the 4 Phillips. Last time I left the the clamps screw face up to make it easier to remove and replace the clamps. I had finding the screws through those holes.
