GSXR Airbox Removal

On my 2008 GSX-R750, I thought I had to loosen the (4) screws behind the airbox attached to the throttle body in order to remove the airbox. Outer two were easy, but I ended up stripping the two center ones.

However, on the manual, it says I don't even need to loosen any of them. Airbox is on pretty tight though. Just want to make sure that someone with a K8/K9 (even the 600 I'm guessing) has been able to do this, before I yank the out of this air box to change out my spark plugs.

there are no two center ones. ones you access through the frame are ONLY ones. its one screw per 2 boots. so no centers one to screw up. maybe your undoing the throttle body. check what your or up. make sure u loosen center bolt at top of box. fyi

^What he said.....If its the first time coming off, you may have to give it a good size tug to "break the seal" with the TB's

Put some wd 40 on the boots when you out it back on. Makes it easier to slide them all on
