The photo says it all:


This filter can be inspected and replaced without using any tools and best of all, it can take only a minute. Part of the spring cleaning process.

The filter is located on the driver's side rear cargo area. You can remove the small panel without tools.

Sorry but I do not smoke. You can attempt to vacum your filter to clean it. This is just a particle filter.

After 14,000 miles driving in the past (almost) year, this is what my hybrid battery filter looked like:


The owners manual recommends inspection at 10K (miles) and replacement at 20K. This is a particle filter and some owners use a K+N modified filter for this use with cleaning every so often.

Where can i find the K&N air filter for the hybrid battery?
For future reference, the K&N part number is YA-1602-U, an engine air intake filter for a Yamaha motorcycle. You need to modify it by trimming off part of the sealing flange.
