Air Filter Cleaning
It is important to clean your air filter(s) as indicated in maintenance schedule for your model. Some models have a secondary air filter which should be cleaned along with the primary air filter.

  • Magnetic Tool
  • Magnetic Tray
  • Pliers
  • Shop Light
  • Recommended Foam Air Filter Oils: Maxima Fab-1 Spray-On Filter Treatment or UNI foam filter oil (following the manufacturers directions).
  • For the 50:50 mix, it's preferred for better air filtration to use gas & AGIP Filter Oil. If you don't have AGIP, you can use engine oil, Piaggio recommends using Selenia HI Scooter 4 Tech. However, this may not always be available, so you may use the same Full Synthetic 4T scooter oil used in your. engine oil change.
  • Time is approximately 45 minutes-2 hours depending on skill level (not counting filter drying time).
* Check your model's manual for specifics.
