Just picked up an '07 Honda 250 Recon with just over 5 hours time on it (shortly after the guy got it, he realized he actually wanted 4 wheel drive - I got it for a song - $2,400.00!!). Anyway, reading the Owner's Manual, I found, in the Maintenance Schedule, a note that the Centrifugal Filter and Filter Screen should be "serviced by your Honda dealer". Well, he's about an hour away, so I'm wondering if anyone knows where said filter/screen is located.

My Clymer manual says service 200 hours. It also says the crankcase halves have to be split. I probably would not spit them just to clean the screen unless there are other warning signs. I have rode much longer than 200 hours without cleaning. However, my manual only covers through 2002. Happy riding.

Holy mackerel!! That's so un-Honda'like, for sure. They're generally a model of simplicity. \:\(
