How to Change a Honda TRX350 Rancher Air Filter in 10 Steps
How often should you change your Honda TRX350 Rancher's air filter? At the very minimum, it should be replaced every time you change the engine oil.
However, if you want your ATV to perform at its peak, then you should inspect, clean and replace your Rancher's air filter after every couple of outings, especially if you ride in dusty or sandy conditions. To get the job done, all you'll need are a screwdriver, a replacement air filter, a can of filter oil and about five minutes of time to spare.

Honda TRX350 Rancher Air Filter Change
Step 1. Remove the seat by depressing the latch under the right rear side and sliding the seat back to release the clip at the front.
Step 2. Release the four spring clips from the airbox and remove the lid.
Step 3. Loosen the clamp from the front of the filter and remove the air filter assembly.
Step 4. Remove the foam air filter element from the inner air filter frame.
Step 5. Inspect the air filter element. If it's split, damaged, or clogged with dirt, it will need replacing. However, if your air filter is in good condition, it can be cleaned and reused.
Step 6. Take the new foam filter element (or the existing filter once it's cleaned) and spray it with foam filter oil. Completely coat the filter and gently rub the oil into the foam.
PRO TIP: Don't cut corners by skipping the air filter oil treatment. The oil traps tiny dirt and dust particles that would otherwise pass through the filter into your Rancher's engine, which increases wear and shortens the engine's lifespan.
Step 7. Put the foam filter element onto the inner air filter frame, being careful not to tear the element.
Step 8. Reinstall the air filter assembly into the airbox and re-tighten the clamp.
Step 9. Before you reinstall the airbox lid, inspect the rubber seal for any wear, damage or leaks and replace the seal if necessary.
Step 10. Reattach the four spring clips to the airbox lid, reinstall the seat and you're done!
