In front of the gas tank, behind the right front tire there's a plastic cover with 2 13mm bolts. Remove those bolts and you'll see the filter. They have different types of locking mechanisms now and it's kind of a bear to get your hands in there. You'll see the black fittings and a spot thats either blue, red or yellow(forgot which). Push in on the colored part and it should release the lock. Slide the fittings off the filter.

Any other questions, post em. I usually visit FF when I get bored and I have a 4 day weekend, so I'll probably look in alot.
