OMG, what a pain in the rear...changing an air filter on the xr 50.
Maybe my hands are too big or something, but I had the hardest time getting the filter off. Are there any tricks to this?

I actually abandonned the attempt, and will wait until I am stripping the bike down for modification. I was not able to get the darn plastic cover out of there, of course I didn't try the "force" method yet.

I don't think you can get that cover out of there. I just push it back as far as I can then slip my fingers in first pull out the metal cover that keeps it in place then pull out the filter. Not easy but not impossible either.
