Video below is in Spanish but should give you an idea (and put you off !  :001: ):


Video is for the earlier model (2011-14) but I doubt it's changed too much.

Out of interest, any reason why you want to swap it ?

It's under the tank, beneath a black plastic cover.

Why K&N? It has bigger holes which let more crap into the engine you know.
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

Not sure why you'd do this unless you intend on doing a mega amount of very dusty miles especially as the stock one is good for 16,000 miles. If you do decide to do it can I have your old one  :031:

I put a K&N filter on my old VFR800 FiX.  No measurable or noticeable difference in performance or economy, but in normal riding conditions you should only have to inspect it every 25,000 miles and it will probably only need cleaning every 50,000.  Given what a PITA it is to get at it on a CR, I can see one huge benefit of a K&N.

But no point changing it until the 16,000 mile service.
