Sounds like you could use a Yamaha Shop Manual.....Sorry no pics except for what's in my manual.

I'll be doing this for the first time tomorrow myself on my 650. I don't know how much different it is to the 1100 though, but maybe they are close.

After seeing the video, there is a few things that are similar to the 1100 but most are different.... I will have to get the service manual instead.

Did you loosen the clamps that hold the rubber boots to it?

One on each side.....just take a look, they are right there. You can see where they connect to the bottom of the air box. Should take you about a minute to do.
