If you live where the nice can get to you wing you've probably had them nest in your air cleaner during the winter. We live in the country and even with traps and poison, I've still had the little buggers nest in there.
So here's a fix they haven't been able to beat. From your local hardware store get a piece of 1/8 inch Hardware screen. about 6 inches square. You'll have strip the bike down to the air cleaner to get the intake of the air filter chamber off. Measure the opening of the throat it should be something 3" x 3" Measure to be sure. Cut a section of the screen 2 inches larger in both directions. If it measures 3" x 3" cut it 5" x 5". Then cut a 1 inch square out of each corner. You end up with a fat +. Place over the opening then fold the tabs over the lip of the opening and secure with a thin strip of yes Duct Tape. No more mice in the air filter.
The little buggers can fill the air chamber in just a few days.

We use the old screen wire from old air filters to make protectors for air inlets on cars, trucks and motorcycles. Here in Alabama you have mice and squirrels to deal with.

That would work, I just used what I had available and found it works well.
