Air box removal

I am new to KLRdom and need help. Picked up a 2001 KLR650 and after doing my usual checking I found a hole melted in the bottom of my air box. Carb is plugged up and the bike is back firing and running very lean. Pipe gets very very hot really fast and so,,,,,the melted air box. How do I remove that air box to either replace it or try to patch it? Please give me your advice. I just don't see how it comes out of the frame.

Unbolt the top of the subframe and removing the muffler will allow the subframe to pivot back to give you access to the airbox. It also makes removing the carb much easier.
