The white plug at the right front corner of the fuel tank is for a 5th gen with CB. If you don't have a CB, it hangs loose waiting for you to buy a CB and plug it in.

Things that can cause reverse to not work:
- side stand down
- clutch in and in gear

Things to check that can cause less radio volume:
- mute button in
- turn the volume up
- AMB (ambiance) needing reset
- AVC (auto volume control) needing reset

If the battery was disconnected, the AMB and AVC will need reset.

All 5th gens come with CB buttons. The actual CB radio and antenna is required as an add'l purchase to actually have a working CB. The second antenna, the one on the left side, is for CB. Do you have a LR antenna ???

Did reverse work prior to you doing an air filter change ???

Unfortunately, your air box needs replaced.
