That's only a "feature" of the Cross bikes. The Hammer is good to go.

I need to install my victory hi performance air filter. the bike is about 2 months old so i've never pulled the tank.

Where is this "plastic strip" located? what does it look like? is it only glued to the bike? A picture would be nic

It is under the fuel tank in the front. You can see there is a space there between the tank and the frame. You need to loosen the tank so you can lift it a bit. The insulative strip has a slit that allows it to straddle the frame with the weight of the tank holding it down. With the tank lifted you can pluck it right off.

I can't find it now, but about two weeks ago someone posted a decent video...I think from Witchdoctor (maybe CycleOps) that showed exactly how to do this. Step by step process. Find that video and you're golden.
