04 crf 250 air filter screen

I had taken out my screen on my airfilter screen because i had seen on the website that you gain more power that way. Anyway, I just wanted to know if the bike backfires through the carb will the airfilter catch on fire???

The best way to avoid air filter fires (with or without screen) is to avoid flammable filter cleaners and oils. If your filter is soaked with flammable stuff and is exposed to flame, there's no way a metal screen will keep you from having a Bike-B-Que.

As for the purpose of the screen, I suspect it's to prevent the filter from being blown apart by a backfire.

I have run filters without backfire screens since the beginning simply because my bikes never had them and have never had a problem with fires. I wouldnt worry about it.

thnx alot guys
