thats how a lot of 4 strokes are, if it looks worn then replace it as well-if not leave it in place.

i soked it in my solvent tank and then rinsed it off and all it is is just layers of mesh. it cleaned up really good and didnt look worn or damaged in anyway so i just put it back in. But do you know what it is and what its purpose is?
