Air filter screen

Has anyone pulled the screen from the air filter frame to get a boost in air flow?

Is the screen there to prevent a backfire from cooking your air filter? Or is it just one of those items Honda installed to control air flow and fuel in a stock application.

Any thoughts???

Mine is gone...I noticed no power gain in "seat of the pants" but it can't help airflow for sure...besides, if you are backfiring into the airbox (the reason the screen is there) then you have jetting or engine troubles you need to fix.

I don't have any problems burning air filters... I bet the Team Honda bikes don't have them either :-)
