Guesswork was what I did when I installed my R1 carbs, thanks to the knowledge of some awesome dudes on here, which gave me the guts to do the mod myself, instead of handing the job to someone else. I'm not saying it's not good, it's just different.
Anyways, I'll contnue to look for answers.
Here is what I did for my "filter" Took half of the R1 intake and mated up with half of an aircooled fuel injected airbox and doubled up some window screen as the filters. Works great and almost looks like it could be a factory item.
On a side note:
Are any of you monkeys going to be making it to SOWO next weekend?? It would be interesting to get as many R1 carb setups together.
Mine fit no problem with filters, I just don't buy anything on eBay unless It's a known and respected brand. EBay sells lots of crappy products, and I learned that many years ago.They are cheap for a reason.
The set I have seem fine. But I can respect you wanting a known brand for something like an air filter. I dont even run filters. They hit my hood
So i was checking my timing, got the car warmed up and it cycled the radiator fans 2 times. The only time I saw the timing mark was when the dial on the gun was past 60. Where should the timing be set at?

people run open webers ALL the time up at the track. Every car ive seen at the vintage races with webers didnt have any filter on it. Id say 80% of people on here with webers run no filters also so I guess they all will be rebuilding their engine too? just sayin, don't knock something till you actually know

Hes made it clear he wants to run filters, so no need to attack anyone.
I will say, running filters vs no filters makes a difference in what jets you run. My car will not run right with the filters on, the slight restriction is enough to make it pull too much fuel.
The only reason I would go with a quality filter is if your carbs are tuned properly Nd your WOT all the time and fuel is atomizing out the front like they should the filters will break down eventually and I've seen filters do more harm than good. So id rather get a quality filter for that quality rather than believing they block out more particles

Any reusable paper style filter with k&n oil will be just as good as a k&n. Also keep in mind the dirtier a filter gets the more it filters and restricts flow. If you're tracking your car run screens if you want some kind of protection. If your carbs face the front don't run foam filters when its raining it'll suck up as much water as it wants. Paper does the same but not quite as bad. It'll also ruin the paper if soaks up enough water. I found if its raining my car only runs with the filters off. Not the best for the engine but I had to do it a couple times :/

just ignore ncbrock, he always talks out of his ass, half the comments he makes are completely meaningless.
now that we are dont conversating about filters, whats the timing should be at?
