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
