well, that's what i use, but it'sprob. not the best filter.... the water/moister can get in muh easier without the cover.

Jasper,

Yes it will run that how the old carbies were but liker painoman said not good for wet days without plastic cover as it will absorb moisture

i was trying to find the pic of the carby with the exposed foam and just a backing plate...anyway, it was what inspired this: http://www.motoredbikes.com/viewtopic.php?t=628

i'll be making a new one soon that has a "hood" on it, so far water has not been a prob, and i've been in the rain. it breaths great, you can feel the flow.
