None of my stock bikes will. Or, sometimes they'll idle, but you rev them up and they just go, "bluuuurp..." and try to die. I've had bikes that I'd try to start over and over and get nothing, then put the filter on and it fires right up and idles.

You can mess around with jetting to make them work, especially with kitted or modified engines, but every stock, untouched bike I've had won't run well, if at all, without the filter.

That's why they have those weird air filters.

The stacked screens come in different mesh patterns, and the old style oblong plastic covers have indented circles molded into the plastic (or plugs) so you can punch them out to change the air flow.

Really low budget, inefficient way to meter the air, when just sticking a screw in the side would be much more effective.

I hate those shitty carbs.
