Anyone run a linkert with a velo stack or otherwise not filtered linkert carb? Have any issues in engine life or solutions like the Stromberg Mesh filters at mouth of carb that have worked well?

Have a rod that runs 6 Strombergs without filters mainly low-mileage street/drag car without issues... but the "H/D Flathead Geniuses" have all highly advised not to run the Linkert on a Flathead w/o some sort of filter. Is there a 1 1/4" screen or filter used to run the Linkert Horn Intakes?

Thanks in advance, sorry if it's a stupid question.

I ran one for years with NO problems at all. They do in Japan with the nuclear fall out with no problems also!!!!

I have a 1941 Indian Scout that has been running on New Zealand country roads without a filter since 1995. Aside from sucking my jeans into it every now and then I've had no issues at all.
Then again on an Indian side valve you could probably suck in a seagull through the carb and not notice a drop in performance:)

One grain of sand/small pebble *could* ruin your day. Just think about a pebble sitting on top of a ring and riding up and down on your piston all day, just makin' real good friends with your cylinder wall. <SHRUG>Up to you of course, but that doesn't sound like a party to me...

i've been running these without filters and i know for a fact that after a while your cilinderwalls gets scratches from the stuff the carb lets inside without the cleaner

i have been running a 45" with the org. round oiltype filter and that had no scratches after the same kinda miles i did without the filter bike !!

so its up to you on this one
i live 2 minutes away from the beach and there's lots of dust and sand overhere so for me running a filter is better ......but i have no kneespace on my custombuild bike than anymore ....
so i just need to check my pistons much more often on that one
