Shane, I doubt it matters, but that last run I made last sat was without an air cleaner. I let the motor cool down too much and she would not fire, I liked to burnt the starter up and in a mad dash ripped the hood off and squirted some gas down it to light it off, in a hurry to get to the lanes I left off the air cleaner.
Made no difference in performance with 142 mph wind flowing over the carb.
That said I'm a big fan of an air filter, as long as it is not too close to the carb vents and of proper size. I have one I'll lend ya, but you'll have to pull the hood off.
