Are you just going to run w/o an air cleaner? Doesn't that shorten engine life?
Real men don't need air cleaners! It gets parked in the garage, it doesn't rain in SoCal and I don't put a ton of mileage on it, so I don't expect it'll be an issue. Whiplash has never run filters on his either, and I got a ride in it a month or two back, and the thing still screams.
I just put screens on them to keep anything big out.
I'll keep an eye on the oil and see if I can get a sense of it getting dirty more quickly.
Please let us know how it goes. It doesn't rain that much here in Utah either, but we definitely have dust... I was under the impression that air cleaners can be a fire hazard if the webers aren't tuned correctly.
It does look great, by the way!
