Does removing the backfire screen really do anything ? Thinking about taking it out

It’s not a world of a difference. But it does let the air flow a little more freely. Could help inprove throttle response.

Said to improve air flow, saves a little weight too.

I used an RM250 cage in my RMZ450 (identical cage just without the screen)
Didn't notice much difference, but no harm in giving it a go.

I bought a No Toil basket with no screen and use the NON flammable filter oil and filter. I was worried about starting a fire in case of a backfire.

I had a 2012 RMZ450 I did this too, and it did improve throttle response a tiny bit, if you aren’t worried about backfires or riding in state parks, you might as well do it because it is free

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

It will give you a tiny bit more throttle response, and as an added bonus you can stay warm this winter!
