I have heard some people have removed the screen and used the fireproof filter and mentioned it gave just a little bit more pull at very high rpms. I wouldn't suggest cutting out the screen, just get a new cage from a YZ250 since they are the same only without the screen. I know cutting it could leave little pieces of wire and they seem to be as sharp as a razor!!

I cut mine out without any problems,just take a file afterwards and file the wire flush to the cage....Or get a YZ250 cage....Or I'll sell my cut out cage.$10.00 plus shipping??
