Extra Screen Covers for Air Intake???

Anybody done a mod that keeps the larger insects out of the air filter? I'm thinking about small screens in front of the intakes to keep out the pesky 80 mph bugs that build up on the filter. (Maybe 1/2" in front of the intakes)?

No need for the 1/2". I just took a chunk of window screen and zip-tied it over the opening in the airbox snorkle. Works well.

Heavy must have learned that from his wife when bugs got in the dryer vent.
