checking on anyone having knowledge on the "net filter?" (5) pic attached. 1971 DT1E, I am trying to understand if the filter is concave to recess into the bowl or by the diagram it appears to be convex with a hole in the top, which kinda makes sense. Mine seems to be missing, for now I am using a flat screen, no hole but I do not see the value in it if the chunks are supposed to fall into the bowl. I would just make a new screen if I understood what it looked like and its purpose. I feel like it is convex with a hole in the top to let the chunks fall through? Thanks gents.

Most, after years of misuse and neglect, are missing or destroyed. Just put a cone-shaped filter in the gas line, and you're as good as new.

A little bigger than a penny but a little smaller than a nickel.

If you go to a " Smoke Shop " they have screens for their smoking devices that are pre-cut, all sizes for pipes and ready to rock. Just need a old school paper hole cutter. You know the kind. It's a cheap fix.
And YES..run an inline filter in case the screen has strands fall off. Good insurance in case!

Just thinking out loud, here. Would a screen from a faucet aerator work as well? Right size? Too small? I'll check that and get back to you all...

Yes James, it will. Just find a brass one. Most faucet screens have a little bit bigger mesh than the Smoke Shop screens.
Sure they will work !

I remove those half circle screens from the original petcocks. The plastic 1" screens will fit in the petcocks that are not 90 degree turn. Inline filters have replaced that old part that was never very effective to begin with.
My AT1 has triple screen protection. One inside the tank, one in the vertical petcock and one inline filter. Besides, it's more important the fuel tank is rust free and not coated with a milky protective product.

Just elaborating --

I choose to believe in Mikuni 's original design. Yamaha DID !
They work VERY WELL as designed if... used .

Ascot, Did you READ his post #1??
Your answers are all over the place. Wonder how you can be taken seriously.
