Do a search here. Some have cut open the oil bath housing and installed a paper element, others have found aftermarket air cleaners,, and some of us like the oil bath air cleaner.

Barnabas,
Is it possible that hud's carb is running in a "borderline rich" condition? That installing the air cleaner is putting it in a choke condition? Just thinking out loud. I had a four wheeler that absolutely wouldn't run without the air filter installed.

Hit the search tab at the top of the page and search on bath and I believe the first thread that comes up has pictures with instructions on doing that. It also tells you which filters will fit afterwards.

It could be the oil bath filter screen is clogged with crud. Might just need a good cleaning. There should not be a big difference between filter and no-filter.
