CSF,
Having been down the 'fine screen " route on other motorcycles I can relate from experience that the air flow will be affected in ways you may not anticipate.

Air is like water and when you run water through a screen...like your kitchen sink spout, it gets weird. Guess I think it's a flow thing, maybe it's a speed thing.

Screen is restrictive in my experience in a way air filters are not.
Screens, holes and baffles are not the same.

Why? Not sure, may work for you OK and I will be wrong.
