adding intake silencer to ysb8

Has anyone ever added an intake silencer to a yanmar ysb8? at present there is just a curved pipe wide open bends back over engine. Wondering if it would quiet down the engine let alone protect sucking anything into the intake.

Re: adding intake silencer to ysb8

How creative do you want to be? K&N makes a whole line of filters that will fit on the end of a hose.. I ran a 2.5" hose a couple of feet into a corner and put a round K&N filter on the end. It made a very noticeable difference in noise.
