Not to set this thread adrift, but SS mentioned a point I've seen posted more tha once and more than one place - that K & Ns pass more particulate matter than paper filters.

I have not seen definitive proof either way. I ran K & N on the Ducatis, and have one on the R 80 ST.

To hedge my bets on the ST, I bought a sheet of Uni Filter foam and cut out a prefilter that fits across the top of the K & N. I can sleep well knowing that I have top notch filtering. AND, the prefilter and filter are cleanable and reusable. The Uni Foam didn't even force the need for idle mix nor needle adjustment.

Works for me.
