There is enough area when you've got it spread over the entire air filter that it's probably no worse than the air filter itself...not so with the 3x3 opening.

theres no way that filter would restrict the airflow by more than 10% over the 3x3. it certainly hasn't droped power and fuel econmiy is as good as ever adventure riding. IMHO
Relax and enjoy the journey, not just the destination.
