It does look too thin.

Also, the following quoted statement sounds kind of like the claims about the little propeller-looking gizmos they used to sell to put under automotive carburetors: "The incoming turbulant air is stablelized and accelerated around the edge of the airsplitter plate , this means greater volume evenly distributed throughout the airbox."

Maybe it uses snake oil to catch the dust.

Hmmmm thinking cap on.
Can the SE use the same prefilter as the adventures have?

If so then that is your best answer.

With it my stock filter is still good after 10K miles.

Hi!

any new info of this KN novelty, KT-9907?
is it safe replacement for the original KTM-filter?

KN promises only 1 year warranty for it, instead of earlier '1 000 000' miles warranty?

will it let the dust to engine to wear it dead?

I called K&N to ask about this. Of course, I expected them to brag it up, but I wanted to hear their claims.

They said that this filter is designed for off-road use, and that it is thicker than previous designs, and is safe to use in dust. But they also said that they had not heard of other K&N filters passing dust, so....

I have one on order, and I am withholding judgement until after I have tried it.

As an experiment, I plan to put a layer of foam over it for a few miles, to see how much dirt gets through it. I guess I will have to do the same with a stock filter for comparison.

I found one on Amazon for only 53 bucks with free shipping, but the drawback on the deal is that it won't get here for another month. Why? they didn't explain.

Ok, we bought the MW-R filter and a pre cleaner from Zen Motorcycle in AZ.

I too will report my finding for those who are interested, I like the idea of an oiled foam and a precleaner to take out the birds and goats.

Will provide photos and all, we do a combo of shingle roads, small off road and normal roads, all the time in crud of some sorts.

I always clean the air filter at oil changes so at 3000 miles or 5000 km UNLESS we are in very dusty condition like we found in Mexico with 150 mm deep buldust.

Are they looking at one piece or two for both throttle bodies?

They are in the testing stages at the moment making sure that the bikes computer can handle the extra air flow, they have a two piece filter and a one piece, the two piece seems to be the one that works best and allows better airflow. Will post up some pics once they have the finished product, should be next week sometime. They have a new lazer cutter that is really ground breaking technology and is allowing them to do things they could'nt before.

Seems like lots of new options now.

We bought the MW-R simply for ease of cleaning and reinstalling while RTWing and not worrying about trying to find/buy a filter when we need it, they claim HP gains but unless it is jetted to suit I don't expect anything much.

Hopefully between that and the pre filter we will have a good combo.

Keen to see what unifilter bring out too.

In my experience, K&N filters work best in boats and snowmobiles. Good for filtering out the sticks and rock and larger insects.
