I am using just the foam gasket from the UNI filter kit.
The OEM filter works fine as long as it is installed correctly. If you don't put it in right and make sure the bottom is seated properly it can easily lift and let dirty air by.

Been a couple weeks but CJ designs had a bunch at the time
http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/about-us...ir-filter-kit/

Probably best to call Craig just to make sure before ordering.

Well the mystery is solved.
After doing 2 days in the dirt I pulled my air box to find dirt and dust coating the airbox and stacks, like so many others with the new 2014 Adv. R and the S.
After 5 days trying to make contact with KTM customer service I finally got one of their customer service experts to call me back. He had no knowledge of any problems with the 1190 advís. I sent him pictures and he authorized a leak down test, which came out at 2% on the front cylinder and 3% on the rear cylinder. Which I take to be a good result.
He informed me it was my fault and that I was supposed to take measures before going off road. I ask if he could provide me with a list of what KTM felt were the measures that should be taken. He informed me that they did not have any list, but I was supposed to prepare the bike for off road.
I guess they forgot to mention this in all the ad campaigns and literature they have produced in the process of marketing this bike.
So let it be know, itís your fault not KTM.

Nightmare continues and sounds like ktm IS shaking their head at the UNi filter that may actually void your warranty as stated by people before.
KTM South Africa have extended the warranty by 12 months, they will not admit why but we as customers know. They fitting the DNA now free and my dealer is also fitting the Uni but at your cost with NO effect on the warranty as these are dirt bike people who race and live dirt...Uni works and FFS don't listen to the 20hp drop in power.

I removed KTMSA DNA shyte and fitted the Uni then I KNOW, the lid is sealed and the foam will stop any shyte coming in unlike the single race filter KTMSA are fitting and no lid seal.

This post is single handedly pushing me very hard away from this brand. What a bunch of fucking arseholes. No other bike manufacturer I know of has ever said this to customers. KTM's ADVENTURE bike that was portrayed in adverts as going across the dessert at speed needs to be specially prepared before going off the pavement.

WTF

Judging by your location you should stick more to the post below than to the one you quoted.

With all the BS and lies from KTM USA, isn't it time the USA-based inmates started a class action suit, based on "product not fit for the purpose sold" - i.e. "Adventure Bike" advertized as off-road and dirt capable? There's adequate evidence of BS and lies from KTM USA posted all over this forum, and @TDSurf@ has just encountered the latest of many.

Having said this, not every part of the KTM organization is as bad as KTM USA and the equally bad KTM UK. For example KTM AU, KTM SA and KTM EU seem to be quite responsible in resolving manufacturing problems /defects.

Robzorba et al...jeez...class action lawsuit? Are you f--ing kidding me? All I ever see you post about is others problems with this bike. Yes, there are a few issues just like almost every new model delivered. But instead of sticking a $80 unifilter in the bike which fixes the problem and riding, you all get on here and carp about suing the company. Ever wonder why we have dwindling options in the marketplace?

I know of one bike first hand who ingested a bunch of dust past the filter and he's getting it fixed, free.

Some of ya'll act like this is the first motorcycle to ever have issues...just ask BMW owners about permanently sealed final drives and f800 wheel bearings.

We're lucky, it's an $80 part that can be user installed and solves the problem. Try that with a final drive taking a shit.

Cut ktm some slack and just put the freaking uni in and go ride...

I know of one attorney that used the Consumer Protection Act here in South Africa and forced KTMSA to replace his 1190R bike due it not performing as advertised....they did and he traded on a new GSA1200LC......so it is happening.

say what? AFAIK our options in large adventure bikes have probably trebled in the past 4 years...

What pisses people off most, I believe, is KTM's ignoring of the facts in many countries
