The problem with filter discussions in general is that most filter makers will not state what the filtration rate of their filters are. Scotts is an exception with their stainless filters. They state the filtration rate. Not all paper filters are equal. K&N I'm sure is better than some cheap knock off brand of paper filter made in China or somewhere else.
My experience has been that most filters will do an adequate job if you replace them often and keep your oil fresh and clean. I still have a 1986 Yamaha TT350 that I bought new. It was never raced but has many hard miles on it. That bike has only known the brass filters.

Kinda depends on brand and where you get it. But 40-80 fun tokens seems to cover them all.
I have been thinking about getting one of those filters. How much are they?
