I guess the foam makes me feel like it filters better.
from EVERYTHING Ive heard it does! I will only run foam. If you dont want to clean the filters as much use those PC outerware cover things. Or maybe panty hose.

Find a buddy who is running one, take it out and hold it up to the light. To me a used K&N looks like it has holes in it.
Clean filter = length of engine life.

I use K&N filter on my WR and it's great. It needs cleaning like all filters and also needs some grease to put on the sealing everytime you clean it but i had never had problems with dust. Yamaha dealers in Greece suggest and sell K&N filters for racing use. My opinion is that if you take proper care of the K&N is the best filter you can buy and it lasts longer.

K & N are great.....
if you want to dust your motor
Agree. I tried K&N years agoon an '85 XR350R. When I removed it the 1st time for cleaning, the engine side of the airbox was coated with a film of oily dust. I experimented with the amount of oil on the filter and the seal, no improvement. I have been using Twin Air and UNI since, no problems.
