I think foam is much better suited for off-road. I use the filterskinz on my foam filters. Just started doing that and it works pretty good.

Part two- As to how the K and N filter filters? Yes there are hole that you can see threw on this filter. David Vizard explained that this filter works by actually sweeping the air. What I mean by this is that there a oiled fibers that sweep the air as it passes threw that filter. This according to David Vizard is why K and N can get away with the a filter that you can nearly see through. In all cases he told me that so long as the K and N filter is the right size for the application you will not notice a decrease in horse power. He told me that this in not true with any other filter. Now I will admit that we did not talk about oiled foam filters.
As to what I am going to do is buy a K and N and use there "outer wear" (Filter Skin) on my bike. I cleaned my Foam filter the other day and put it back on and started the bike with out the seat on it. I reved the bike a few times and noticed the filter really impoding on itself. I can't get that out of my mind as to how restictive that foam filter is. Now I will admit that it is a stock filter.
