I've used oiled "media' (be it foam or fabric) filters on many machines as primary filtration but never as "final" or ONLY filter in extremely dusty conditions. This includes farm machinery, with thousands of hours on the engines. All ya have to do is compare the intake areas using only oiled media filters vs paper - it really shows the difference. A larger % of the really fine stuff gets though. The best set up is to use both. Most my dirt riding aint dusty in this part of the world - only when I head south or east does xtra filtration become necessary.
