    I have two questions, if anyone here knows the answers- well, OK, I still have the questions, even if nobody know the answers. :D

    The parts books are showing different numbers for the 950 and the 990. I thought they took the same filter- no?

    Also I am wondering whether this statement: "This filter is made with our “XD” extra-fine weave pleated cotton for improved efficiency in dusty conditions." means they filter as well as OEM paper, or just better than the old type K&N?

    950 and 990 have different offsets but that is all my knowledge, I would also love to know as well about the XD stuff if they are good for gravel roads etc, just cleaned our paper filter today, would love to get a washable filter that filters as well as the stock.

    The filters between the two are different. This K&N might be better than their old cheese cloth material but you won't see me trying it. Oiled foam filters for me only now that they are available.

    The CPR set up uses oiled foam filters. I am running this set up.

    Oh, I thought you meant a replacement element to fit into the stock air box.

    I just finished a batch of base plates for the 990, in order to install an ITG foam filter. The 990 throttle bodies are 1cm farther apart from the 950 carb inserts. The dia is the same. However the OEM filters can tolerate this difference and can fit to either engine.
    Cheers.

    So does anyone know of a foam / oil filter that does replace the OEM filter within the factory box?

    We are not looking for more performance but more ease of cleaning and replacing rather than buying a new one every time.

    If you want ease of cleaning and foam get a CPR filter. Not to mention the extra power.

    Ha, just sold one to help pay for the repairs on Maya, so K&N etc still the only option from my research, fine for the road but less than ideal for dirt.

    Hmmmm thinking cap on.

    I will admit I know nothing about this product, but it looks sketchy to me. Way too thin for starters. To work right in dusty consitions, foam filters are constructed with thick layers of foam with different densitys all bonded together. Hard to tell by looking at just a picture, but that filter doesn't look right to me for true dusty conditions.

    It does look too thin.

    Also, the following quoted statement sounds kind of like the claims about the little propeller-looking gizmos they used to sell to put under automotive carburetors: "The incoming turbulant air is stablelized and accelerated around the edge of the airsplitter plate , this means greater volume evenly distributed throughout the airbox."

    Maybe it uses snake oil to catch the dust. :D

    Can the SE use the same prefilter as the adventures have?

    If so then that is your best answer.

    With it my stock filter is still good after 10K miles.

    Hi!

    any new info of this KN novelty, KT-9907?
    is it safe replacement for the original KTM-filter?

    KN promises only 1 year warranty for it, instead of earlier '1 000 000' miles warranty?

    will it let the dust to engine to wear it dead?
