RX-4730XD - K&N Universal Air Filters, Universal X-Stream Clamp-On

The top has an additional air filtration area. Put a filter wrap on and you have a great filtration system. Of course, I have a custom ram air airbox with large bore intake in a straight shot from filter to throttle body..

I've thought about getting a K&N filter but a little skeptical. I've been told while riding in the kind of conditions that i ride in (sometimes dusty sometimes muddy) they have been know to allow small particles to get into the engine. Any of u guys ever had this problem?

I've heard the same, but almost everytime it can be traced to improper setup or maintenance. A very large majority of off-road racers in the SCORE and BITD series use K&N Filters (and their engines cost $35-75000), so I think that says alot.

I'm not overly fond of the AC airbox setup, nor the fact that the air intake is behind the seat right were the dust is the worst on these machines. The first thing I would do (which I did prior to the total rebuild) is change the intake tubing to collect air from the cabin area or higher....

Yea i've snorkeled mine up between the seats and just over head high, and just under the roof of the cab. With that said, i might be ok to run the K&N filter. I would really like to, cause i've heard they breath soooo much better. = better throttle response and a little mo power= me
