I've fitted the KTM one and it sorted the dust in the intake problem that the original paper filter had, I've also fitted a KTM open air filter cover and removed the snorkel. It goes like a rocket but the intake sound levels are so loud that I could not even hear my Akrapovic screaming behind me, so I've fitted the snorkel back.

I got fed up with trying to stop dust getting into the airbox. Eventually just ripped out the whole airbox and replced it with a washable K&N. Very pleased with the result and now I have a whole load of free space under the seat which I plan to turn into a toolbox.

How are the noise levels? Most who have done airbox mods complain that the noise levels are unbearable

hahah with the rally raid filter it sounds like the bike is growling at your crotch every time you open the throttle.

Just takes getting used to, with my Akrapovic it just added a nice throaty sound to it. Adding a power-commander and having some one in the know (wrench aka Julian) to adjust the mapping accordingly is a great idea too

Louder than normal, but I love the throatiness of the sound she now makes, it's certainly not unbearably loud. Gotta admit it's dropped my consumption level a bit, but also seems to have put a few extra horses onto the rear-wheel.
