Which do you recommend and why?

I need to keep out fine sandy dust in the summer months when the trails are dry.

I use either stock or uni foam, given my riding conditions in the summer are generally dusty I like the longevity and ability to clean the uni many many times, however they say that it restricts flow just a bit. K&n is junk in my book they just allow too much blow by. The stock filter allows some blow by but I don't feel like its as bad as k&n so I run a stock filter in the winter because we have minimal dust. Nvr had any experience with twin
If I'm just doing drag races stock filter is in
Summer uni is in

So would you say the UNI filters as much or more dust than the OEM?

My primary concern is dust protection with airflow as a close second.

Uni, Twin Air, or OEM air filter?

We've ran both for years (UNI and Twin Air) in our banshee and YFZ 450. We've ridden in the California desert, Oregon Dunes and lot's of dusty trails. As long as you maintain them with a decent filter oil you'll be fine. For oil, we use the No Toil system (oil and cleaner).

UNI I would say keeps at least twice as much dust out as it is an oiled filter and I believe u can also get an outerware for them. If I were u I would go uni

Sounds good. I have a brand new UNI on the shelf I just want to make certain that is the best route. I have some UNI spray oil already so I'm covered there.

What is the best way to clean it? Is it as easy as washing it in the kitchen sink with dish soap or should I get the filter specific cleaner?

I believe V-force john had posted somewhere here that you get the most performance out of the stock filter. I personaly like the paper filters, they seem to work real well and with the foam outer filter on the stocker I got 2500 miles out f mine and it still wasnt too bad. I ride in most coal dust area.
Uni is a very good filter and also will work well.
Here's a vid of the kind of dust I ride in at times, (this was taken when i did a wolfsnout review). You can skip to the 3 minute mark for the dust.

I always just buy the uni brand oil and cleaner but they have other brands that do the exact same thing. I always spray mine with cleaner stand it up for 5-10min then take the water hose and spray it off then allows it to dry, oil it and your ready. It's pretty cool cause it can look like shit and after u clean, it looks brand new every time. Also some people spray the oil on very thick and that is not necessary all it will do is drip down in the air box I just spray a thin coat on

That looks about the same as the dust I deal with except our trails are only 6 feet wide and flanked with forrest on each side. There is open areas once and while but not many. Sometimes 10 miles without a place for the wind to clear the trail. That also reminds me to order my Wolfsnout.

Thanks Slyder.
