K&N Air Filter vs Stock Filter

Does any one knows what is the different between the following to K&N Air filters?
http://find.powersportsplus.com/?q=*...R%25CBR1000%22

Bike is used daily for street riding only.
1. Would I need to re-set the ignition mapping because of the greater amount of air that will flow into the air box after installing this?
2. Is there a better aftermarker air filter?
3. Would you just use the stock air filters instead?

If you want a good reusable aftermarket filter, I would choose BMC (street version) over K&N. You'd see optimal benefits with remapping, even with a slip-on, but not as much as you would with a full system. What are you running exhaust-wise?

Thanks, d207gp, I'm running a stock exhaust, on a fully stock street '06 1KRR. Would I have to re-map, or can I just run the filter with stock setup?
And is there a specific recommended BMC street version model? I found this on BMS website:

You won't get any performance benefit with either filter.

i pulled the screens off the stock and noticed a difference. then i tried a set of bmc race fillters and didnt notice much so i went with a set of k&n race filters and honestly they all felt the close to the same as the stock without the screens... there was slightly more pull off the low rpms but nothing to brag about

question is - isn't any change of air amount to the air box, e.g. via air filter modification or aftermarket replacement, requires also changing the amount of fuel in the air-fuel mixture?

more air flow = more dirt in your engine - if your not chasing a championship its not worth it
