AIR FILTER - Race or Road

Hello. I ride with air filter K&N Road, but I want to buy BMC RACE. Will the result be better?
Does anyone know if they allow dust?

The result will be less money in your wallet only I suspect.

It comes down to what you are willing to spend. I ran both air filters and prefer BMC. All my vehicles have K&N.

In most cases Aftermarket air filters Will allow for dirt dust and debris to pass through,
OEM air filter will not & is what is recommended.

As indicated above, the WSBk and EWC teams I asked about this, run Honda OEM air filter due to superior particulate filtration - their race engines just last longer and make more constant power with the stock filter.

Didn't want to be the first to post, but OEM paper filters are best.
