Not sure if this is necessary or advisable [ like it's too restrictive ] but I see it being done and Can am's and other machines along with Kawasaki..


Anyone find anything like this for a KRX and what are you thoughts?

On heavy equipment or ag equipment that run a Donaldson setup, the inner element is generally a "safety" element primarily intended to prevent stray dust from getting into the intake tract during servicing of the main element, and are made of different material. Over-servicing air filters is a big no-no in that world, and that's why they have an air restriction indicator, or "filter minder". I don't recall seeing any with two pleated elements, though.

I've no desire to restrict my air flow or to rethink Kawasaki engineers who are way smarter than I am. It's just beyond exceptionally dusty in the south west to the point of often times hard to describe and pictures don't really convey the extent. Kinda like the way folks in constant wet/muddy areas can't understand dust, I imagine similar to the way us in the desert can't quite understand the mud.

Where are you located? I’m in the southwest too.

The good Donaldson setups are cyclonic, and accomplish most of what the S&B does without any fans or add on stuff. But the S&B does work, for sure. One of the big pluses I am hoping for in shopping the KRX against the Talon R is NOT(I hope)needing a $400 electric air cleaner.

I just replace my air filters more often. No dust beyond the filter so far

Donaldson canisters/filters are cyclonic in that they try to circulate all incoming air around the entire filter, but they do nothing of the sort like an S&B in terms of eliminating dust/dirt BEFORE it reaches the filter. I have seen guys in the desert go over a year on a stock paper filter when using an S&B. If you ride a lot of desert it will pay for itself in a few years as those Donaldson filters are not cheap.

I just heard from Melissa at S&B particle separator and she told me they will be releasing a system for the KRX 1000 in November part number 76–2015 . I had one on my can-Am X.3 RC and had 6500 km on it and still running the original filter that came on it. That filter still looks brand new. I will be getting another one for my KRX once they’re out.
