I recently purchased a K&N filter for my new Rincon and after seeing and reading about how much dirt and dust passes through them, it’s coming off. I haven’t even gone on a ride yet with it, and I don’t trust it. I’m going to put the stock filter back on for now.

Either will work fine, I've never had an issue with the stock filters on a 400EX or 450R.
