Thanks for the review. I also have a full exhaust and fuel controller, both seemed to wake the machine up quite a bit. I believe I'll buy one of these filters and try it out. I do like the idea of not having to clean and oil a filter constantly.Since running my R2C, the Cat has been a monster. I also installed a full Muzzy exhaust and tuner, and I assume the filters additional air flow capability only helps. I beat up bad on my friends similarly modded XP900, and a tuned 900S.
It shouldn't need the outerwear.I purchased one last weekend and hope to try it out in the sand box this weekend. If fit snug and I also put a k&n outerware on it. My old rzr ran the paper filter and with an outerware I never had an issue with dust. I have heard the rzr guys have had great luck with these so I'm hoping for the same results. I got mine from rmatvmc.
I'm running a trail and thinking about doing the same thing I find the foam/oil filter just attracts more dust, are you running a snorkel too? That's the other thing I was thinking about installing to bring in cleaner air from higher up.I've purchased and will be installing a Donaldson next week. It was evident at Glamis that my cat was lagging, so I pulled the seats and firewall to get to the Evo installed Canister Filter and removed it. Amazing amount of sand and dust came out. My poor Ninja Kitty couldn't breathe. A few cats at Glamis were running the Donaldson and after talking with some owners and doing some research i decided to go that way; easy access and superior filtration. Should be a pretty easy install. I'll post a small write-up w/pics.

If you find a canadian source for a Donaldson set up let me know. I was digging around the other day and couldnt find anything on this side of the border.I'm running a trail and thinking about doing the same thing I find the foam/oil filter just attracts more dust, are you running a snorkel too? That's the other thing I was thinking about installing to bring in cleaner air from higher up.
There's no doubt that Donaldson makes a great setup. I think the issue comes when you're dealing with people who don't want to/have the ability to install an entire new air box and route everything properly. The R2C filter makes for a great stock replacement where no additional work is necessary.Check ebay/etc for "Donaldson G065411" or "Donaldson G065433". Those are the 2.5" in/out. They are the same filter, but the G065411 comes with a safety filter (P822769) that sits inside the primary one (P822768). Both can use 1 or 2 filters.
I believe the filtration with JUST the primary element is already exceptional.
