One factual report on the K&N was that, on a bench flow test, it flowed less than the stock filter. Opinions from users were that it did not filter well, allowing dust to pass and that it clogged quickly.
I spoke with a gentleman earlier this week who had removed his K&N and replaced it with a Uni. His immediate reason was that the K&N filter was poorly constructed, the cap having become loose, and that it did not seal properly to the air box.
Interestingly, this doesn't seem to be one of those issue where there is a camp of K&N lovers and a camp of Uni lovers. It's a general consensus that KLR riders don't like K&N.
My advice would be to use it, paying attention to its fit, cleanliness and general state of repair for its useful life, then either revert to the stock filter or go with a Uni.
