Uni air filter or wait for K&N?

I've always used K&N for all of my cars and quads. I checked my local shop and they checked with K&N and they said they are currently working on a air filter for the 700xx, but no ETA as to when it will be available. I have never used a UNI filter, but my buddy had one for his 450r and said it came loose after a long day of riding was just laying in the box. Kinda makes me hesitate to get a UNI. Should I wait for the K&N?

Is it too dusty where you ride? If so then UNI is the safer way to go. The only way a UNI would come loose would be if it was not well installed. I have run nothing but UNI for 10 years and never a problem.

Super dusty, never rains here... My buddy is a quad mechanic, not sure how it came loose on his 450r. Maybe he was having a bad day... it does seem like a foam filter would be better for dust though. I've had a K&N on my 400ex for ten years with an outerwear with no issues.

I have a K&N, the easiest way to get it is the pro design kit on ebay. K&N will probably never make a specific kit since the filter actually clamps down on the rubber boot that hooks to the throttle body. That is where the Pro design kit comes in, They machine a metal insert to go inside of the stock rubber boot, then the filter can clamp down tight!

I'm really satisfied with UNI and its protection from particles but I dont like the way it fits on the actually housing. It always makes me a little nervous that its going to slid off. Do you guys get a real good seal or am I doing something wrong? I check the damn thing a couple times on every ride, maybe its just my OCD kicking in.

So my thinking is that it is the kit for a 06 450r. I use a 06 450r insert ring and 250r uni filters. The 06 450r Uni filter is very very much like the size of the stock 700xx filter.
