K&N filters were designed by offroad motorcycle riders. Their filters exceed OEM standards for particle filtration.
the K&N website says that they give you move airflow to the engine. maybe that can let more dust particles in?

This is from their FAQ page on the website.


DOES INCREASED AIRFLOW MEAN THAT MORE DIRT WILL GET THROUGH THE FILTER?
No. Most disposable filters are "barrier filters" which act as a physical barrier to dust particles. Once a dust particle covers a pore in the media, air can no longer flow through that space. K&N® replacement air filters are designed to absorb dirt and dust particles instead of physically blocking them, allowing the pores in the material to continue flowing air.
