Simota Air Filter

Has anyone used one of this filters? I'm considering buying one for my Versys, it's approaching the 12,000km service, which includes cleaning the foam filter...

To be honest, I'm not thrilled about the foam filter. I'm used to those filters, every scooter I've had had foam filters, my 2 smoke RXZ-135 had a foam filter, but that's about it, everything else has had real air filters. The Versys filter also seems to be overly small! Pleated filters have much more filtration area than a flat foam filter, so the Simota should have more filtration area than the stock filter.

I know, weird to be asking about a washable air filter when the stock one is already washable.

I thought you ran the pipercross. Why is it not recommended? I'm still running the stock one but just wanted to know.
