Any other filters for Dinan air box?

Has anyone used any other filter for their dinan air box, other than the dinan filter? Time to change filters.....I'm sure there are many that might fit, but is their any that have an advantage over the dinan filter? Washable, better flow etc....?

With the amount of time it takes to wash and dry the filter, you're better off just replacing with a new one. Having said that, the only thing that should be considered for a replacement is fit and surface area of the filter. For what is worth, the intake interface tube is circular and is 4" in diameter. If you can find a filter that fits within the airbox (I'm assuming you have the airbox version) with a 4" tube, you're golden.

Edit: I'd asked the same questions to myself when I was looking for a replacement last year. But in the end, I did not have enough the time to find out the necessary measurements and ended up just purchasing a Dinan direct replacement.
