R2C air filter

What are your thoughts on the R2C air filters. I'm looking to replace the OEM paper..and install the R2C with the pre filter bag.. I'm looking for a high quality filter that will do a better job than the stock one..I'm Not looking for a performance upgrade...not looking for better flow, just something that keeps the dirt out of the engine . Bonus is that it is reusable.
What about warrany??? Will this void it ?
Machine is a 2018 sportsman 570eps.
Thanks...

Recently upgraded both bikes to R2C(and no they are not out of business)and did 1 week up at Jericho State Park. Can’t comment for the long haul but so far looks good. Certainly didn’t notice any reduction in performance. Back up tomorrow for Atv Festival.

I don't have any experience with the R2C filters, but have had nothing but great luck with UNI foam filters. Very much reusable too. Just wash out the filter with warm soapy water, let it dry, soak it good with filter oil, and you're good to go. You can reuse them indefinitely as long as you take care of them.

BTW I’m not sure that anything is “better” than OE paper filters. I went with R2C so I wouldn’t have to spend $30.00 a pop and still have a clean filter. What do mean “void the warranty”?

I don’t think so but I’m sure they’d try.

Unless they can verify that A) there was debris that got in the motor, and B) that the filter caused it, they'd REALLY have to be looking for a way to not honor the warranty on your machine. JMO

From what I can see they are a knock off of the K & N filter. If that is the case STAY AWAY. KN filters are great where you have LITTLE to NO dust. We operate our bikes where dust is the only thing in the air. The person in front of you is kicking up a dust storm. You look behind you and all you see is dust. This is not the case with your auto. The best replacement is a FOAM filter and still be cleanable. I lose some performance but not the engine.

R2C is nothing like K&N. They are not oiled like foam filters.

R2C has two filter offerings - one is paper and the other gauze (like K&N) - if you have the gauze filter and do not oil it, yes the dealer will void the warranty for dust inclusion damage on engine parts, but the warranty will still be good for other than engine damage.
