I tried a Ryco filter in my NW, but it caused a vibration in the airbox so I went back to OEM. A few other people around the forum here have experienced the same thing.

Yeah I've found the rubber seal around the filter on ryco ones is slightly thinner and therefore when you clamp the top of the air box back on, it's not clamped down tight on the rubber. This causes vibration in the air box and would probably be letting unwanted particles through too. I'll be using Mitsi ones from now on.

Donít use a Ryco air filter! They donít fit properly and cause dust to get past. When you look at the ryco vs genuine the genuine one has a thicker rubber seal.
You may get the ryco one to fit if you run some foam edging like someone else mentioned.

I bought a cheapy air filter from RockAuto and it was exactly same size as OEM. Seems to work great without any dirt by-passing filter.

It was a good read. Think I'll check mine more closely as its an aftermarket cheapy that reaplaced my OEM.

So when I bought my Paj mid last year it had just been serviced with a new air filter. Not sure on the brand but it says "Made in Indonesia" written on it. I bought a Ryco filter but had not installed it yet as the current filter still looked in pretty good nick. After reading the above today I decided to remove and measure the thickness of the seals on both filters. "Made in Indonesia" filter was 10mm and the new Ryco was 12mm. I inspected the box internals and could not see any signs of dust getting past the filter. I don't drive dusty roads very often though. I've since decided to ditch the Indonesian filter and install the Ryco which I will monitor over the coming months.
