I found a good solution to having to clean the stock air filter after every ride. It works extremely well, super easy to install, clean, and easy to service.
To start with, I purchased a SuperAtv depth finder snorkel kit. (I used a promo code, and Father's Day discount to give total of 25% off). I installed just per instructions, except turn the intake towards the center of the vehicle. And did not install that SuperAtv intake screen This installation took me about 1:15, only because I had to remove the mudbusters to get to the factory air intake. Next I installed the Spectre SPE 8161 Black, low profile universal air filter. Then a generic water dust screen to go over the top (I think this is important as well). The first trip we went to royal blue June 23 -26 and it was a dust bowl. I removed rinsed and washed that generic screen everyday. Then wash, and treated the Spectre filter when I returned. I just installed a brand new Honda air filter prior to this 350 mile ride, and it still looks brand new.
One last note I did not install the snorkel, for the deep water function, I did not install any of the check valves that were included, I only purchased for the air intake relocation Factor !
I hope you find this helpful, this was an easy project, with a quick payback, in both parts and labor!
Itemized cost delivered ( SuperATV.Com & Amazon) $216 snorkel, $20 Spectre air filter, $9 dust screen shown, $19 dust screen preferred. $19 K&N Air Filter recharge kit (estimated 3 to 4 uses)

Does having multiple filters cause a noticeable power loss?
There will definitely be some power loss. It might not be noticeable right away. One probably wouldn't notice if the prefilter loaded up slowly. The dusty environment I ride in would require me cleaning a tiny filter at least twice per ride. I don't see why anyone would want to choke their engine in least. Do it right and put on a particle separator. You will be glad you did as you won't ever restrict the air flow nor will you be a slave to a tiny filter.

I have the KWT and it is great. But if I had it to do over again, would use a pre filter instead. Simpler and cheaper for similar results. Keep a spare if in dusty conditions.
