The DT1 is the best i've tried.  This is onlys so when the correct oil and application techniques are used.  There is a thread here somewhere on this.

I get months at a time use from mine with no ingress whatsoever. headbang

I found the paper filters work well on the bitumen and sand dunes where there is no dust.  But hit the dirt tracks with them and the motor is finished very quickly !dirtbike!
