Yeah! Even if you'd use the thin plastic cover for the K&N filter, which K&N has in the market, tiny drops of water would enter the intake anyhow. Best to use the stock filter during the rainy times!

Im sure glad I have the K&N stock replacement filter and not universal filter.

There are plenty of discussion on this subject. You can start from here (K&N filters).

Please continue your discussion there.
