16-up KX450 / air filters

I just purchased a 17 KX450F and immediately picked up a few of my favorite DT1 air filters. I was surprised that these filters don't fit the stock filter cage that well as the "tangs" from the filter cage are too short to reach the holes in the filter.

The stock air filters are made differently and register perfectly with the filter cage tangs.

I'm not spending $200 for DT1's aluminum cage when the stocker is perfectly fine.

Do the other aftermarket air filters fit better??

I have 7 standard Twin Air filters for my 17 and they all go on with no issue.
