get an outerwear pre filter, you should be fine, motor savers are an ok filter. all of em work the same. be careful dont put too many pre filters, on at the same time. it will make your motor run HOT.
also your motor's going to run hotter because of the paddles in the sand. take an extra set of clutch shoes with you. other than that HAVE FUN...

Extra clutch shoes, because the added drag of paddles going through the sand is going to cause slippage somewhere in the drive train. the clutch shoes and bearings are going to get some serious abuse.

as for filters you can run filter and 2 pre filters, one being foam and other outerwears, check your motor temps, if getting noticably hotter than normal, ditch the foam prefilter, and just run the outerwaerers and the foam air filter. make sure there sealed really good. zip ties rubberbands, what ever. and your good to go.
