On my 2014 i have a EJK and removed the snorkel and cut out the restriction in the stacks.

Its more lively in the upper revs 5.5K and up, it spools up faster and feels a bit more zippy.

Other than this, and to me more important, the driveability is sooo much better, its way smoother overall and the snappy throttle has gone.

Stock airfilter - MIVV titanium oval slipon with baffel in, the baffel is cut to half lenght.

Will a 2014 UK bike have this restriction? I've seen aluminium upgrade on YouTube?

I've just taken these out. Bike starts ok,and seems to rev cleaner? Not tried on road yet. Should I encounter any problems?

I don't think you will encounter any problems if you like the way it runs leave it like that
