I think I answered this same question previously.  I have the YK88SN1 in my TS850S/AT, and for me, it was a waste of $139.  I wish I had invested that $139 in something else for the station.  I don't like the 1.8 kHz filter's response; it muffles received audio and does not have the sharply defined skirts of the standard 2.7 kHz filter.  Although I still have it installed, I very rarely use it.

I agree with Steve, although my experiences are with the YK-88SN (solder-in) version.  Unless the QRM is severe and on BOTH sides of your desired signal, then IF shift usually works as good as a narrower filter, and you can adjust it to get just enough of the offending signal and no more.
