Very happy with the air flow of this air cleaner. Also like the extra clearance for my knee. Looks and works great on my sportster. 30 min install.

This filter is great. I put it on my Wife's XL1200L Sporty and right away it made the bike have more punch. The stock filters on Sportsters don't breath near enough.

Have these on my other HD's so putting one on my Sporty was a no brainer. The installation was easy and no more ugly stock intake. Don't forget to rejet!

I bolted this bad boy on my 2006 Harley Sportster 1200 Low. It bolts up easy using the Mikuni air filter adapter ring. Even though most of the parts were there, there were still some missing. There was no little metal straws that go on the end of the breather bolts. I ended up using different breather bolts that reached farther. Since then I just bought a new breather kit from Arlen Ness, so I will put that on. Overall, great product! Bolt it up man!!

On balance a great product, some of the instructuions could have been clearer and the adapter insertys for the 2004 and upward hollow oil breather bolts are not supplied in the kit..seems strange. That said, I used the other suplied bolts for the earlier Sportster model which looked very similar. Comes with gaskets and loctite etc, overall a comprehensive kit. Great fit and finish. Recopmmended.

Very good product. Nice looking and great power.

I like my Big Sucker so far. It fits well and is rather simple to install. The only reason I do not give it five stars is the instructions. Ness recently decided to machine the breather bolts out which means you do not need bushings. Well, they did not note that in the instructions so I spent a week of phone calls with J&P only to find out Ness did not update their instructions. Other than that, it seems to be a good product.
