Customer Reviews

 bruceruby Posted:

I had purchased this item before, but I overtightened the air cleaner cover and the studs that go the carb broke and the whole thing fell off. So if you install, torque to specs. I like this item and I purchased this again.

 dletica Posted:

The super sucker was everything it said it was and is working VERY well on my '94 FXR

 dcrummey Posted:

Very well made product. Very easy to install. Supported other products to make a noticible overall improvement in engine power. Would recommend this product to others.

 LCBritt Posted:

 jamesposey Posted:

Sweet. Clean install, Preformance increase out of the box. Great fit, simple, solid. Can get to carb to adjust without all the plastic crap in the way. 1997 FLHT

Very awesome and easy to install!

 richardowning Posted:

best bang for the buck very happy with it Posted:

Good buy, I was considering another filer system but your Tech recomended this one. Installation ended the oil drip from stock air filter asssembly.

 nastyfatboy Posted:

noticeable difference


Head bolts did not fit correctly Posted:

Ordered the big sucker stage one for my 97heritage. It was delivered fast. The kit came with everything you needed to install. All the parts were good quality and workmanship on the backplate was very good. It installed fast and performs really well. A noticeable increase in pulling power and take offs. Not enough lock tite included but had some to finish it off. Good buy for that type of performance. Good job j&pcycles and Arlen ness.

 mrk697 Posted:

looks and works very easy to install, also very promped deliver

 stevemiller00 Posted:

This AC system cleaned up all the oil mess and runs well. I did question the fact that the Screamin Eagle version uses a 1/4" tube and the 2 holes in this are 1/16" each but the Ness R&D people answered my questions within 3 hrs and I'm very satisfied with their answer and the product. Highly recommended. Posted:

If you are mechanically inclined at all, an easy install. The directions included need to be updated.

 teswaney Posted:

Great product. Between the installation of this product,a Vance & Hines Fuel Pack, and the Screaming Eagle exhaust it has really perked up my bike and made it run great. I would recommend this product. It is worth the money.

 67v35er Posted:

This made a big difference in how my bike runs !

 grumpysgt52 Posted:

gave me a little more hp that I was looking for. Instructions were easy, even for me to follow.

 Chief4Ret Posted:

I really feel this air filter is going to help with more horse power. I already feel the difference

 infantryman7513 Posted:

This kit breathes awesome on my 103". Only took a few minutes to install. I am extremely happy with it.

 Mensch3 Posted:

Great price

 majorleewild Posted:

Seems to be doing the job linked up to VH Pro 2-1 and VH Fuelpak. Bike runs great!

 s_bauer Posted:

Great looks love it easy to put pn

 knightenforcer Posted:

This is one of my favorite from Arlen Ness. I've had this on my previous bike and now my softail also got one. I like how it makes things simple and gets rid of the rubber breather hose. (it has built in channels for the breather tubes)

 christopherparks Posted:

Looks good on bike.

 ri red Posted:

Have purchased this for my other bikes in past..

 obwan22 Posted:

This air filter system was one of the most easily installed system I have seen. Works great too.

 MikeH0302 Posted:

Very easy to install and fits nicely behind the stock air filter cover. However, the instructions that come with the product are a bit confusing and the tiny bottle of locktite is a joke.

 junestewart Posted:

Bike is running so much better. Posted:

Beautiful fit. Really lets my 96 breathe!

 jeff1124 Posted:

2nd one of these stage 1 kits I've ordered. Economical way to get to stage 1. Works great.

 mydixiewreck Posted:

I order this a-ness big sucker for my 03 fat boy the women that took my order said it will fit my fatboy s&s e carb, well it did not a-ness don't make a big sucker for a s&s e carb now i have to send it back and get a s&s stealth air cleaner(not the same)but I found one of the salemen who rides and knows what he's doing will help me out and he did,,i will never let a women or someone lookin in a book to place my order,,,thank you

 Goneridin Posted:

Easy to assemble and performs as described. I like being able to keep the stock cleaner cover on the bike here in Florida where the rains can be severe and soaking the exposed filter systems.
