Customer Reviews

 matt96fxstc Posted:

Love it...looks good installs easy works like a champ.

 reapmf82 Posted:

Very easy to install and, with the proper tuning or carb adjustment, will provide a very noticable increase in horsepower

 Zenzac Posted:

Improved power and fuel economy. Doesn't cover up the engine like other models and brands.

 kttn99 Posted:

Hey what can you say it is an Air Cleaner. The install went well but all the holes didnt line up exactly so I had to tweek it a little bit to get the bolts into thier hole. I have a 04 Road king at works and it fits very well. Yes I would recommend this product to you.

 davidkratz Posted:

I am very happy with filter and the price was right.You don't even know its there but it WORKS

 pprice832 Posted:

it a must have , say bye bye to stock

 LennyA Posted:

I had this installed on my '09 Street Bob using the original air cover. I didn't notice until it was too late but the cover is too close to the tank and has rubbed a groove through the paint and into the metal on the bottom side of the tank. I took it apart but there apears to be no adjustments that can be made to the positioning.

 MacDaddy04FXST Posted:

I couls tell a lot of difference in power. I love this thing

 angusmactabush Posted:

Outstanding unit, improves performance, a must if you run true duals and are carbed.

 dragonsr Posted:

I really liked the design, installed without any problems, but the instructions could have been better.

 jayballs3 Posted:

Love it. Works with the original cover, but looks great naked.

 mjjohnson31 Posted:

Easy installation. Fast shipping.

 Mark dunlap Posted:

Good fitup, sounds great, stock cover fit as adv.

 tribulus Posted:

This filter kit looks great and performs as well as the stock one does.

 Slater2111 Posted:

This sucker delivers! I was skeptical of how much of an improvement I would get out of the Big Sucker. Install was relatively easy with the instructions, however if you can take off the stock box and breather you can put this guy on no problem. I immediately noticed the throttle responds much quicker without a hesitation. Fit and finish is top notch just like performance.

 gagilmore01 Posted:

Arrived quickly and even though the instructions could have been more detailed, it was very easy to install.

 jjwhitey Posted:

If your going to change your pipes you have to change your air cleaner so your bike can breath and boost your horse power

 ScottHM1 Posted:

Was easy to instal. Works great with stock air cleaner cover on my heritage. Gives bike a lot better breathing than stock.

 illbefat Posted:

Wow. Alot of bang for your buck. Plus easy to install

 Mr.T Posted:

Very happy with this item. Was easily installed on my 2013 FatBoy, and my factory air cleaner cover could still be used.

 b2dmadmax Posted:

high quality unit good design. only one thing on my wide glide had to use a couple of washers between stock cover and new filter to keep from puckering the outer cover.

 Cdeane Posted:

Great product! Easy to follow instructions. Straight forward installation. This air cleaner clearly outperforms the stock air cleaner. Happy with the results so far.

 Hexluther Posted:

Good quality. Very easy to install.

 Bigkahuna1064 Posted:

Good Product easy install

 Herkyamm Posted:

Nice Air Cleaner, simple to install. Alows the bike to breath alot better.

 talbee Posted:

Quick and easy to install. Big improvement over stock.

 Clautner Posted:

Got this on 8/13. Took about 20 minutes to install. Instant power!! I highly recommend this upgrade. I did not rejet my carb, but did adjust the air idle mixture. Runs like a champ!!!

 dynamics3 Posted:

Worth the money, easy install. Immediate improvement. Rapid throttle response increased torque. must be installed with fuel pack and slip-ons or header pipe.

 lngbrder Posted:

Easy to install great product

 snbrk Posted:

I plan to buy this for my 2005 Road King classic. I also plan to buy billet cover 605-924 which matches the derby cover and timing covers I have already purchased. Should look great!

 homeyt54 Posted:

Great filter, easy installation

 sintax Posted:

This is my third Big Sucker and now have them on all my bikes. The quality is great and installation really could not be easier. Arlen Ness even has a walk through video on their website you can watch as you install this kit.

 bergie74 Posted:

Very easy to install and didn't have to buy an aftermarket cover.

 Dano1960 Posted:

Took me 10 minutes to install and works great

 tvan1988 Posted:

Nice intake for the price

 twildbill1 Posted:

Keeps the oil off the timing cover. exactly what I needed.

 Mastachin Posted:

Sweet! Took about 30 minutes and I was test riding! Very happy with the intake.

 elaineella1 Posted:

I installed one on my wifes sporty and saw a major change. So when i purchased my 2013 limited i installed a big sucker on it to get it breathing. easy install and quick.

 jeroehner2 Posted:

Gotta l!ove it Posted:

Great finishing just in Chrome by the guys at Arlen Ness. Don't waste your $$$ on a Harley Stage 1 cause they aren't finished and you'll pay a lot more.

 gnonanc Posted:

Super easy install, fit right into place, was able to use the stock (custom painted) cover I have with NO MODIFICATIONS.

 sid1012 Posted:

Easy to install and looks great!

 dhoday123 Posted:

opens up the airflow and makes it breath, easy to install!

 rjjmoore Posted:

Easy to install & it works as advertised. Everything that I have purchased from JP is of top quality & install is easy too!

 Jspina558 Posted:

They sound great easy to install

 Kallas69 Posted:

Extremely Satisfied. Thank you.

 mike.madden38 Posted:

An excellent AC. It's definitely worth the price. It gave my 2012 HD Dyna Switchback a noticeable increase in horsepower.
