Big Suckers rock! My buddy's with the K&N wish they had gotten this instead. My only regret is not spending the couple extra dollars to get the chrome backing plate. For the little increase - its worth it, since the bracket IS slightly visible.

digitalskypilot

The Big Sucker works great!

ajmoley@hughes.net

Stage 1 Big sucker air filter system is great. A must for your bike

bruceruby

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

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

dcrummey

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

better fuel mileage,getting more air than stock

jamesposey

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

roadqueen1200

easy fit

_iceman

Very awesome and easy to install!

richardowning

best bang for the buck very happy with it

holmesjim54@aol.com

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

noticeable difference

PANHEADDAN

Head bolts did not fit correctly

rgs61smith@yahoo.com

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

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

Nick63

Worked good

94heritagesoft

I ordered the wrong part for my 1994 harley davidson heritage softail classic

leftwing98

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.

printkey

Very good product. Nice looking and great power.

leumas

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.

chrisrcromwell

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!!

rinikj

simple and very functional, great alternative for a sporty.

tgullett

Easy installation. Great performance. Looks sharp. And a great price. Well worth the money.

sintax

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!

mee73novass

Great product! Easy to install, adds great performance to the engine, for the right price!

boozer22

opened her lungs up to receive the vital air she always longed for

rootin

very pleased

Dprezasman

Great performance great price. Would recomend adding performance pipes

Gamble333

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.

harleyman71

It was simple to put on and has made a big improvement on my bikes power

TKOxley87

This is not the first one I've installed so install is super easy and always fits just right. The power gain is just what one would expect.

Ridesw1leg

excellent product. easy install, and super fast shipping. Now I just need a cover. lol

immaculateconcept

Beautiful. My bike is a little more responsive now. I can actually FEEL it breathing more deeply. Yoga-status. Beautiful. 2013 xl883n.

chuckmcg

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.

jrtwilley01

I am not a big Arlen Ness fan but this product is pretty good. I would recommend it to others.

stevemiller00

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.

mcleod.g@sbcglobal.net

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

teswaney

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

Excellent quality and easy install.

bobrowe

eazy to install.

boozer22

Instant cheap horse power

cecils

This made a big difference in how my bike runs !

grumpysgt52

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

Chief4Ret

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

infantryman7513

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

Mensch3

Great price

majorleewild

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

s_bauer

Great looks love it easy to put pn

knightenforcer

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

Looks good on bike.

ri red

Have purchased this for my other bikes in past..

obwan22

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

MikeH0302

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

Bike is running so much better.

seanburke417@gmail.com

Beautiful fit. Really lets my 96 breathe!

jeff1124

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

mydixiewreck

Great Product, Fair Price, Fast Shipping Much improved over stock Air Cleaner... Thanks JP Cycles for stocking such good products !!

bedbug

Worked great on my 2002 Dyna Wide Glide. Rejetted the carb with a CV deluxe kit, bike already had a Vance and Hines shotgun exhaust. Made a noticeable improvement and you could here the difference in the sound.

Hackd

Easy install replacing the OEM assembly on a 1999 FLHT. Improved breathing too. Regular 8" round air cleaner cover fits without problem if you want to get rid of the stock twin-cam cover.

Finalfour

Improved high rev performance. An excellent purchase.

Kev dog

Great air filter makes a huge difference in throttle response...... and even sounds better. Easy on and off for cleaning.....

Goneridin

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.

wkaleo
