Big Sucker Rules

July 22, 2012

This is my second purchase of a Big Sucker air cleaner and again still great chrome quality and of course great increase in performance. Had the first one on my 2004 1200R Sportster with Vance and Hines short shot stagger chrome pipes. Now I have a 2003 883XLH with the same setup and boy did that wake her up! Will buy again!

Excellent Kuryakyn quality.

April 3, 2012

This is the second choice of breather upgrade that I made. I would rather have one that covers the actual filter, but there are few choices for my production year Road King. For three years (1999-2001) HD Delphi Fi carb used an oblong throat instead of a round one and because of that design there are fewer choices for breathers. This one is good though and its design actually uses a hidden cylinder scavenger system built into the breather which eliminates the ugly rubber hoses on the OEM breather. The parts are well chromed and it is easy to install. One caveat that you need to keep in mind, the instructions calls for using a high temp silicone seal. Not everybody has Hi Temp Silicone laying around so you might as well buy some when you purchase this unit. The other thing that is a little difficult to understand in the directions is the threaded screws that thread into the backing plate that holds the filter onto the backing plate. It is not clear to how far you need to screw them into the plate. If you leave them out too far you will not be able to torque the screws down to the recommended torque force because you could pull the screws out with the carburetor threads when you tighten the filter. That is another thing, you will need to have access to a torque wrench for both the bolts that screw into the cylinder heads and the backing plate. It is critical that you torque the cylinder head bolts correctly or else you might cause problems in that connection if you don't. Its great looking and a nice addition to your HD. My only question is whether I should put a sock on the cover when or if I should get caught in the rain. It does not include one in the kit. Usually open filters have a caution about riding in the rain or washing your bike with a pressure hose.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

This really sucks

March 23, 2011

I replaced my stock Air intake/filter with an Arlen Ness Stage 2 Super Sucker. It looks great and went on very ealily, less than 30 minutes. I immediately noticed an increase in HP and overall speed. The sales people at DK were great to work with and answered all of my questions. In fact I also purchased new Cobra Steedster Long exhaust and a Power Commander 5.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Love this Filter

March 9, 2011

I added the Ness Stage2 filter to my 09 Super Glide along with Cobra Longs and a Power Commander 5. HP went up by 20% and they look awesome. THe sales lady (PAM) at Dennis Kirk was very helpful in making sure I ordered the right part number.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
