I purchased the S&S air system to get better preformance out of my Harley Davidson 1200 Custom. I previously had a Screaming Eagle air cleaner, a stage one jet in the carb, and preformance exaust. The S&S intakes more air and gave improved preformance over my old air system. I had faster response and a few more mpg. I would recommend this system to everyone wanting more out of their bike. I also like the look over the ham can air cleaner on the sportster line. Dennis Kirk also had the best price.
However, unlike what Jay66 wrote, I thought the instructions were terrible--photos were worthless--black and white and looked as though reproduced thousands of times. The screws that hold the cover on are too short to easily install. In fact, impossible for me. Had to go to the H-D dealer and find slightly longer chrome screws to finish the job. But after quite a bit of fiddling and a parts run, it looks great and gets quite a few comments from folks on the old-school look that I was shooting for.
I wrecked my 03 Road King in September and bought a new Heritage. Starting from scratch I made a lot of changes all at once. V&H Long Shots, Power Commander V from fuel Moto, 16" Burly apes, chrome HD controls and many others. This air cleaner was the perfect fit for me. It came with everything in the kit and installation was a 10 minute job. Unlike the ape hangers. If you are thinking of going with the Ness Big Sucker and like the looks of the S&S go with the S&S. You won't regret it. My pipes are loud and look great but I think this cleaner is awesome. It shines and has the old school look. It is well worth the money. If you are going for max air flow they have a high volocity filter that fits this cleaner to get the higher air flow.
This air cleaner was shipped and delivered very quickly, installed very easy and gives my 06 Night Train that perfect touch of old school. Couldn't have been more easy. Thanks, Dennis Kirk. Once again you made it happen!
For the money will not find a better air cleaner kit that has this classic look and performs like all S&S products. Instructions were good. Simple install. All parts were provided and was easy to understand. Very high quality parts and comes with a K&N filter. Can not say enough good things about this kit. Was bought for my Harley Softail Slim 13' with 103. Fitment is good and the air cleaner cover sits about the same as stock. If you use the hiflow filter the cover will stick to far out for my tastes and rub on your leg. If you are looking for a classic, great flowing intake that is top quality this is it.
This install was on my '05FLHTI. Being from the cheese State I've always liked the S&S teardrop, and having one between my legs on an EFI is the kind of aesthetic cheat that makes me smile. Only took and hour and a half. Unhooked the battery before start-up to give the EFI fresh eyes. After a little "self-calibration" it smoothed out. First test ride was awesome. Huge difference between this S&S supplied K&N filter and the stock canned ham. Intake area is likely doubled. Results in a smoother idle and a little more mid range pep. I'm not one to grip it and rip it but the high end is probably satisfying as well. I'd give a fifth star on the fit/finish category but there were some goobers on the chrome cover I had to buff out and the cast banjos bolts should be chromed. Overall very satisfied and should have done this long ago. Only other change from stock is Cobra Tru-duels. These add-ons did not require reprogramming. Time to ride!
