Fitment for Vance & Hines Naked VO2 Air Intake - 71003
The air filter was easy to install on my 2010 streetglide - I purchased a V&H twin slash slipon when I first got the bike and wanted more power - It made an imediate improvement in power and performance keeping the stock look -
Installation was very easy on my 2012 XL1200X. Looks good on the bike, opens up air flow, and gives me a little more room. I also like the fact that the engine is much easier to clean now, no bulky air cleaner in the way of push rods etc. I also bought my vance and hines short shot HS slip on mufflers, and vance and hines fuel Pak from dennis Kirk for this bike. This set up has worked out extremely well for me... Bike souds great, runs great, and looks great. It has been a pleasure dealing with Dennis Kirk. Thanks for everything guys!
I would reccomend this product . it is a simple easy to do upgrade. the fit and finish were top notch. all parts are there to do the install. after install you do need to install a fuelpak. its best to do both at the same time.
This does not fit with stock 2014 air cover. After trying to install the stack air cover would not fit. Contacted Vance and Hines and they pointed to a statement on their website stating does not fit with stock 2014 air cleaner. Now if Dennis Kirk would upgrade their site.
Seems to work, looks great! FYI A C.D. will fit just right as a cover :) I have more clearance for my legs since this is a lower profile than the stock air cleaner.. Shipping was fast!!! forgot to add that to my other reviews!!! 2007 H.D. Nightster
Had a SE Stage 1 breather on '11 Fltru that had a lot of oil blow back and saturated the air cleaner with oil, not only that, oil accumulated in the cover and eventually down on the engine. V&H replaces what HD eliminated...the tubes that run back into the throttle body just as the stock air breather did.
This aircleaner will not work with the stock sportster aircleaner cover as indicated in the description. A separate cover will be required. Dennis kirk offered to let me return it but it does flow air well so I have kept it. Vance and hines offers some ugly skull cap covers. If you don't like the skull cap covers it will work with a stock twin cam cover. I am running one of the screaming eagle retro twin cam aircleaner covers and it does look nice. If you really have sense of homour, get this and install an electroglide aircleaner over it. The next time someone tells you that you have a nice electroglide you can smile from ear to ear and say thanks.
I bought the V & H VO2 intake to replace my aging SE system. This intake is really simple to install -- took longer to remove the old junk. I was concerned because most of the reviews were for folks who had FI and purchased the Fuel Pak in addition. My 2001 Fat Boy is carburated and it works great! Slight power gain and additional throatiness in the V & H 2 into 1 pipes were noticeable from the start. Great inexpensive product from the good folks at Dennis Kirk! Got it right away with free shipping to boot!
I installed the VO2 air intake on my 2008 FXDF Fat Bob. I only know how to do basic maintenance so believe it when I say this install is very easy to do. The blown up image that comes with the instructions can be a little confusing, so instead of having to search for an image that makes things more clear, I am uploading an image that will hopefully clear up what is to be done with the breather hoses. In total, install took me about 30 minutes. My first scare was reaching for a tool and having a huge spider jump out on my hand. My second scare was the throttle response, sound of my bike, and performance of this great price air intake. My bike sounded meaner, performed like a whole new bike. I only have Rush slip-ons and a Cobra Fi2000 auto tuner for my fuel management system. I totally recommend this product. I am keeping the stock air cleaner cover on my bike. Since it didn't change the look of my bike, I am not uploading a picture. I am so glad I paid attention to the number of reviews/number of people that bought this air intake compared to how many people bought other ones. Dennis Kirk ruled with fast shipping and best price. As long as you can beat the minimum for free shipping, you can't go wrong!
I really like the design of this intake. I've used several other well known brands on my 1200 conversion and they all tended to get really oily around the filter, sometimes even leaking onto the engine. The V&H Naked VO2 fixed the problem by adding tubes to the breathers that wrap around and point directly into the air intake.
Adding a skull cap insert finished this intake off perfectly. It looks really sharp. It's larger than the Joker Machine High Performance Air Cleaner and Smaller than an Arlen Ness Big Sucker -- the VO2 looks perfect on a Sportster, in my opinion.
I used this product to replace an Arlen Ness big sucker which started leaking oil after 5000 miles. The V&H uses breather vent tubes like the oem which eliminates this problem. This is my second bike wth this system first bike had no issues in 15,000 miles.
Looks great with just a skull cap cover. I love the look of the black filter matches my engine very well. Vent hoses are visible but are also black so still looks good with a wrinkle black engine behind it. Moves a ton of air !
I chose the VO2 because I wanted to use the stock air cleaner cover when I did the stage 1on my 2012 Electra Glide. It is a perfect fit and very easy to install. The parts are high quality stuff. I'm very happy with the VO2. Good choice.
Installation time was about 15 minutes. Very easy to follow instructions. This has breather tubes which some intakes omit. I wanted to keep the stock cover and this intake works perfect with it. Would highly recommend this intake for anyone looking.
This is the second Vance & Hines part after the exhaust and wow, throttle response improved a ton. Can't wait to install the Fuelpak! Installation was fast and easy. Improved looks as well as performance of the bike. I used a CD for the cover and it fit perfectly. Great product at the best price I could find...Thank you!
Nice product. Instructions could be a little more clear, as I had to go on-line to find pictures of what finished install should look like. This was due to the fact that instructions were generic for all models, but product is not the same for all models. Performance is worth it.
This intake kit was a piece of cake to install, taking maybe a half hour to 45 minutes including removing the stock airbox. Combined with the V*H Fuelpak, it made a noticeable improvement in throttle response and acceleration. In all, I'm very happy with this purchase.
Prompt delivery and decent price. Installed in about 10 minutes on my 2010 Wide Glide. Everything fit perfectly. Can tell quite a big difference in my bike. Also installed the Fuelpak and already had the VH slash cut slip-ons. Would definitely recommend this product.
I recently installed this product on my 2011 Fatboy. I found the service at DK excellent, a lot of the Harley dealers could take some lessons from these folks. Their turn around delivery time dosn't get any better. The V&H VO2 naked air cleaner was a perfect fit, and was ideal for my application, as I wanted to keep my stock cover. This thing fit better than the OEM stuff I took off. installation was quick and easy, and with the addition of the V&H FuelPak really woke up the Engine, and with the Long shot HS Slip on's it now starts, sounds, and runs like a Harley is supposed to. All I can say is great products, and excellent service.
I was really impressed with your pricing, promptness of delivery, customer service, and everything else related to my order. The VO2 air intake works perfectly with the fuel pack and big radius exhuast I purchased. I was a little worried that they wouldn't size right with my bike, but it all worked great!!. Thanks again
If you're looking for a good bang for the buck and plan on running the stock cover then this A/C is the way to go. This is the second time I've put one of these on a bike and I don't have any complements.
