Arlen Ness Stage 1 Smooth Big Sucker Air Cleaner Kit For Harley

Arlen Ness, the "King of Choppers", knows a thing or two about performance. The Big Sucker is the best-selling and most powerful air cleaner kit on the market - period. Simply, the Big Sucker is designed to give your engine maximum airflow for maximum performance. Testing shows that by simply installing a Big Sucker kit, horsepower gains of up to 21% are attainable.

Big Sucker kits feature patented, hidden breather backing plate technology - this means the breathers are incorporated into the air cleaner housing itself. Gone are unsightly external hoses and hardware, giving your bike a super-clean look. Each hidden breather has a sealing O-ring at the heads and exits at the carburetor or throttle body inlet to provide efficient internal engine pressure relief. 

The Standard air filter elements are made one at a time using the finest materials available. Standard filters are all pre-oiled, and feature four layers of surgical-grade cotton to promote airflow and filter air effectively.

The Synthetic Stainless Jacketed filter features a synthetic material that is water resistant and never needs to be oiled. Just wash and re-use. The mesh supporting the gauze is made of a rust-resistant stainless steel as opposed to standard carbon steel, and the synthetic filtration gauze is in black or dark grey, rather than the pink/red hue of the Standard Filter.

The filters are hand-poured one at a time in a urethane body, unlike many other filters that are spun, which can leave a residue on the filtration media.

All kits include a Big Sucker backing plate, high-flow filter, chrome banjo bolts, gasket, hardware, and simple instructions. 

Note: Air cleaner images are for reference only. All kits on this page will include filter of your choice.

Very satisfied
Just bought this and slapped it on in no time, can really hear the air being sucker in, am running the synthetic filter they claim is water resistant, and I have rode it in the rain several times since then without a rain sock, have not had any problems with water getting thru, does just as described and looks good, fully recommend to anyone.

The Best Bang For Your Buck!!
If you are looking for a perfect way to let your engine breath without breaking the bank, while adding a great looking product, look no farther than the Arlen Ness Big Sucker!! Installation was a breeze and the entire install was less than 20 minutes from start to finish!! I have 3 Harleys and all 3 have the Arlen Ness Big Suckers on them!!

No better choice available!
You won't find a better air cleaner for the price. It's also not very big, so if you have long legs, it will not be in the way for your knees.

Easy install. Great look. Not huge performance boost but noticeable gains. Arlen Ness always a must. Pricey but worth it.

I used Stage 1 BS before on a 2008 FXSTC with no issues. The same can be said about the 2008-2015 Stage 1 BS on my 2015 FHTRX. Great quality and easy to install.

big sucker
Looks and works great. Backing plate has a couple of grooves for the blow by and smaller vents than the Harley air cleaner which keeps the oil from soaking the air filter and dripping on the ground and blowing back onto the bike.

Performance you can hear!
I ripped the stock exhaust off my '16 RG and replaced it. Then I reflashed the ECM, but she still needed to breathe, so the stock air cleaner went in the trash too. Insert the BIG SUCKER. This kit is great. It was easy to install. The price point is second to none. You get the proven quality of Arlen Ness and you can actually hear the bike breathe when you get into the throttle. I love the look of the stainless filter and smooth cover, simple yet still catches the eye. I absolutely would recommend this product, if you're looking for a simple, clean, upgrade over stock.

Big difference in efficiency, runs smoother. The stainless element is bomb.

I needed a quality air filter that would also accept other filter covers. This is a good set-up, very easy to install. I used the Vance and Hines FP3, couldn't be happier with the performance.
