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

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

The Stainless Jacketed Filter differs from the Standard Filter in two areas: The mesh supporting the gauze is made of a rust-resistant stainless steel as opposed to standard carbon steel, and the cotton filtration gauze is in its natural (white) color, rather then the pink/red hue of the Standard Filter.

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

Arlen Ness Stage 1 Big Sucker Stainless Jacketed Filter Air Cleaner Kit For Harley Sportster 88-13 5 5 5 5
Get the stainless jacketed filter- Great looks this aircleaner was easier to install than the previous hypercharger and got rid of those rubber hoses for the crankcase. This bolted right to the engine. One caution is when you tighten down on the filter it can start to cant as if ready to collapse. March 10, 2014
Looks really good I can feel the difference in power and looks really good February 24, 2014
Looks and Sounds Excellent! Easy to install, added some aggressive sound and definitely smoothed out my acceleration... Although I did rejet the carb at the same time of install, which is recommended anyways. Would definitely recommend!!!!!!!! October 21, 2013
Feel it in the seat of your pants This product took over 2 hours to install, because I dropped a bolt in the kitchen when I initially opened the box. After finding the bolt it took less than 10 minutes. The instructions are kinda vague so if you lose parts like I did the tiny black and white pictures don't help much either. The performance of the part is fantastic! You can really feel the new found power and breathability. I also noticed a marginal increase in the decibel level of the exhaust and a more poppy carb type sound. I have a fuel injected 1200 with V&H slip on's. I thought the price is a little high for all it is, but hey what motorcycle parts aren't expensive? Overall the part is great and my riding buddies commented on the new found performance, style and volume level. July 25, 2013
Great, really great! Simply and great part. I totally recommend this for sportsters, the sound of the engine is better now, and the response of the bike is incredible. June 4, 2013
