Arlen Ness Stage 1 Big Sucker Air Cleaner Kit For Harley Twin Cam

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 than 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.

Works great with my new pipes! The big sucker gives my bike good power and goes great with my new pipes. Easy to install, took me about 30 minutes. August 25, 2015
Looks great, easy to install. This filter kit install was pretty straight forward and easy. I really think it made my dyna look better, and with a fuelpak, she runs amazing! August 17, 2015
Satisfied with the quality and performance Bought this about two months ago. Install was relatively simple took me about an hour and a half. simple tools were enough to do the job. Looks clean, feels secure and well built. the filter was the last component I needed for a Stage I. Once installing the filter I did notice a pretty good improvement in performance, which is great for such a cheap mod. Throttle response was better. I could really feel the improved air flow. Overall I really enjoy the look and performance boost. the only negative thing I have to comment on is how quickly the becomes visibly dirty. Given, it is an open air filter so by nature that is going to happen. I have the plain filter, not the steel jacketed one. I don't know if that has an effect on how dirty it is. but the piece that is facing forward is pretty filled with bugs/dirt after about 3k miles, while the rear facing part is brand new. my plan is to rotate it until that side gets dirty too, then take it off for a good cleaning. August 17, 2015
Works great in combo with new exhaust Bought this in combination of a new exhaust and fuel pack. It is working perfectly with the other 2 pieces and allows much more air to flow through for better acceleration. I would recommend this product. August 11, 2015
Straight forward design. Growing up near Arlen Ness' old small East Bay shop, the name is one that I can trust. Along with the reputation of customizing, Arlen's air cleaners seem to be on 90% of all stage 1 upgrades. Given the no frills design, and reasonable price, this was an obvious choice. There are several choices in this price range, but I knew I would receive a quality product for my money. Installation was easy... Maybe 15 minutes tops on my 2015 FXDB. Without a doubt, I would put this on any bike I own in the future. Revzilla's customer service was ridiculously perfect. Ordered, shipped, and on my door step the next day. I couldn't even drive to the Ness store in Dublin that fast. July 30, 2015
nice cleaner, looks awesome! super fast shipping, easy to install & great eye appeal. I would recommend this to anyone. Revzilla is a great seller, and I have already recommended them to friends with bikes. Five star seller! July 27, 2015
Arlan Ness big sucker looks awesome and easy to install! Bought one of these, it looks really cool and easy to install. Get lots of complements from riders I don't even know. Great product! Service from Revzilla! July 27, 2015
Good product Install was easy..can definitely tell a difference. would recommend May 18, 2015

A shopper asked: I want to replace my air cleaner, exhaust and computer for my harley davidson. I have a 2014 Dyna Street Bob. What would be a good recommendation? Can I do it myself? Nov 3, 2014

Joshua L: I have a 14 fxdb also. I put my exhaust, air cleaner, and computer all on myself. If you know how to read then its simple. I went with the Vance and Hines FP3 pack and you can program modes yourself, pretty simple. The tuner doesn't work the greatest unless you have exhaust and air cleaner done. Once I installed air cleaner, I noticed big gains and immediate throttle response. But I have the tuner set up for it too. Nov 7, 2014
