Arlen Ness Stage 2 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 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. 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 synthetic filtration gauze is in black or dark grey, rather than the pink/red hue of the Standard Filter.

The Stage 2 kit differs from the Stage 1 by including a 20% larger air filter element. All kits include a Big Sucker backing plate, high-flow filter, chrome banjo bolts, gasket, hardware, and simple instructions. Made in the USA.

Note: Air cleaner images are for reference only. All filters kits will come with your choice of filter.

Excellent quality and fitment. Easy to install
Bought this after watching the Lemmy video. I've been burned by quality on Ness products in the past, so I was a little skeptical. Excellent quality, made in the USA. Super easy to install. I really like the integrated breather passages instead of a rubber hose to go soft or split.

Great So Far
I purchased this item to start upgrades on my 2016 Heritage Softail Classic. Price was great and it was easy to install.
You can really hear the bike sucking in the air compared to the factory air cleaner.
I have about 1,000 miles with the big sucker on the bike and am glad I made the change.

This thing SUCKS...in a good way
Bought this stage 2 for my 2011 HD Road King. Delivery was super fast. The manufacturer's instructions left something to be desired but install wasn't hard. Immediate performance enhancement and you can hear the air being sucked into the engine. Can't wait to complement with some new pipes and fuel pack. My first purchase with RevZilla and will definitely be back for more.

Big Sucker Stage 2
I purchased the stage 1 and 2 currently using the stage 2 looks great easy installation. I will see how it goes without a cover. As to the stage 1 you can put your stock cover over.

Great intake, great price
Bought the big sucker to replace a stage 1 kit that utilized the factory filter cover. Works great and when you lay into the throttle you hear it really sucking the air in. Only drawback is the profile is deeper than the stock intake and so floorboard extension kit is pretty much a must otherwise your right knee is always pressed into the air cleaner and your boot is halfway off the floorboard. Other than having to spend like $40 for the extension kit the big sucker is great. Looks great on my road King, and sounds great too.

I need a less restrictive air cleaner that will work with the Vance and Hines slip-ons I ordered and the 255 cams already installed on the bike.

Would like to know if the Big Sucker comes with a 58mm backing plate for the CVO 58mm throttle body?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2014
Can I use the Stock Air Cover to keep that unmodified look?
A C on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No way. And keep in mind: This air cleaner is really big, in diameter as well as in thickness. I have installed a floor board extender kit to get the boards further out.
If you want to keep the stock look, there is a K&N Filter element that you can use.
Is the stainless steal filter washable?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you spray it with Mean Green or similar degreaser every 5K miles per the instructions
hello, you say it 's fit 2008 to 2017 but on my RK 2015, it don't fit ??
A shopper on Oct 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should it is the same motor, 103?
