Arlen Ness Stage 2 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 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.

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

The Stage 2 kit differs from the Stage 1 by including a 20% larger air filter element.

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

Pretty Awesome Works wonders on my Sportster. Only problem is size. . This intake is huge. They do mean BIG sucker! June 14, 2016
Shreds Most definitely woke my bike up! Looks awesome on my sportster 1200 custom September 9, 2015
Great product, rather large It's a bit larger than the stock air filter (hence the name...), so you can't quite knee-grip the tank like before when doing any tight maneuvers. Awesome suction though! September 8, 2015
Great quality great price I'm running this on a 2015 sportster 48. Couldn't be happier with it. August 19, 2015
great shipping was fast and fit only issue was I had to cut a gasket out of gasket paper to make an airtight fit from the mount to the frame May 8, 2015
this product is great very easy instructions to use, anyone looking to upgrade their stock air cleaner, this is a great product. it really wakes up the bike. highly recommended a tune or rejet. April 27, 2015
easy to install, looks great, noticeable performance improvement easy to install. simple, straightforward. looks awesome with flat chrome cover - best looking option on the market. my stainless steel filter was black and not white like in the photos, for what its worth. can feel the performance improvement. very happy with product.
