Arlen Ness Naked Stage 1 Big Sucker Air Filter 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.

The air filter elements are made one at a time using the finest materials available. The red hue 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 Big Sucker air filter kit features a one-piece aluminum backing plate and eliminates the need for banjo fittings, hoses and a filter. The breather exits at the mouth of the throttle body, creating a virtually closed-loop system.

Features:

  • Hidden breather technology built into backing plate
  • High-flow standard or synthetic air filter
  • Accepts stock air cleaner cover
  • Chrome banjo bolts
  • Gaskets, hardware and simple instructions included
  • Made in the USA

Note: Kit uses your OEM cover and does not include one. Image is for reference only - actual product may vary.

Arlen ness big sucker stage 1 for oem cover.
I highly recommend the big sucker. Installation was a breeze and the hardware is definitely professional quality. The fact that you can also still use your oem cover makes eve simpler. I've actually fabricated a round cover that uses the stock cover hole pattern. On days that call for a good amount of rain I can just pop two bolts out and put the stock cover onto keep some of the water off the filter.

Great Product, installation less so
This is a really nice kit. I actually ended up buying one elsewhere, but after checking here, found that what said would fit, wouldnt, so I had to cancel my order. Thank you Revzilla, for clearly and explicitly stating which parts work with which bikes! Now, RevZilla shipped it quickly and free USPS, which means I could have still had it delivered on Saturday, a huge bonus if you waiting on parts, that UPS would have kept till Monday, but luckily, Friday morning it showed up. Now heres the only thing I can complain about. Arlen Ness sends you a couple extra bits, as each kit fits multiple years, and bikes. So after tackling this with both AN instructions, Revzilla instructions, AND The ones that came in the box, they were ALL different. Being a gear head, and engineer, I figure it out, and it went on smoothly without issues, but if you were just trying to follow along, you'd be in a pickle.
Now - This is the most important thing I can say about these air cleaners:
RE TUNE YOU BIKE AFTER INSTALLATION
Adding 21% more horsepower sounds good, except on either the carb'ed or EFI bikes, adding the equivalent of 21% more horsepower in air volume means you are going to be running Lean on a bike that the stock ECU and carbs are already running lean from factory to meet the EPA requirements. Lean Bad!! and if you've added an exhaust too, now your really lean and possibly detonating.
Carb guys can throw on a bigger jet and you're fine.
For us EFI guys, for about the price of one of these, pick up a Fuel Moto or similar and add a tune to the bike so it runs right. Will run better, and safer with more fuel.
